'Superbly constructed . . . a breathtaking twist' Daily Mail

Childhood sweethearts William and Mary have been married for sixty years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife. Both have a strong sense of right and wrong.

This is what their son, Joe O'Loughlin, has always believed. But when Joe is summoned to the hospital with news that his father has been brutally attacked, his world is turned upside down. Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?

Against the advice of the police, Joe launches his own investigation. As he learns more, he discovers sides to his father he never knew - and is forcibly reminded that the truth comes at a price.

A mesmerising psychological thriller from one of the greatest crime writers of today, Michael Robotham, the internationally bestselling author of THE SECRETS SHE KEEPS.

Praise for Michael Robotham's writing:

'Will have you turning the pages compulsively' The Times

'Robotham doesn't just make me scared for his characters, he makes my heart ache for them' Linwood Barclay

'Superbly exciting ... a terrific read' Guardian

'A nerve-shredding thriller with the heart and soul so often missing from lesser crime and suspense novels. I couldn't stop reading, yet I didn't want Audie's story to end. Robotham is an absolute master' Stephen King on Life or Death

    A contrived novel with ridiculous story lines and characters. I pushed my way through this book hoping it would get better, get smarter. it doesn’t. Don’t waste your time or money. This book is not even decent “beach” reading.

    The book was very enjoyable and easy to read, I was actually wanting it to be longer. Lots of twists and turns with a mix of welcomed predictability and surprises. Really liked that it felt present day and thoroughly enjoyed the “Donald Trump” humor.
