About the Book

‘He's the real deal...' JOE HILL

‘Another read in one sitting from the best-selling Swanson.’ METRO

‘A brilliantly original premise, delivered with panache.’ CLARE MACKINTOSH

On the eve of his college graduation, Harry is called home by his step-mother Alice, to their house on the Maine coast, following the unexpected death of his father.

But who really is Alice, his father's much younger second wife? In a brilliant split narrative, Peter Swanson teases out the stories and damage that lie in her past. And as her story entwines with Harry’s in the present, things grow increasingly dark and threatening - will Harry be able to see any of it clearly through his own confused feelings?

  • Peter Swanson

    Peter Swanson's debut novel, The Girl With a Clock for a Heart (2014), was described by Dennis Lehane as 'a twisty, sexy, electric thrill ride' and was nominated for the LA Times book award. His follow up The Kind Worth Killing (2015), a Richard and Judy pick, was shortlisted for the Ian Fleming Silver Dagger, was named the iBook stores Thriller of the Year and was a top ten paperback bestseller. He lives with his wife and cat in Somerville, Massachusetts. His third novel, Her Every Fear, will be published in early 2016.

“'Crammed with twists, turns and duplicity galore, Swanson’s fiendishly clever thriller gets the brain cells ticking over nicely...The narrative, split between Harry’s present and Alice’s salacious past, soars to a nerve-shredding finale that will leave you gasping.'”
- Saga
“‘This gripping novel can be devoured in one sitting.’”
- The Sunday Post
