A powerful thriller about a mother faced with an impossible choice, and the devastating consequences of her decision for years to come. Perfect for fans of APPLE TREE YARD, THE CHILD, I LET YOU GO, and the television drama NATIONAL TREASURE.

If your son was accused of murder, what would you do?

Your son has shown up in the middle of the night, with a scratch on his face, asking for help.

You find out he is wanted by the police for questioning in relation to a murder. The body of a young woman was discovered behind his house.

You've lied for him before, but you know he couldn't have killed someone.

Don't you?

This is the addictive psychological thriller that everyone is talking about. The Sunday Times called it 'chilling', while bestselling authors from Marian Keyes to Clare Mackintosh have all 'loved it'.
