‘Nobody writes psychopaths like Swanson.’ MARK EDWARDS

When private detective and former cop Henry Kimball is hired to investigate a cheating husband, he senses all is not quite what it seems, and before he knows it he’s gotten far too close to the other woman.

As the case rapidly gets ever more dangerous, he’s forced to turn to the only person he can trust, the sociopathic Lily Kintner, the woman who once stabbed him, but with whom he shares a peculiar bond.

‘Swanson has made me fall in love with plot twists again.’ DOUG JOHNSTONE

Peter Swanson is a master at sticking knifes into familiar tropes and then giving them a twist, and
his latest is a twin narrative page-turner of the highest order.

Crack Magazine

Peter Swanson is an author that excels in adding twisty layers into his stories that has the reader riveted and unable to tear themselves away. Nothing is straightforward or as it seems and it had me on edge throughout. A master storyteller!
