Returning early from a disastrous date night with my husband, I know something is wrong the moment the wheels crunch the gravel drive of our home. Inside, the TV is on and a half-eaten meal waits on the table. My heart stops when I find our little girl is alone in the house and our babysitter, Sasha, is missing…
Days later, when I’m arrested for Sasha’s murder and torn away from my perfect little family, I’ll wish I had told someone about the threatening note I received that morning.
I’ll hate myself for not finding out who the gift hidden inside my husband’s wardrobe was for.
I’ll scream from the rooftops that I’m innocent – but no one will listen.
I will realise I was completely wrong about everything that happened that night…
But will you believe me?
Twisted and absolutely unputdownable, Date Night exposes what goes on behind the closed doors of a happy home and the dangerous truths we ignore to protect the ones we love. Perfect reading for anyone totally gripped by The Wife Between Us, Friend Request or Gone Girl.
Libby is happily married to Sean and has a young daughter Alice. Then one morning, she finds a note on her car windscreen….”Sean is having an affair”…
This really starts to worry her, she trusts him, but then notices him acting a bit vague and asks him outright if he having an affair. He assures her he isn’t and they arrange a date night to put it all behind them. The babysitter Sasha arrives and off they go….but Sean is distracted by his phone and Libby loses her calm and they go home early…..but Sasha is not there….Alice is home alone!
They search but Sasha has disappeared! What has happened to her?
I can’t really say much more for fear of spoiling this marvellously twisted and dark thriller. Utterly engrossing, a real time thief and I can thoroughly recommend it.
