But when they’re invited over for dinner, Hen thinks she sees something suspicious in Matthew’s study.
Could this mild-mannered schoolteacher really be hiding a dark secret, one that only Hen might know about? And even if she’s right, who would believe her?
Deliciously good – dry, intelligent, perfectly paced, there is more than a touch of the Barbara Vines ... This is Swanson’s best thriller yet.
Spot on ... fans of his previous bestsellers won't be disappointed.
So smart and exciting ... Brian de Palma, or Hitchcock, were he still alive, would kill for the film rights.

Compelling, creepy, and psychologically astute, this is stylish thriller writing at its very best.
