Ian Rankin, Guardian Books of the Year 'Absorbing, beautifully written' The Times, Crime Books of the Year 'Every bit as amazing as her first two [novels]' Lisa Jewell IBA Crime Fiction Book of the Year Winner 2018 From the No 1 bestselling author of Richard and Judy Book Club pick, Lying in Wait 'I could probably have been an actress. It is not difficult to pretend to be somebody else. Isn't that what I've been doing for most of my life?' Cordelia Russell has been living on the French Riviera for twenty-five years, passing herself off as an English socialite. But her luck, and the kindness of strangers, have run out. The arrival of a visitor from her distant past shocks Cordelia. She reacts violently to the intrusion and flees her flat to spend a drunken night at a glittering party. As dawn breaks she stumbles home through the back streets. Even before she opens her door she can hear the flies buzzing. She did not expect the corpse inside to start decomposing quite so quickly . . . 'The finest psychological thriller writer currently at work' Tammy Cohen 'Dark, brutal and brilliant' Colette McBeth 'Dazzling ... chilling, mesmerising and, ultimately, devastating. Pure storytelling genius' Mark Edwards
