On a Tuesday in May, in her thirty-fifth year, Rachel shot her husband dead. He stumbled backward with an odd look of confirmation on his face, as if some part of him had always known she'd do it.
Rachel's husband adores her. When she hit rock bottom, he was there with her every step of the way as she slowly regained her confidence, and her sanity. But his mysterious behaviour forces her to probe for the truth about her beloved husband.
How can she feel certain that she ever knew him?
And was she right to ever trust him?

Hitchcockian... with characteristically twisty action and crackling dialogue (Mark Lawson, the Guardian's Best Crime Books and Thrillers of 2017)

Complex, tense, compelling, and an emotional and strategic hall of mirrors, where nothing is what it seems - but I would follow Dennis Lehane anywhere (Lee Child)

One of the outstanding crime novelists of this century . . . absorbing . . . demonstrating a psychological depth and sensitivity (The Times)

terrific . . . a crime writer fully the equal of more ostensibly literary authors (Evening Standard)

Sharply different . . . [Lehane] remains one of the great, diabolical thriller kings who seems intimately acquainted with darkness and can make it seep from the page of screen (New York Times)

Acclaimed Lehane is at the top of his game with this multi-layered story of a troubled woman who begins to mistrust her perfect husband. The plot oozes tension and the brilliant writing makes this a thriller to lose yourself in (Sunday Mirror)

Combines pulp thrills with literary heart and sophistication (Entertainment Weekly)

Lehane, is, as ever, a graceful writer, observant of the world that shapes his characters' lives (The Washington Post)

With sharply acute characterisation, this is classic Lehane (Guardian)

A riveting thriller . . . Lehane's prose knocks most of his crime-writing contemporaries into a cocked hat, and I gulped his novel down with enormous pleasure (Daily Telegraph)
