'Hilary Norman's novels are some of the genre's scariest' Scotsman
Some people find it hard to trust Robin Allbeury, a wealthy lawyer and an expert on marital secrets, who runs an unorthodox sideline helping troubled wives escape from their abusive marriages.

'Genuinely scary . . . touches of sheer horror . . . a real page-turner' Daily Telegraph
