About the Author
Nicci French is the pseudonym for the writing partnership of journalists Nicci Gerrard and Sean French.
Nicci Gerrard was born in June 1958 in Worcestershire. In the early eighties she taught English Literature in Sheffield, London and Los Angeles, but moved into publishing in 1985 with the launch of Women's Review, a magazine for women on art, literature and female issues.
In 1989 she became acting literary editor at the New Statesman, before moving to the Observer, where she was deputy literary editor for five years, and then a feature writer and executive editor.
It was while she was at the New Statesman that she met Sean French.
Sean French was born in May 1959 in Bristol, to a British father and Swedish mother. In 1981 he won Vogue magazine's Writing Talent Contest, and from 1981 to 1986 he was their theatre critic. During that time he also worked at the Sunday Times as deputy literary editor and television critic, and was the film critic for Marie Claire and deputy editor of New Society.
Sean and Nicci were married in Hackney in October 1990. Their daughters, Hadley and Molly, were born in 1991 and 1993.

The characters are in the main unbelievable. The idea that a professional single mother would take in an extremely vulnerable and at risk young woman is beyond belief.
I persevered with reading but found the first half slow and confusing mainly due to the fact I had begun to question so much of the writing and the characters actions.
The pace picked up and became much more of a read maybe two thirds through
I enjoyed this last part and finally found Nicci French the author. Still not certain about the ending though or Sam's lack of keeping the police in the loop....
I have enjoyed every previous read by Nicci French but this was by no means their best.
I will definitely be looking for their next book and making sure I have an undisturbed block of time to read it.
Like the football match 'you think it's all over' - and then it isn't and there's yet another twist to untie. Brilliant
Easy to order and very quick delivery best of all ex library but very good condition
I recommend as a good read with plenty of suspence
