What Lies Within (Paperback)Annabelle Thorpe (author)
- We can order this
An intense, claustrophobic psychological novel about the dark side of expat life, and what being out of your comfort zone can do to you, set in the vibrant souks and ancient riads of Marrakech
A unique friendship, built on a lie
Freya, Paul and Hamad. Three friends from two different worlds; a seemingly unshakeable bond, suddenly under threat.
A move that would change all their lives.
The trio have stayed close since university despite Freya and Paul's marriage and Hamad's wealthy lifestyle - so different from their own. Then an incredible job offer from Hamad sees Paul and Freya move to Morocco.
A city where nothing is as it seems
Marrakech soon proves a perplexing place to live. Instead of reinvigorating their marriage, Freya finds the move is driving them apart. Revelations about their shared past force her to acknowledge that neither Paul nor Hamad is quite the man she thought. When a shocking crime is committed, Freya finds herself cast adrift in the dark corners of a bewildering city, unsure who to trust or to believe.

This story had me gripped from the first page. A fascinating read about trust and betrayal with three amazingly drawn characters and a fantastic sense of place. I could almost smell the spices and feel the street dust of Morocco between my toes. Deftly plotted and a superb supporting cast. It was unputdownable! -- Claire Dyer, author of The Last Day
