Description

Family secrets, revenge, and righteous fury collide in an international bestselling novel of psychological suspense and intrigue.

Clara and Henrik are married and living in a beautiful inherited villa in Oslo. She is a single-mindedly ambitious child-rights activist at the Ministry of Justice. Having grown up in rural Western Norway, she is also an Oslo outsider. Henrik is a doctor from a well-to-do Oslo family. Though their marriage is under serious strain, they share a devotion to their twin sons and their work. Outwardly, they’re a successful couple both dedicated to saving lives.

Then a Pakistani Norwegian child is admitted to Henrik’s hospital and dies in his care. The boy had clearly been the victim of child abuse. Soon after, a related murder rocks the city. It won’t be the last. The events unearth years of trauma, secrets, and buried resentments at the heart of Clara and Henrik’s fragile marriage.

Little by little, in the wake of these shattering crimes, the veneer of normalcy begins to fall away. But even then, nothing is as it appears.

Family secrets, revenge, and righteous fury collide in an international bestselling novel of psychological suspense and intrigue.

“A refreshingly different kind of thriller. The story is riveting, the plot artful, with constant twists and surprises and a serious underlying theme. I devoured the book in two evenings, but the characters are still with me…” —Maja Lunde, internationally bestselling author of The History of Bees
