'Unpredictable, challenging and compelling' Sophie Hannah

From the first time I saw them together I knew it felt wrong. I didn't like the way he touched her or the self-conscious way he played with Molly and Luke. Joanne saw none of it of course. So I did it to prove to her that she was wrong. I did it for us.


Emily's instincts tell her that best friend Joanne's new boyfriend is bad news. Emily fears for Joanne. Fears for Joanne's children. But Joanne won't listen because she's in love. So Emily watches, and waits . . . and then she makes a choice.

But Emily has a past, and secrets too. And is she really as good a friend to Joanne as she claims?

'Never before have I read such a compelling, chilling read that kept me intrigued from beginning to end . . . If you adore psychological thrillers and books such as The Girl on the Train, then this is a must read!' Red Headed Book Lover Blog

MEDIA REVIEWS
Alison Bruce is fascinating. Her imagination is always unpredictable and her writing is challenging and compelling -- Sophie Hannah
A superb writer -- Steve Mosby
A wonderful standalone from Alison Bruce whose DC Gary Goodhew novels have built her a reputation as a master of her craft. I Did It For Us held me from the off. It's compelling, slickly plotted and brilliantly written -- Amanda Jennings
Menacing and insidious -- R J Ellory
As always, Bruce produces a rewarding read * The Times *
A superb writer -- Steve Mosby
Bruce is doing for Cambridge what Colin Dexter did for Oxford with Inspector Morse . . . She uses her city just as deftly as Dexter did his, however, and adds subtle touches of feminine intuition and guile. Her plots are deceptively simple, yet describe the frailties of the human heart with a rare skill . . . The death propels Goodhew back into police work. His innate dignity and Bruce's flair make her one of our most interesting crime writers * Daily Mail *
It's all orchestrated (from opening adagio to allegro finale) with authority * The Independent *

The tension is ratcheted up to the bitter end! -- Cath Staincliffe
An exciting debut from a very promising new talent -- Paul Johnston
Never before have I read such a compelling, chilling read that kept me intrigued from beginning to end . . . If you adore psychological thrillers and books such as The Girl on the Train, then this is a must read! * Red Headed Book Lover Blog *
The final twist is a corker that I did not see coming... Alison Bruce is better known for her police procedurals, but on this showing, she's every bit as skilled and creative when she turns her hand to a psychological thriller * Mystery People *
