Summary

Lexie’s got the perfect life. And someone else wants it....

Lexie loves her home. She feels safe and secure in it - and loved, thanks to her boyfriend, Tom. 

But recently, something’s not been quite right. A book out of place. A wardrobe door left open. A set of keys going missing.... 

Tom thinks Lexie’s going mad - but then, he’s away more often than he’s at home nowadays, so he wouldn’t understand. 

Because Lexie isn’t losing it. She knows there’s someone out there watching her. And, deep down, she knows there’s nothing she can do to make them stop....

Critic reviews

"A rival to Gone Girl for its addictive, twisted plot." (Stylist)

"A terrific debut, which gripped me from the very first page." (Cass Green, best-selling author of In a Cottage in a Wood)

"The writing is so vivid it's frightening...an astonishingly powerful exploration of how our own minds can be the darkest, scariest places of all." (Daisy Buchanan, award-winning journalist and author)

Yawn!

What a long 10 hours of boooooreeeeeeee.No suspense,no twists.I wouldn’t qualify this as a thriller at all.The characters are awfully irritating.The baby/fertility topic was taken to extreme.I couldn’t relate to this book and found it hard to listen too.Who picked these accents?!A nasaly American and dull Yorkshire?!?!?Dont waste your time.

Gripping.

Excellent read and very difficult to put down. A great portrayal of the affects of social media, even for the sane people out there.

Appalling narrator

Genuinely no clue where all the amazing reviews for this book came from because the story is dull and predictable and the narrator doing Harriet’s story is toe-curlingly bad. Don’t waste your money
