Product description

Review

'Stunning ... an extraordinary plot; intricate and twisted with dark secrets emerging at every turn. An engaging mystery with an ending you won't see coming' -- Alexandra Burt

'Atmospheric and beautifully written ... combines complex and believable characters with a heart-breaking and head-spinning plot' -- Mary Torjussen

'Dahl savagely delineates the price of living in a society that insists women must try to be perfect wives and mothers and have successful careers, too, or they'll be inevitably made to feel they're never good enough' ― Publishers Weekly (starred review)

'Unsettling, layered, bold, unpredictable, dark. EXCELLENT' -- Will Dean

'A novel of remarkable accomplishment that sets its nuanced and intriguing characters in the context of a plot that grips like a vice' ― Crime Time

'A riveting psychological thriller' ― Excelle magazine

'Alex Dahl's sharp characterisations make her story feel fresh' ― Sunday Express

'[Dahl] adds some twisted black humour and creates a tense narration that will keep readers intrigued and wondering how to approach the main character' ― Crime Review

'A rollicking great read ... [Cecilia] is a fascinating character who lies relentlessly, with reckless abandon, in a desperate bid to protect the big secret she's hiding' ― Connaught Telegraph.
