Publisher's Summary

You wake up to find the man beside you is dead. He is not your husband. This is not your bed.

Tara Logan adores her perfect little family: husband, Noah, and two children, teenager Rosie and 11-year-old Spencer. But her happiness is shattered when she wakes in her neighbour Lee Jacobs' bed, with no memory of how she got there or what happened between them. And worse - he has been stabbed to death.

Convinced she didn't kill Lee, Tara flees home and stays silent, holding her breath as the investigation grips the neighbourhood. But as her daughter spirals out of control and her husband becomes increasingly distant, Tara starts to wonder if someone in her own life knows what really happened that night. And when the police turn their questions towards her, Tara realises she has to find out.

But what will it take to uncover the real story, and can she survive the truth? A gripping, shocking psychological thriller, with a twist that will take you by surprise.

What the Critics Say

"A hell of a ride. By the time I reached the nail-biting conclusion I was a nervous wreck, the ending has left me speechless...one of my top reads of 2016. Five stars out of five from me. (I would rate it higher if I could)." (The Book Review Cafe)

    "Long wait to find out who dunnit"

    This story could've been told in 3 hours rather than 9 long drawn out wasted hours of my life I will never get back. Narration was great story line ok, ending ok, but too long with little meat

    The story is told well and there are many twists and turns enough to throw you off the scent.

    "A Lot Going On!"

    90% really good, 10% completely implausible. Good characters and interesting twists and turns with just a couple of twists too many. I rolled my eyes a few times at the end, but I enjoyed it.

    twist was mediocre and took forever to get to the point. I really didn't want to finish it but did so I wouldn't waste my spent credit.

    Story
    "Strange Characters"

    I, for one, would have had a totally different reaction to some of the things the main character encounters. She was very soft and didn't stand up to herself. The suspense wasn't really there and it all came to a really quick end.

    The narrator was a little slow paced for me.

    What I did like is the dynamic of the family. I hate when I read a book where everyone is just hanging out at home all the time. All characters within the family had realistic lives, schedules, and interactions with each other.

    Maybe I'm too kick ass but starting in the second chapter, I would have started punching folks.

    "Awful, slow, soulless and so far fetched."

    Don't waste your money on this one. its more like family drama than a psychological thriller. no thrills here, just a soulless book and another author trying to make money after a one hit wonder!

    Story
    "Very much a run of the mill domestic murder mystery"

    The real mystery of the story, how the murder was actually accomplished is never properly addressed. I won't spoil the plot by going into detail on this. It is quite a silly story told in a humdrum manner. Narration is basic but doesn't either add or detract from the overall effect.

    Didn't like the performances at all. Really ruined the overall enjoyment. Story just lacks something. Main character hypocritical and annoying at times. Possibly better to read than listen to

    Always like a British murder mystery.

    Great performance! The pace of the story fluctuated so I found it slow at times.

    All in all it's a good listen.
