A PERFECT COUPLE. A PERFECT LIFE. A PAST THAT IS ABOUT TO DESTROY THEM.
A young married couple's lives are thrown into turmoil when a schoolfriend from the husband's past reveals a devastating secret that has remained buried for more than seventeen years.
Melanie and Gareth Sayer and their daughter, Georgie, are making a new start. But it's not always good to start again in a place you left behind — not when it’s a place where old scores are waiting to be settled. The picturesque village of Pencarew on the Pembrokeshire coast hides bitter resentments and jealousies . . . it is a place seething with unfinished business.
How well do you know the people you share your life with?
Can you trust them not to lie?
Can you trust them with your life?
Melanie is about to find out.

PRAISE FOR REBECCA GRIFFITHS:
Waterstones’ Review:
There’s something of the tenterhooks tension of a Daphne du Maurier to Rebecca Griffith’s dreamy and disturbing domestic thriller. In the summer of 1990, sisters Caroline and Joanna are sent to stay with their aunt Dora in the cloistered environs of the Forest of Dean. But their bucolic idyll is shattered by the discovery of a body, deep in the woods. Griffiths has a superb handle on her characters and their twisting motivations, spinning out a story of memory and long-term consequence that grips from cover to cover.

Media Reviews:
'An increasingly tense narrative with stylish writing that keeps her a cut above most of her rivals’ — Guardian
'Truly chilling’ — Woman
'Tense, intriguing, with a satisfying twist’ — Western Mail
'Eerie and tense' — Morning Star
'Superbly evokes the brooding beauty of the countryside and the menace that can lurk behind its hedges... Twisty, atmospheric and elegantly written, it has echoes of Daphne du Maurier with its shivering paranoia, fear and dread, and introduces an exciting new name to "domestic noir"’ — Daily Mail
‘This is a chilling thriller . . . a brilliantly written book’ — Sun
'Gripping’ — Hello
'Creepy’ — Heat
