Anna wants to escape.
She doesn’t know when her marriage to James began to feel like a trap or when he became so controlling. All she knows is that she needs to leave before it’s too late.
And she has a plan.
When Anna reconnects with her childhood sweetheart, Sam, she sees it as the answer to her problems. Finally, they’ll have a life together, like they’d always planned – the life she was meant to have.
But the lies are catching up with her . . .
On the morning of their escape, Sam goes missing. Anna knows he wouldn’t leave her, that something must have happened to him.
Her search for answers will force her to confront her past, something that she has been running from for a very long time . . .
I thought I had read some pretty good debut novels but this one has topped the post on all of them. This is how a psychological should be done, powerful characters and webs of lies, secrets and betrayals make for a outstanding thriller of a read. I didn’t know how this story was going to be played out with all the twists and turns but it did and it blew my mind. Even though the main character for me was Anna, I felt as though there was two stories running alongside each other, the one with Anna’s husband James and also her childhood sweetheart Sam, they come together in an explosive climax that will have you on the edge of your seat. I am really looking forward to what Sophie writes next as I feel this book is going to be a big hit.
