Waterstones Says

The author of the former Waterstones Thriller of the Month Part of the Family returns with another exquisite portrayal of the world of espionage, the personal cost of living with deceit and what happens when the paths of an FCO agent and an investigative journalist unexpectedly cross. Enigmatic and compelling, A Double Life establishes Philby as one of the most exciting writers in her genre. 

There are two sides to every story...and then there's the truth.

Gabriela, a senior negotiator in the FCO's counter-terrorism unit, runs a small and powerful team based in Whitehall. She is tenacious, hard-working and the family breadwinner. Her partner Tom - a freelance architect - looks after their two small children. When Gabriela returns from a seven-month stint in Moscow, something doesn't seem right.

Isobel is a journalist working for the local paper in Camden. Walking home from a party one night, she witnesses a horrific attack. But someone has seen her, and is making themselves known in increasingly frightening ways. As Isobel starts to investigate, she uncovers a dark network of human trafficking and exploitation.

While Gabriela's life begins to unravel, Isobel gets closer to the story. With one desperate to uncover the truth, and the other determined to hide it, the two women's lives converge.

Compulsive and compelling A Double Life is a beautifully written and deeply chilling examination of deceit.
