Product description

Product Description

International bestseller Nova Lee Maier delivers another gripping thriller about the darkness that lies in wait in unexpected places.

Deeply vulnerable after a traumatic birth, new mother Didi Vos is depending on her maternity nurse to help her heal. But despite her uniform, Hennequin Smith is no nurse, and healing couldn’t be further from her mind.

Though beautiful on the outside, Hennequin harbors ugly motives; slowly and subtly, she sets about her plan to gain Didi’s trust and then ruin her life. And when Miriam de Moor—a police investigator who suspects Hennequin played a role in her brother’s sudden death six months earlier—unearths horrifying secrets about Hennequin’s past, the destinies of the three women become chillingly linked and will come to a head in a thrilling, unforgettable climax.
