The astonishing new thriller from the bestselling author of Try Not to Breathe. Get ready to be #hookedbyholly!
Robin and Sarah weren't the closest of twins. They weren't even that similar. But they loved each other dearly. Until, in the cruellest of domestic twists, they were taken from one another.
Now, in her early 30s, Robin lives alone. Agoraphobic and suffering from panic attacks, she spends her days pacing the rooms of her house. The rest of the time she watches - watches the street, the houses, the neighbours. Until one day, she sees something she shouldn't...
And Sarah? Sarah got what she wanted - the good-looking man, the beautiful baby, the perfect home. But she's just been accused of the most terrible thing of all. She can't be around her new family until she has come to terms with something that happened a long time ago. And to do that, she needs to track down her twin sister.
But Sarah isn't the only person looking for Robin. As their paths intersect, something dangerous is set in motion, leading Robin and Sarah to fight for much more than their relationship...
A gripping story with engaging, brilliantly written characters. - Cosmopolitan.com
[A] smartly plotted psychological thriller... plenty of last-minute bombshells await. - Publishers Weekly
A trio of compelling, if damaged, characters and the traumatic events that scarred them at times threaten to swamp this smartly plotted psychological thriller from British author Seddon (Try Not to Breathe). The story centers on yin-and-yang fraternal twins Sarah and Robin Marshall, as well as Callum Granger, the shy, sensitive classmate who becomes their de facto stepbrother after the two sets of parents permanently trade partners heedless of the children's best interests ultimately shattering both families. Seddon skillfully pieces together the now-estranged twins' lives by shifting narrators and time frames between the fraught past and the precarious present, which finds Robin, formerly lead guitarist for a popular rock band, the agoraphobic prisoner of her Manchester home, and a desperate Sarah plotting how to get back into the life of a three-year-old girl she cares deeply about. Plenty of last-minute bombshells await, but a number of disturbing revelations somewhat deaden their impact.

Caught by surprise
This book covered so many issues yet I didn’t get to each one and roll my eyes as it was too much. I didn’t see the ending coming. I was invested in Sarah and Robin’s stories. A fantastic read about siblings, step families and what damage can be done!
Kept me hooked from page one and read it on train within a week!
