8 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Thriller / suspense

The unforgettable, explosive new thriller from internationally bestselling author Jo Spain, split between the Caribbean, London and Ireland.

It was the perfect honeymoon . . . until she confessed to murder

For one week, everything in Luke Miller's life is perfect. Surprised with a belated honeymoon by his wife, Rose, he's had seven days with her in a Caribbean paradise.

But then Rose confesses that on the day they left, a violent man from her past tracked her down and broke into their home. He wasn't expecting her to fight back. In her terror, Rose killed him. Now there's a dead body in his apartment, and only one person Luke can think to turn to.

Mickey never expected to hear from Luke again, not after he disappeared without warning. Mickey can't deny a woman who needs help. Luke trusts her to make sure Rose doesn't have to keep running.

But it turns out, some lies are too big to run from.
