Publisher's Summary

She was his.

She was perfect.

And then, she was gone.

An addictive and twisting psychological suspense, perfect for summer. If you liked My Lovely Wife, you’ll love this.

Alice has always been haunted by the women from her husband’s past. As an MP and now a TV personality, George Bell’s reputation as a ladies’ man precedes him. But when Alice falls pregnant, her unease becomes an obsession.

And there’s one ex in particular she can’t get out of her head: a beautiful student George dated in his first year, who went missing before they finished university. Ruth.

When Alice sees a woman who looks just like Ruth, she can’t shake the feeling that there’s more to her disappearance than George has been telling her. But does she really want to know what her husband has been getting up to behind her back all these years?

Critic Reviews

"In The Girl Before You, Nicola Rayner has written the new The Girl on the Train, although her novel also features note-perfect prose and an ending that will leave you gasping. So addictive, it should come with a health warning." (Observer)

"A tantalising and suspenseful mystery. Absolutely brilliant! I didn’t want it to end." (Lauren North, best-selling author of The Perfect Betrayal

"I adored this wonderfully assured debut. Nicola Rayner writes like a dream. An engrossing and emotionally honest thriller. Can't wait for her next book!" (Emma Curtis, best-selling author of One Little Mistake)

Most annoying narrator

I was interested in the storyline but the sing songy inflections of the narrator were horrible. Didn’t get past the first chapter.

Disappointing ending

Enjoyed the overall story, there was a build up for ages and it just ended! One of the most disappointing endings to a books I’ve read!
