Hannah Riley and her musician husband, Will, hope that a move to the Suffolk countryside will promise a fresh start. Hannah, a human rights worker, is desperate for a child and she hopes that this new life will realise her dream. Yet when the snow comes, Will is working in London and Hannah is cut off in their remote village.
Life in Tornley turns out to be far from idyllic: Who are the threatening figures who lurk near their property at night? And why is her neighbour so keen to see them leave? Plus Will's behaviour is severely testing the bonds of trust.
Hannah has spent her professional life doing the right thing for other people. But as she starts to unbury a terrible crime, she realises she can no longer do that without putting everything she's ever wanted at risk. But if she does nothing, the next victim could be her....

The story had me hooked until the author rushed the end.
More could have been done to develop the ending between the husband and wife but instead it is as if the author was tired of writing so just wrote the husband back in to get to the happy ending instead of fleshing it out and showing his side of the reasoning. otherwise it could have scored five stars but I felt a bit cheated.
"Ridiculous but compelling"
I think that both Louise Millar and Clare Corbett should be congratulated as somehow from a ridiculous storyline full of plot holes, unbelievable happenings and stereotyped characters they have created an utterly compelling audiobook that I could not stop listening to ! This is definitely the weakest of Louise Millar's three novels but I still had to listen compulsively to find out what happened at the end. As ever, Clare Corbett narrates beautifully and it is probably her narration that stopped me abandoning it half way through.
"Loved it from start to finish"
An enjoyable read that had me wanting to know what happens right from the start
The moment her new friend lies to her partner and when a hiding place is discovered
Builds the atmosphere and tension well
A big fan of Louise Millars books and this is just as good as the earlier books. A good holiday read with the just the right level of suspense to keep you hooked
Was completely hooked , even though at times a bit far fetched. Ending predictable but dreamy . Lots of suspense. It was an easy listen good barrator.
I really liked this but I wasn't satisfied with the end. I wanted to know more! Great read though..
