Publisher's Summary

When Probation Officer Cate Austin is given her new assignment, she faces the highest-profile case of her career. Alice Mariani is charged with assisted suicide, and Cate must recommend a sentence. Alice insists her story is one of misinterpreted love, forcing those around her to analyse their own lives.

Who is to decide what is normal, and when does loyalty turn to obsession? Investigating the loophole that lies between murder and euthanasia, Cate must now meet the woman who agreed to comply with her lover’s final request. Shocking revelations expose bitter truths that can no longer be ignored.

Critic Reviews

"An enthralling psychological thriller - perfect for fans of Sophie Hannah." (Best-selling author Sam Mills)
"This novel is an extremely addictive debut - a real page-turner.... As a debut novel, this is a remarkably assured and well-written book." (Petrona)
