‘Shocking, disturbing and utterly original – will grip you from first page to last' - Paula Hawkins

Sally Diamond cannot understand why what she did was so strange. She was only doing what her father told her to do, to put him out with the rubbish when he died.

Now Sally is the centre of attention, not only from the hungry media and police detectives, but also a sinister voice from a past she cannot remember. As she begins to discover the horrors of her childhood, Sally steps into the world for the first time, making new friends and big decisions, and learning that people don't always mean what they say.

But who is the man observing Sally from the other side of the world? And why does her neighbour seem to be obsessed with her? Sally's trust issues are about to be severely challenged . . .

Dark

Be warned that this book gets VERY dark and is centered around some very uncomfortable themes which are not for the faint hearted!
Sally’s story has a disappointing ending I feel but I had to finish this book no matter how uncomfortable I felt.

Incredible

Couldn’t put it down.

Too Grim for me

Wasn’t what I was expecting (that’s on me), but not my genre. Better characterisation of Sally than the character in The Maid (which was really very basic).
