She closes her eyes and tries to remember the last thing she said to Celia. She thinks it was ‘I don’t ever want to see you again’.

For fans of THE SILENT WIFE and BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP comes a gripping domestic psychological debut.

Dana Catrell wakes from a drunken stupor to find that her neighbour, Celia, has been brutally murdered in her own home. But Dana was at Celia’s house only a few hours ago. Celia wanted to show her a photo – a photo of Dana’s husband with another woman – and Dana has blank spots of what happened to the rest of the afternoon . . .

This is a thriller that makes the reader question everything. Dana, we learn, has a history of mental illness and as she descends into another manic episode, the line between what actually happened and what she has imagined becomes blurred.
