Publisher's Summary

A completely addictive and gripping psychological thriller

“There’s no place like home.” That’s what I tell myself as I pull another flawless meal from the oven. This perfect house on a quiet street was supposed to be my sanctuary, a place to recover. But everything changed the moment I saw that woman in the charity shop. She triggered something dark, buried deep within my memory....

Now I’ve started forgetting small things, like locking the front door.

And bigger things, like remembering to pick my little girl up from nursery.

I feel terrified every time I pass through a particular spot in our living room.

And sometimes, when I’m alone, I’m sure I can hear a baby crying....

I think the woman in the shop knows what happened to me. But if I can’t trust myself to believe she’s real, who will?

One of the most gripping and heart-pounding psychological thrillers you’ll ever listen to! If you were totally hooked by The Wife Between Us, The Girl on the Train, or The Woman in the Window, you won’t be able to turn this jaw-dropping thriller off until it’s finished.

Slow and unsatisfying

This is the first negative review I’ve ever written and I’m kind of nervous because all of the other reviews were so good. Here goes...

The story was very slow and clunky. Things didn’t start getting interesting until about 8 hours in. The supporting characters weren’t well developed so, when they did say something, it was obviously a clue to what was going on. There was really only one person that could be “bad guy” in this story of so, the big reveal had me rolling my eyes. There were no twists or turns. It just felt like a whole lot of nothing.

I say all of this with a heavy heart because I really enjoyed Valerie Keogh’s last book. I’m sure that the next one will be better.

Emma Newman slayed as always. I don’t know if I would have kept listening if she wasn’t narrating.

Whiny and dumb main character

You are meant to feel sorry for the main character, but it’s difficult since all she does is get drunk, do stupid things, believe anything she is told, blames everyone else and then cries about it. I sympathize more for everyone else in the story who had to be in her presence.

The story is okay, but I couldn’t finish it since the main character cannot accept blame and consequences for her actions and focuses on getting revenge on her husband, who wasn’t even the one behind everything. Super lame and stupid. Grow up and get a job, lady.
