My name is Emma Cartwright. Three years ago I was Susan Webster, and I murdered my twelve-week-old son.
I have no memory of what happened but you believe what your loved ones, your doctor and the police are telling you, don't you?
But if you can't remember what happened, how can you be sure that they are telling the truth?
And if there was the smallest chance your son was alive, wouldn't you do anything to get him back?
A heart-stopping, addictive thriller that will have you hooked from the first page to the last, perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, The Silent Patient and The Family Upstairs.

Susan Webster, the narrator of British author Blackhurst's captivating if flawed first novel, believes that she's guilty of smothering her three-month-old son, Dylan, to death in a fit of postpartum depression, even though she has no memory of doing so. After spending nearly three years at the Oakdale Psychiatric Facility, she's paroled and given a new name. Shortly after she settles in Ludlow, Shropshire, someone mails her a photo of a smiling young boy with the name Dylan written on the back. Scared and confused, Susan enlists the aid of Cassie Reynolds, her best friend from Oakdale, and reporter Nick Whitely to reexamine the crime. As Susan looks into her past, she realizes how little she knew about Mark, her ex-husband and the child's father. The danger to Susan escalates as the truth slowly reveals itself, but the plot goes off the rails under the weight of the implausible actions of several key characters, some of whom aren't who they seem to be.
First couple of chapters I was unsure but kept on reading so pleased I did, great book gripping story line
