The sensational new thriller from the author of the Richard & Judy bestseller Lie With Me.
A hot beach. A young family on holiday. A fatal moment of inattention...
And now Dave Jepsom is in their lives.
Dave Jepsom, with his muscles, his pale eyes, his expressionless face.
He saved their child. How can they ever repay him? Especially as what he seems to want in return is everything.
He's in the streets they walk down. He's at the office where they work. He's at their front door, leaning on the bell...
If only they could go back. Back to when the lies were still hidden. Before the holiday, before the beach, before the moment that changed everything.
But it's never how it starts that matters. It's always how it ends.
I loved it. Sabine Durrant skewers her characters' foibles with a merciless pen, combing page-turning tensionwith the blackest of black humour. I couldn't put it down
I opened the book after breakfast and looked up again at three, wondering where the day had gone. Sabine Durrant is a master at turning the secret anxieties everyone holds into page-turning, nail-biting drama.
Gripping, chilling, perfectly nuanced. No one does creepy moral ambiguity quite like Sabine Durrant
An assured, confident psychological thriller that is rich with menace. The tension and suspense tighten their grip so subtly you'll be holding your breath by the end.'
A seductive descent into paranoia and claustrophobia that coils around you like a snake and squeezes until you are breathless
A heart-thumping thriller about a dream family that suddenly finds itself living a nightmare. Sabine Durrant writes about the wrong turns that we can take, and the fragility of even the happiest life, and how all we love can slip from our grasp. Take Me In is smart, brilliant - and scary as hell
I absolutely loved it. Intriguing, compelling and ultimately surprising, it's a wonderful skewering of the middle classes and an astute examination of how a crisis can trigger unimagined consequences. A joy to read and full of delicio
