Product description


Readers in search of the summer's nail-biting, page-turning, thought-provoking thriller to take to the beach - the hunt is over... chilling and smart (The Times)

I swallowed this novel in almost a sitting, eyes on stalks until the early hours. Elegantly and intelligently written... an addictive read (Sunday Times)

Here is that perfect combination of a luminous writer and a big, page-turning story. This hugely suspenseful novel will speak to anyone who has ever felt responsible for keeping a loved one safe, whether it was a child, a partner, a parent, or a friend. Meloy's characters-the adults and the children-feel like real, living people I'll never forget (Helen Fielding)

This is the book that every reader longs for: smart and thrilling and impossible to put down. Read it once at breakneck speed to find out what happens next, and then read it slowly to marvel at the perfect prose and the masterwork of a plot. It is an alarmingly good novel. (Ann Patchett)

Do not start this book after dinner or you will almost certainly be up all night (Kirkus Reviews)

I can't remember the last time I gobbled a novel down so fast (Guardian)

Ominous, addictive...In crafting this high-stakes page-turner, Meloy excels as a master of suspense (Publisher's Weekly)

No character will emerge unscathed as Meloy ratchets up the tension (Mail on Sunday)

[Meloy is] a wise and astonishing conjurer of convincing realities (New Yorker)

Her characters are drawn sparingly, but they leap off the page (New York Times)
