Publisher's Summary

The electrifying new thriller from Shari Lapena, author of the Sunday Times best seller The Couple Next Door.

Why would you run scared from a happy home?

You're waiting for your beloved husband to get home from work. You're making dinner, looking forward to hearing about his day.

That's the last thing you remember.

You wake up in hospital, with no idea how you got there. They tell you that you were in an accident; you lost control of your car whilst driving in a dangerous part of town.

The police suspect you were up to no good. But your husband refuses to believe it. Your best friend isn't so sure. And even you don't know what to believe....

    "Stylish."

    A brilliant engaging book. It's the sort you don't want to actually end, the stylish narration adding to the sumptuous feeling as you become totally enveloped. I love everything this author produces.

    "Overall Disappointing Saved by A Good Twist"

    I found the style of this book to be disappointing compared to Shari Lapena's other book. The characters were very one dimensional and difficult to relate to or to care about. The author never really develops them as believable people with motivations leading to their actions. I had no sense of what they were like or even how they looked. The story is fast paced without any real development. the only thing that saved this book for me was the final twist which I did not see coming. The book was also saved by the narration which was generally good.
