What to expect
Perfect for fans of T.M. Logan’s The Catch and The Couple at No. 9 by Claire Douglas.
‘This taut, elegant thriller thrums with dark menace and dread. I couldn’t look away’ Kate Riordan, bestselling author of The Heatwave
Olivia and Julian are enjoying lazy days in their Spanish villa, a well deserved break from their busy lives. Especially for Julian, who after a lifetime as a carer was thrust into the public eye following the tragic murder of his first wife.
The languid heat and peace of the villa is broken only by clifftop walks, sun drenched lunches and cooling swims. Until a chance encounter with Gabriel – an attractive man, many years their junior – changes everything.
Soon their idyllic break turns into a dangerous, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse. Will any of them get out alive?
