The haunting, twisty new mystery from the author of Cuckoo

 She’s married to him. But does she know him at all?

Claire lives with her family in a beautiful house overlooking the water. But she feels as if she’s married to a stranger – one who is leading a double life. As soon as she can get their son Joe away from him, she’s determined to leave Duncan.

 But finding out the truth about Duncan’s secret life leads to consequences Claire never planned for. Now Joe is missing, and she’s struggling to piece together the events of the night that tore them all apart. Alone in an isolated cottage, hiding from Duncan, Claire tries to unravel the lies they’ve told each other, and themselves.

 Something happened to her family … But can she face the truth?

 Dark domestic suspense with a twist – perfect for fans of Ruth Ware and C. J. Tudor


Claire lives in a beautiful barn with her husband and son. Her husband runs a succesful vet clinc in the village and Claire has spent her life looking after Joe. Now Joe is older she has decided she needs to leave, taking Joe with her - but not is all as it seems as she tries to flee & learns more about Duncans life.

 Magie was unexpected. It was full of twists and turns. I honestly didnt know what was going on (obviously i could follow the narrative) but i felt like it was so shocking i had to consider if i had focused on every single word i had read. It was brilliant, it really drew me in as a reader and because it shocked me so much, it really worked.

We follow Claire as she prepares to leave Duncan with Joe beside her. I was never sure if the characters were reliable or not and i was certainly questioning everything. This was creepy, slightly spooky and tense to a reader that been said, i certainly enjoyed these feelings it evoked in me as we started to follow their tales and discover the lies they had all told.

 One to pick up and give a chance.
