Does Jessica know what the truth is? A stunning psychological debut with a shocking twist. When she arrives at work to discover every trace of the company she was working for has disappeared, Jessica's life spirals into free fall. Her romance with Michael, a celebrated criminologist, is already in trouble. He is sick of the unpredictable behaviour caused by her ADHD and is convinced she is a fantasist. When his flat is burgled and precious belongings that remind him of his dead wife are stolen, he blames her.

The volume levels are all off with this book. The narrator that voices Emma speaks far too quietly and has a feathery quality, that sometimes dips down/trails off to almost inaudible levels. The editing too is poor for the Emma parts, long silent pauses at the end of paragraphs. Overall an extremely frustrating listen, so much so I began to hate it when the POV switched to Emma. This should not have passed the quality check on ACX.
