Summary

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller

All she wanted was the life they had....

It is the day of Erin’s 40th birthday party. Pink and silver balloons drift through her garden, the platters of food are empty, and the recycling is overflowing with empty wine bottles. 

As Erin mingles with groups of family and friends, surrounded by love and laughter, she feels like the luckiest woman alive. She has no idea what fate has in store....

Then a little red envelope lands on the doormat and everything changes. 

Inside is a birthday card from somebody she never dreamed would get in touch. Its message is a chilling reminder of the dark past that Erin has worked so hard to bury, a past that could put her precious family in terrible danger....

A gripping, spine-chilling listen brimming with secrets and lies. If you loved The Girl on the Train or The Woman in the Window then this dark, twisting psychological thriller from best-selling author Jess Ryder is guaranteed to have you gripped.

Disappointingly average

Not suspenseful, and drawn out for 10hrs, with an average ending. Nothing like her previous book The Ex-Wife - thats much better.

Lots of twists and turns

Really enjoyed this book. Wasn’t predictable and there were lots of twists and turns - though a couple of loose ends I wasn’t sure about. That might have just been me!
The character of Jade was complex and interesting. Well written and kept interest high throughout.

Excellent suspense thriller!

I loved this book. It's definitely a stay-up-late, can't-turn-off audiobook! Great plot, unique, with interesting characters and excellent narration. Highly recommended!
