'There's no doubt about it: Pomare is a master of the carefully constructed, impeccably paced psycho-thriller.' - The Australian
Psychologist Margot Scott has a picture-perfect life: a nice house in the suburbs, a husband, two children and a successful career.
On a warm spring morning Margot approaches one of her clients on a busy train platform. He is looking down at his phone, with his duffel bag in hand as the train approaches. That's when she slams into his back and he falls in front of the train.
Margot's clients all lie to her, but one lie cost her family and freedom.
A fast-paced psychological thriller for fans of The Silent Patient.
