‘Gripped my throat and didn’t let go until the final sentence’ – CAROLINE ENGLAND
‘A slow-burn thriller, both horrifying and touching. Compelling’ – CATHERINE COOPER
‘A heart-stopping rollercoaster of a read’ – J.M. HEWITT


A nightmare jolts Debs awake. She leaves the kids tucked up in their beds and goes downstairs. There’s a man in her kitchen, holding a knife. But it’s not an intruder. This is her husband Marc, the father of her children. A man she no longer recognises.

Once their differences were what drew them together, what turned them on. Him, the ex-army officer from a good family. Her, the fitness instructor who grew up over a pub. But now these differences grate to the point of drawing blood. Marc screams in his sleep. And Debs hardly knows the person she’s become, or why she lets him hurt her.

Neither of them is completely innocent. Neither is totally guilty. Marc is taller, stronger, and more vicious, haunted by a war he can’t forget. But he has no idea what Debs is capable of when her children’s lives are at stake…

A completely addictive story of a relationship built on passion, poisoned by secrets and violence. Perfect for readers of Blood Orange and Big Little Lies.

Publisher Review

A slow-burn thriller which is both horrifying and touching but also manages touches of humour. Compelling -- Catherine Cooper, author of The Chalet This exquisitely dark, disturbing and explosive thriller gripped my throat and didn't let go until the final, searing sentence -- Caroline England, author of My Husband's Lies A brilliantly written psychological thriller, its twists and turns executed with devastating precision. Everyone *needs* to read this -- Janice Hallett, author of The Appeal What I love most is the prodigious humanity Tina Baker manages to heap into her characters. She dares you to make judgements, delighting as you trip over your own assumptions. Every sentence is splinter-sharp, making the whole thing sing like the edge of an unsheathed knife -- Kate Simants, author of A Ruined Girl A pacy, heart-stopping, brutal yet humorous roller coaster of a read -- J.M. Hewitt, author of The Life She Wants I couldn't put it down from the first page to the last ... a whirlwind of emotions. Compulsive and tense -- Louise Mullins, author of I Know You
