'Full of unpredictable twists' The Times.
She is outside your front door.
She got on the train after a difficult week at work. Her bag had been stolen, and with it, her identity. Her whole life was in there – passport, wallet, house key. When she tried to report the theft, her mind went blank. She couldn't even remember her name.
She says she lives in your house.
Now she's outside Tony and Laura's front door. She is certain she lives in their home. But they have never met her before.
Would you let her in?

A psychological thriller about a woman who can’t remember her name, she turns up at house in a small Wiltshire Village claiming she lives there. Her handbag, identity documents, keys and phone have been stolen. She remembers the house and the layout of the rooms but nothing recent. This book grabbed my interest from the start, it was about identity, memory loss, families, friendship, murder, revenge and grief.
This is not your typical amnesia thriller. If you think you know what's going on, keep reading, and you'll be pleasantly surprised. I liked the way we got insight into the lead detective's personal life, I liked the story idea, and I valued the depth of the message,
