What Lies Hidden

(2020)
A novel by

 
 
Isobel McKenzie is an experienced and intuitive psychotherapist who is on sabbatical while recovering from illness. Reluctantly she goes to London to help out an old friend, solicitor Peter Wright, who is uneasy about the partisan nature of a proposed divorce settlement. He asks her to meet the couple, Thomas and Anne Banks, to assess the situation. Is Anne, a recovering alcoholic, possibly being coerced into signing an agreement which not only gives Thomas control of all their assets but also sole custody of their son?

Isobel immediately senses that something is awry and, despite herself, finds herself drawn deeper and deeper into the case. She joins forces with Patricia King, a resourceful and imaginative secretary at the law firm. As they talk to family and friends of the couple they discover conflicting tales of alcoholism, coercion and possible abuse.

With the divorce settlement set to be signed in ten days’ time, Isobel and Patricia find themselves plunged into a dark world of lies and subterfuge where they are in a race to uncover and prove the truth.
