The Night Visitor

(2017)
A novel by

 

"An elegantly written page-turner which pulled me in from the start and held its grip until the final page."
Renée Knight


"I held my breath between chapters and didn't sleep until I reached the end."
Clare Mackintosh


"Lucy Atkins is brilliant at ramping up the tension so that there's not a chance of relief until the end."
Polly Samson


"Not just one-more-page gripping but perceptive and beautifully written."
Lucie Whitehouse


Professor Olivia Sweetman has worked hard to achieve the life she loves, with a high-flying career as a TV presenter and historian, three children, and a talented husband. But as she stands before a crowd at the launch of her new bestseller she can barely pretend to smile. Her life has spiraled into deceit, and if the truth comes out, she'll lose everything.

Only one person knows what Olivia has done. Vivian Tester is the socially awkward sixty-year-old housekeeper of a Sussex manor who found the Victorian diary on which Olivia's book is based. Now Olivia's unofficial research assistant, Vivian has secrets of her own.

As events move between London, Sussex, and the idyllic South of France, the relationship between these two women grows more entangled and complex. Then a bizarre act of violence changes everything.

The Night Visitor is a compelling exploration of ambition, morality, and deception that asks the question: how far would you go to save your reputation?
