We all see what we want to see....

2019: Julianne is preparing a family dinner when her son comes to her and says he's found something on his iPad. Something so terrible, it will turn Julianne's world into a nightmare and make her question everything about her marriage and what type of man her husband is or is pretending to be.

1990: Holly is a fresher student at Oxford University. Out of her depth and nervous about her surroundings, she falls into an uneasy friendship with a group of older students from the upper echelons of society and begins to develop feelings for one in particular. He's confident, quiet, attractive and seems to like her, too. But as the year progresses, her friends' behaviour grows steadily more disconcerting, and Holly begins to realise she might just be a disposable pawn in a very sinister game.

A devastating secret has simmered beneath the surface for over 25 years. Now it's time to discover the truth. But what if you're afraid of what you might find?

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"Such a confident debut from Barnaby Walter and the most disturbing thriller I’ve read this year." - Emma Curtis

"Walter's debut is an assured piece of world-building, with characters both flawed and real, and a crescendo that sweeps you up then crashes you down. Unpredictable, clever & subtly twisted. Loved it." - Helen Fields

"Devilishly well-plotted, crisply written...a smashing debut!." - A J Finn

"A dark and sometimes disturbing debut; a compelling story with credible characters. Walter emerges as a powerful new voice in the world of thriller writing." - Diane Jeffrey
