'Dark. Twisty. Addictive. I couldn't put it down' LISA JEWELL

She loves her family. She'd never let anything happen to them . . . Would she?

On the outside, Maddie is a happy young mother with a new baby. But on the inside, she's afraid.

Afraid that her marriage to Lucas isn't what she thought.

Afraid that she's having mysterious blackouts where her memories should be.

But how can she ask for help when something terrible is done to her family?

Who can she turn to, who can she trust?

And how does she know it wasn't her?

Full of twists and turns, this is perfect for fans of I Invited Her In and The Family Upstairs.
