About The Book

Your life is in danger – and the death threats are coming from someone close to you. But who? 
Someone in your family is lying to you.

Francesca was widowed a year ago. Since then she has focused on her children, trying to soothe their grief as well as her own. Her husband and father never quite saw eye to eye but no one could have cared more for her in the past year than her close-knit family. Finally, she feels she might be ready to move on with life.

Until she is contacted out of the blue by someone who says he must get information to her. That her husband's death wasn't what it seemed. And that her family know more than they say .... 

Who can Francesca trust? And what will happen to her if she puts her faith in the wrong person?

The brilliant new novel from the author of Close My Eyes, a Richard & Judy Book Club pick. If you loved Apple Tree Yard, The Girl on the Train or I See You, make Sophie McKenzie your next gripping read.
