'A.J. Park is a master of suspense who knows how to keep readers hovering tensely over the edges of their seats' - Sophie Hannah

'This is a real page turner. I finished it in one go!' Martina Cole

A freak accident. An impossible choice. But what was...

THE FIRST LIE

When Paul Reeve comes home to find his wife in the bathroom, bloodied and shaking, his survival instinct kicks in.

Alice never meant to kill the intruder. She was at home, alone, and terrified. She doesn't deserve to be blamed for it. Covering up the murder is their only option.

But the crime eats away at the couple and soon they can't trust anyone - even one another...
