Waterstones Says

From the author of the chilling Lullaby comes another master class in wire-taut literary terror. An erotic and daring story - with electrically clear writing - Adele will captivate readers with its exploration of addiction, sexuality, and one woman's quest to feel alive.

Adele appears to have the perfect life.

A respected journalist, she lives in a flawless Parisian apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son. But beneath the veneer of 'having it all', she is bored - and consumed by an insatiable need for sex, whatever the cost.

Struggling to contain the twin forces of compulsion and desire, she begins to orchestrate her life around her one night stands and extramarital affairs, arriving late to work and lying to her husband about where she's been, until she becomes ensnared in a trap of her own making.
