'A cracking book. Darkly funny, yet also touching and emotive' CJ Tudor

Imogen's husband is a bad man. His ex-wife and his new mistress might have different perspectives but Imogen knows the truth.

When he issues her with an impossible ultimatum, Imogen does something unthinkable, locking her husband in the cellar.

But how far will she go to protect her son and punish the man who destroyed her life?

And what if she's not the only one out for revenge?

A twist-filled, edge-of-your seat psychological thriller that fans of Cara Hunter, Lisa Jewell and Adele Parks will devour.
