‘A rival to Gone Girl for its addictive, twisted plot.’ STYLIST

Lexie’s got the perfect life. And someone else wants it…

Lexie loves her home. She feels safe and secure in it – and loved, thanks to her boyfriend Tom.

But recently, something’s not been quite right. A book out of place. A wardrobe door left open. A set of keys going missing…

Tom thinks Lexie’s going mad – but then, he’s away more often than he’s at home nowadays, so he wouldn’t understand.

Because Lexie isn’t losing it. She knows there’s someone out there watching her. And, deep down, she knows there’s nothing she can do to make them stop…

A compelling, heart-racing thriller that will have you looking over your shoulder long after you turn the last page. The perfect read for fans of Louise Candlish and Adele Parks.

    What a book!!!! It is so accurate of today's society and is so insightful into the jealous minds of women and how what we presume and see from outside could b per totally different to what's actually happening... I couldn't stop reading. This is one very talented author thank you!!!!

    I loved this book! The storyline slowly builds until it reaches a a truly horrifying section where you’re hoping and praying the worst doesn’t happen... The two main characters in this book are both so believable and have experienced and are experiencing unpalatable things going on in their lives which many readers will relate in part to. If you take time to read the Acknowledgements at the end of the book you will understand why the author has written certain areas of the story with such a deep knowledge and understanding. A thoroughly well written and thought provoking debut book.
  • Absolutely loved it!
