When Lynn's husband is diagnosed with early-onset dementia, strange things start to happen - things that can't be explained - and her perfect world starts to crumble... Unputdownable, Hitchcockian domestic noir from number-one bestselling author Louise Voss. 'The slow reveals and hints at the darkness to come make it impossible to put down' Sarah Pinborough 'A brilliant tale of deception with a twist that took my breath away' Mark Edwards 'Brilliantly unsettling' Jane Casey ____________________ Lynn Naismith gave up the job she loved when she married Ed, the love of her life, but it was worth it for the happy years they enjoyed together. Now, ten years on, Ed has been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, and things start to happen; things more sinister than missing keys and lost words. As some memories are forgotten, others, long buried, begin to surface ... and Lynn's perfect world begins to crumble. But is it Ed's mind playing tricks, or hers...? ____________________ 'A disturbing, brilliant tale of lies and psychological manipulation' Kate Rhodes 'Tense, super-twisty and well-written' Amanda Jennings 'A cracking page-turner that sucks you straight into the dark heart of human behaviour' Marnie Riches 'Completely gripping' Cass Green 'An addictive thriller with a damaged and relatable heroine at its center, The Old You is an original novel that is both shocking and touching' Foreword Reviews 'Twists, turns and stabs you in the heart. It deserves to be huge' Martyn Waites 'I was guessing right to the end' Katerina Diamond 'Cleverly plotted and beautifully executed' Susi Holliday 'Poignant, clever and terrifically tense' William Shaw 'A must-read for all psychological thriller fans' Steph Broadribb 'A twisty, thrilling read with engaging and complex characters!' Sarah Ward 'Kept me up way past my bedtime ... really original and compelling' Howard Linskey 'Exceptionally clever, intriguing and mysterious ... this is how a psychological crime thriller should be written' Random Things through My Letterbox 'Gripping and twisty' Mel McGrath 'An expert piece of contrivance' Publishers Weekly 'Ingeniously plotted and totally addictive' Paddy Magrane 'A masterclass in how to write an accomplished, clever and slick domestic noir - characters that are believable, secrets that are merely hinted at and twists that are genuinely jaw-dropping without being absurd' Beverley Has Read
