“Gripping . . . had me hooked from the very first page. I couldn’t put it down and read it in a weekend . . . keeps the reader on their toes.” —Amazon reviewer, five stars
A darkly suspenseful story of troubled marriages, small-town secrets, and shocking twists by the author of The Couple in the Photograph.
After a row with her husband, Jocelyn Dexter leaves London and heads to their country cottage for a break. While she’s there, Jocelyn joins a group of women one night at the manor house nearby—and gets entangled in other people’s relationships.
Picking up on the tension beneath the surface, Jocelyn entertains herself by indulging in some snooping, and tries to pry secrets out of the locals. The tables turn when she discovers that someone is spying on her, and it becomes clear that someone wants her to go back where she came from.
Jocelyn considers it a challenge. But involving herself in the affairs of others will lead her down a dark path . . .
