Publisher's Summary

I cast my eyes over the impressive meal I’ve cooked and the half-empty crystal wine glasses. As our guests smile graciously, I squeeze my husband’s shoulder. It’s vital I get his friends to like me. To believe this version of me. Because I’ll do anything to stop them learning the truth…

Ever since I met my handsome husband Dr Gabe Bonneville, I started playing the role of the perfect housewife. He works hard as a surgeon, so I look after our home, and throw elaborate dinner parties with champagne cocktails for his best friends Hugh and Anita. He’s my safe place and my chance to have the family I’ve always wanted.

I’ve managed to hide the mornings when I wake up and see a face in the shadows. I haven’t told Gabe the truth about the woman who raised me, or told him about the therapy I’ve been getting so my secrets stay hidden in the dark. I haven’t questioned his past so he doesn’t ask about mine. I see the way Anita looks at him sometimes, but I’ll never say a word.

Until the letter arrives at the front door. The beautiful, expensive card shakes in my hand as I read the neat black handwriting.

Someone knows I’m not just a housewife. And the lies I’ve told will be all that’s left when I disappear…

I love Dan Riley

I am sad that the series is done and I've heard all 7 books now. I've come to look forward to his antics and backstories.

James Lailey is a national treasure

Weatherly has outdone herself, again! It’s a great story with lots of unexpected turns and great character development. Narrator James Lailey brings every character to life. Weatherly and Lailey are an excellent pairing.

Weatherly made it great again

I enjoy this book very much. This is nit the first book by Weatherly which I’ve listened. And every time it’s a great pleasure. Especially I want to mention a narrator - James Lalley. He is incredible talented he brings so much joy to the book. Highly recommend

Wow!!!

Great book and so intriguing and very unusual story. Kept me glued to listen. I loved all the suspense and thrill of the story unfolding beautifully written and as usual not disappointed by this great author.
The narration was good too.
I would definitely use a credit on it but so happy and grateful that it was included in Audible Plus for me.

The story was very captivating. Once you got into it, you didn't want to put it down.

Took a little while to catch on, but when you did it wasn't very good thriller.
Enjoy listening.

Anna-Lou does it again!

Brilliant. Fascinating how the story is brought together and wrapped up! It was a bit predictable but that didn’t matter to me because I needed to know how and why! Loved the book and the performance!
