It was supposed to be my family’s promising new start, but now it’s a nightmare I can’t wake up from…

I need the two men sitting opposite to trust me. My family’s happiness is riding on my getting this job. I smile – there’s no link between having a friendly face and being trustworthy, but humans are programmed to think there is. Even us doctors, who should know better.

They’ll know about my past from the newspapers – the court case, the threats, the lies that were told – but what’s important now are my children. This has to be the new start we so desperately need. An escape from my old job, my ex… and the scandal that nearly ruined me.

What I don’t know yet is that if I convince them to trust me, I’ll be putting my family in terrible danger. I’m trying to make things right, but this is when it starts to go very, very wrong…

Utterly twisty and completely unputdownable. This insanely gripping page-turner is perfect for anyone who tore through Friend Request, Gone Girl or My Lovely Wife.

‘The story was fantastic!! Deliciously dark, twisted and dangerous. Filled with lies, deceit and jaw-droppingly shocking behaviour, the author managed to make me squirm with unease and seethe with anger all in one go.
