What to expect

‘Haunting, dark and wonderfully atmospheric’ B A Paris, bestselling author of The Therapist

Once you let her in, she’ll never leave…

Abi Allerton is happily married. She lives in a beautiful Victorian semi that she and her husband Rohan have lovingly renovated. Her past is firmly behind her.

When her old university friend Grace gets back in touch, Abi is hesitant. Their friendship was intense and all-consuming. But with Rohan away for work, Abi could use some company, so she agrees to let Grace stay.

Before Abi realises her mistake, it’s too late. Grace is back to her old ways and Abi is losing grip on her calm, well-ordered life. Because Grace knows Abi’s secret – and she’ll never let her forget it.
