CUCKOO by Julia Crouch is the original psychological thriller: a dark, deliciously unsettling drama in the vein of I LET YOU GO, THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR and THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN.

Rose has it all - the gorgeous children, the husband, the beautiful home. But then her best friend Polly comes to stay.
Very soon, Rose's cosy world starts to fall apart at the seams - her baby falls dangerously ill, her husband is distracted - is Polly behind it all?
It appears that once you invite Polly into your home, it's very difficult to get her out again...

'A brilliant debut novel...A totally compelling new novel about a woman who helps her best friend after she experiences a tragedy in her life...Gripping stuff...Cuckoo is a riveting and spooky story that keeps your eyes locked in the page and leaves you feeling shaken and out of sorts' * Heat *

I loved this book its a very enjoyable suspense read. If you have read Cuckoo or thinking of reading Cuckoo, you would like Everything and Nothing by Araminta Hall, the novels are not the same but both a good suspense... More
