Longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2014.
January 2014 Debut of the Month.
You of frail stomachs turn away from this. It’s brutal, bloody, sad and horribly compulsive. Concerning infidelity and the overwhelming desire to reproduce along with a couple of side plots to hold off the horror, this is disturbing stuff. Very good.
You're alone. You're vulnerable. And you have something that someone else wants. At any cost...If you liked Before I Go To Sleep, you'll love this gripping psychological thriller. Claudia seems to have the perfect life. She's heavily pregnant with a much wanted baby, she has a loving husband, and a beautiful home. And then Zoe steps into her life. Zoe has come to help Claudia when her baby arrives. But there's something about Zoe that Claudia doesn't like. Or trust. And when she finds Zoe in her room going through her most personal possesions, Claudia's anxiety turns to real fear...

'A terse and thrilling story not to be missed: the unforseen ending feels like walking on quicksand.' - Psychologies
