HOW WELL DO YOU REALLY KNOW THE ONE YOU LOVE THE MOST?
'The most gripping psychological thriller of 2019' Stylist
This is a story about a married couple. They met, fell in love, had two beautiful children. So far, so ordinary.
But they have a very dark secret.
It's a story with a twist. And then another. And another.
You might think you've read stories like this before.
You'd be wrong.
By the end of the first chapter you'll be hooked.
At page fifty you might not sleep until you finish.
And when you turn the last page, you'll ask yourself one question:
How well do you really know the person you love most?
