'LOVED it. I read it in 3 hours in one sitting' Goodreads reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐


Rose has it all - the gorgeous children, the husband, the beautiful home. But then her best friend Polly comes to stay.

Very soon, Rose's cosy world starts to fall apart at the seams - her baby falls dangerously ill, her husband is distracted - is Polly behind it all?

It appears that once you invite Polly into your home, it's very difficult to get her out again...

The original psychological thriller: a dark, deliciously unsettling drama, perfect for fans of I Let You Go, The Couple Next Door and The Girl on the Train.

Readers LOVE Cuckoo!

    'Very enjoyable; expertly paced and very cleverly ambiguous'

    'A tale of slow-burning suspense...Crouch deftly avoids the obvious and builds up a very convincing air of menace in her extremely well-described portrait of family life becoming frayed at the edges with fatal results'
  • Heat
    'A brilliant debut novel...A totally compelling new novel about a woman who helps her best friend after she experiences a tragedy in her life...Gripping stuff...Cuckoo is a riveting and spooky story that keeps your eyes locked in the page and leaves you feeling shaken and out of sorts'
