Shes part of the family now. For betterand for worse . . .

When Alex met Natalie she changed his life. After the tragic death of his first wife, which left him a single parent to teenage daughter Jade, he was desperate to leave the pain of his past behind.

But his newfound happiness is shattered when the family home is gutted by fire and his loyalties are unexpectedly tested. Jade insists she saw a man in the house on the night of the fire; Natalie denies any knowledge of such an intruder.

One of them must be lying, but Alex is faced with an impossible choice: to believe his wife or his daughter. As Natalies story unravels, Alex realizes that his wife has a past he had no idea about, a past that might yet catch up with her.

But this time, the past could be deadly . . .

Praise for this book

"A fantastic thriller--dead-on domestic noir, full of tension and surprises. I loved it." - Lee Child

"So engrossing that I forgot to turn off the bath taps. Nearly caused a flood." - Jane Corry

"A mesmerising, beautifully-written domestic thriller that really stands out from the crowd. I flew through it." - Mark Edwards

"Beautifully written and well-crafted, the characters of Natalie, Rachel, Sadie and Alex stayed with me long after I finished reading and I resented anything that stopped me from getting back to them. I read it in two days, though I would have read it in one if I could!" - Sandie Jones

"An enthralling thriller that lives up to its chilling premise." - Renée Knight

"An engrossing tale of sexual obsession, secrets and lies. . . . Chilling." - Shari Lapeña
