Blind Date (Unabridged)
When I met Malik my life changed in the blink of an eye. We were set up - Chris and Simon called it a blind date - and I suppose they could see that I was lonely, that I needed someone in my life to make it more exciting. And they were right.
He was so good to me. He seemed to know exactly what I needed to feel safe and loved again. We’d talk and laugh into the night, and I haven’t had someone on my side since my divorce. But soon the honeymoon period was over.
It started with my car’s tyre being slashed and strange calls at the radio station where I work. Then there was the morning I stayed at Malik’s and found myself locked in his flat....
Waking up next to him, I asked myself: is this charming, handsome man someone I should feel scared of?
When a woman’s attacked outside my work the police want to question Malik. Everyone says I shouldn’t trust him.
But I have dark secrets of my own, things I’ve revealed to him in the middle of the night, and it might already be too late to keep myself safe....
Thrilling and gripping, Blind Date is a dark and unsettling story about deception and how much we can trust the people we love. For fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, and anything by Lisa Jewell.
