What would you do if the man you love was accused of murder?

Bad things never happen to Charlotte. She's living the life she's always wanted and about to marry wealthy banker, Dan. But Dan's been hiding a secret, and the pressure is pushing him over the edge. After he's arrested for the vicious killing of a nightclub owner, Charlotte's future is shattered.

Then she opens her door to Keisha, an angry and frustrated stranger with a story to tell. Convinced of Dan's innocence, Charlotte must fight for him - even if it means destroying her perfect life. But what Keisha knows threatens everyone she loves, and puts her own life in danger.

DC Matthew Hegarty is riding high on the success of Dan's arrest. But he's finding it difficult to ignore his growing doubts as well as the beautiful and vulnerable Charlotte. Can he really risk it all for what's right?

Three stories. One truth. They all need to brace themselves for the fall.

Press Reviews

  • Peter James
    One of the very best novels I've read in a long while...astonishing, powerful and immensely satisfying
  • S J Bolton
    There is nothing not to like...a compelling and flawless thriller
  • Daily Mirror
    A cool and twisted debut
  • Daily Mail
    She knows how to tell a cracking story. She will go far
  • Guardian
  • Daily Telegraph
    It's crime-novel-meets-Hampstead-novel but without the contrivances of the former genre and the navel-gazing of the latter. Funny and perfectly paced, the pervading sense of "there but for the grace of God go you" chills you to the bone
  • Sharon Bolton

    There is nothing not to like . . . a compelling and flawless thriller
  • Guardian
    The characters are finely drawn, and it's concern for them, rather than for whodunnit, that provides the page-turning impetus in this promising debut
  • Irish Examiner
    Hugely impressive
  • Mark Edwards

    Highly original and compelling
