Publisher's Summary

A gripping new psychological thriller from number-one international best seller and Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg.

All that glitters....

People would kill to have Faye Adelheim’s life. She lives in an ultra-swanky apartment in the most exclusive area of Stockholm, she has a gorgeous husband who gives her everything she’s ever wanted and she has an adorable daughter who lights up her world. Faye’s life is perfect.

So how is it, then, that she now finds herself in a police station?

The truth is that Faye’s life is far from what it seems. The truth is that Faye isn’t even her real name. And now she’s been caught out. There’s no way she’s going to go down without a fight. The only question is – who will escape with their life?

Good but not great

Having read all the fallback series this very different. I was going to give up and skipped to the end which decided me to continue ( without knowing the ending) disappointed in a few things. They’re were not addressed and it often appeared that the author wasnt sure how we should view the main character. The sex part made the reader more perplexed as to what genre this book was

Difficult to listen to

Very disappointed with this book. Hard to enjoy a story with main character who spent too much of her life twisted up with revenge, secrets and deception. A real man-hating bore. Lackberg's other books will stay on my list though, as several reviews indicate this was a departure from the norm. The narrators were good.

Couldn’t put it down

I loved this book, couldn’t put it down and was sorry it finished. If you don’t mind the explicit sexual narrative then this is a cracking story. There is nothing like a woman scorned....
