Publisher's Summary

A weekend away deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in this suspenseful and compulsive debut psychological thriller.

Sometimes the only thing to fear...is yourself.

Leonora (Lee to some, Nora to others) is a reclusive writer, but when an old friend unexpectedly invites her to a weekend away in an eerie glass house, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But a haunting realization creeps in to the party: they are not alone in the woods.

Forty-eight hours later, Nora wakes up in a hospital bed with the knowledge that someone is dead. Wondering not “what happened?” but “what have I done?” she tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. In order to uncover secrets and reveal motives, Nora must revisit parts of herself that she’d rather leave buried where they belong: in the past.

In the vein of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl, this gripping thriller will have listeners on the edge of their seats until the very last sentence.

Meh ish

It was alright! An easy listen for sure but there are too few suspects for the final "who done it" to come as a shock, and the book seems to rely a lot on that final reveal. The character of Nora is annoying, and reading through her eyes the entire time is exhausting!

I really liked it!

Thrilling but sometimes long before getting to the obvious point. Good story but easy to guess.
