He said it was consensual.
The woman said nothing.
But Laura saw it...
... didn't she?
In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura and Kit interrupt something awful.
Laura is sure about what happened. Later, in a panic, she tells a little white lie - and four lives are changed irreparably.
When the victim turns up on their doorstep, her gratitude spills into dangerous obsession. Laura and Kit decide to run - but Beth knows they have pledged to see every eclipse together. They will never be able to entirely escape her.
As the next eclipse draws near, Laura must confront the fallout from what she saw in the darkness. Confessing will cost her marriage; keeping the secret might prove fatal.
But all secrets, sooner or later, will come to light.
Tense, beautifully written and with a real gut-punch of a twist - Claire McGowan
Not just a tense psychological drama but a meditation on the complex view. Kelly brilliantly uses the eclipse as metaphor, exploring the fact that though we long for black and white, the partial view is all we ever get. Dive in. - Susie Steiner
Twisted, atmospheric and perfectly plotted. Her best yet. - Jenny Blackhurst
Kelly proves herself (once again) a mistress of the dark arts of psychological thriller writing with sinuous storytelling that beguiles and entraps the reader. Lingers in the mind long after the final page. Set to be the psych thriller of 2017 - Anya Lipska
Fantastic... a real tour de force, with characters I won't forget any time soon - Kate Rhodes
