Publisher's Summary

This is not the happy family you think.   

The fire crackles, my son smiles, the man jokes whilst I pour drinks.   

But my husband has disappeared. The man is a stranger. My skin crawls every time he brushes my hand.   

He says if I don’t play along, he has photos that will destroy my family.   

What happened the night before my husband disappeared - the night I don’t remember?   

There’s nothing I can do to save my family...is there?   

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller with an ending you will never see coming! Perfect for anyone who adored The Girl on the Train, The Wife Between Us, or The Woman in the Window.

Pitiful main female character. Maddening!

So many “seriously?” moments in this book. The Jen character is weak, though she’s a medical doctor. She’s a total pushover and the book had many “why in the world would anyone react like this?” Keep your credits away from this one.

This book made me angry

The female in this story made me so angry with how she allowed a male to control her. The story had potential but missed the mark in my opinion

Unbelievable!

I found it very strange and it annoyed me all the way through the book, which then spoilt the story, that Jen, who had met a man once when she was very drunk/drugged and was raped by him, then let's him turn up at her house and demand to move in and live like a couple, and the only reason she felt she had to let him in was because she didn't want people to know what had happened between them! Very infuriating! I spent my whole time thinking "what the heck, as if'

Really good read or audio listen.

Good book to keep you holding on, really liked this but just wish the last couple of chapters had given a little more.......
