The unputdownable new thriller from Mandy Byatt that will leave you reeling after the final twist…

She knows him better than anyone.
She doesn’t know him at all…

Lottie and Nick once had a dream marriage, but a series of failed IVF attempts has left Lottie feeling insecure, and her paranoia is further stoked by the arrival of a new starter at Nick’s firm. Nuala is the spitting image of a younger, more attractive Lottie, and Nick is paying her a lot of attention…

But then Lottie discovers she’s pregnant. A surprise getaway to their country cottage to celebrate Nick’s birthday will provide the perfect backdrop to give him the news and start to heal the rifts in their relationship.

Then, on the eve of Nick’s birthday, Lottie goes into the cellar, and what she finds makes her question everything.
Because there, in the corner of the cellar, is the body of a young woman.
A young woman who looks just like Lottie…

A gripping, suspenseful thriller with a killer twist you won’t see coming! Perfect for fans of Adele Parks and Liane Moriarty.

Oh wow! I absolutely devoured this book in one sitting, it’s a windy night here in Scotland, but the wind could not have been further from my mind as I gasp with each exciting twist, even that little one right at the very end! Everyone needs to read this book! It’s one of the best thrillers I’ve read in a long time.

This book is an absolute whirlwind of a thriller that will have you so ( wrongly) certain about what's going on..and won't let you put it down til you've finished it. The main characters Lottie and Nick draw you in to their easy relationship but unease starts to creep in quite quickly. The tension ramps up throughout the book- even the weather mirroring the twisty plot towards the end. There are lots of characters and several strands to this story which are cleverly woven together through time hops and reappearing settings. An absolute belter of a 2nd novel, a must read for 2023.
