Waterstones Says

The tragic end to an intimate dinner in an affluent West London home unearths a mesh of secrets and deception in this chilling, ingeniously plotted domestic noir from the author of Hold Your Breath.

Waterstones Thriller of the Month for April 2021

Four people walked into the dining room that night. One would never leave.

Matthew: the perfect husband.

Titus: the perfect son.

Charlie: the perfect illusion.

Rachel: the perfect stranger.

Charlie didn't want her at the book club. Matthew wouldn't listen.

And that's how Charlie finds himself slumped beside his husband's body, their son sitting silently at the dinner table, while Rachel calls 999, the bloody knife still gripped in her hand.

Classic crime meets Donna Tartt in this nerve-shredding domestic noir thriller that weaves a sprawling web of secrets around an opulent West London world and the dinner that ends in death.
