Winner of the Specsavers Crime & Thriller Book of the Year 2018.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2018

On a stifling summer's day, 11-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. 'Jack's in charge,' she said. 'I won't be long.' But she never comes back.

Three years later, mum-to-be Catherine wakes to find a knife beside her bed, and a note that says: 'I could have killed you'.

Meanwhile Jack is still in charge - of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they're alone in the house, and - quite suddenly - of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother. But the truth can be a dangerous thing....

Genre: Mystery
