In this dark, menacing thriller, Rebecca Fleet shows us a suspenseful, twisty yet emotionally devastating portrait of a family in turmoil.
Everyone brings baggage to a new relationship.
When Alex met Natalie she changed his life. After the tragic death of his first wife, which left him a single parent to teenage daughter Jade, he’s determined to build a happy family.
But his new-found happiness is shattered when the family home is gutted by fire and his loyalties are unexpectedly tested. Jade insists she saw a man in the house on the night of the fire; Natalie denies any knowledge of such an intruder.
Alex is faced with an impossible choice: to believe his wife or his daughter? And as Natalie’s story unravels, Alex realises that his wife has a past he had no idea about, a past that might yet catch up with her.
But this time, the past could be deadly . . .
Alex, Matalie and their daughter, Jade’s lives are thrown into turmoil after a fire at their home.
Jade was the only one who needed hospital treatment and her claims of a seeing man in the house before the fire are dismissed as a possible hallucination.
But Alex begins to wonder and so starts to search for the truth.
Told in two timelines, the past and present, this is a tale of secrets and obsession. It has a marvellously twisty and twisted plot that’s so well written, shocking, surprising and totally unputdownable.
