Audible Editor Reviews

Ruth Dugdall's disquieting psychological thriller delves into the depths of human need with her study of the intelligent and disturbed Rose Willks. Informed by the author's experience as a probation officer, The Woman Before Me's suspense is hypnotic and its twists are sure to surprise.

Susannah Tyrrell, with her own background in psychology, has a voice soothing and warm, drawing the ear to the novel's provocative portrayal of motherhood and adding a haunting sympathy to a character who may or may not deserve it, but reveals with her secrets how our pasts shape our future.

Publisher's Summary

"They came for me, just like I knew they would."

Luke had been dead for just three days. Rose Wilks' life is shattered when her newborn baby, Joel, is admitted to intensive care. Emma Hatcher has all that Rose lacks. Beauty. A loving husband. A healthy son. Until tragedy strikes and Rose is the only suspect. Now, having spent nearly five years behind bars, Rose is just weeks away from freedom. Her probation officer, Cate, must decide whether Rose is remorseful for Luke s death, or whether she remains a threat to society. As Cate is drawn in, she begins to doubt her own judgement. Where is the line between love and obsession, can justice be served and, if so...by what means?
