`Wildly gripping and unputdownable. This is a brilliant book' Marian Keyes

How do you escape what you can't remember?

What is making Helen Graham so jumpy and evasive? Newly arrived in a tiny Yorkshire village, she finds the locals' curiosity her worst nightmare.

Looking over her shoulder every day, she tries to piece together her past before it can catch up with her. But with everything she knows in fragments, from her marriage to her career as a war photographer, how can she work out who to trust and what to believe? Most days she can barely remember who she is...

She can run. But can she hide?
