Publisher's summary

One evening as the sun is setting, Amelia Madison’s car slides into the sea off Mason’s Pier. Her body is never found.

Two years later, Elena Langdon meets Nicholas Madison. She is grieving the loss of her mother, he is grieving for his wife. Together, they can help each other.

Now, Elena is living with Nicholas. But Elena doesn’t really know him. She doesn’t know what he is capable of. And she doesn’t know what really happened to Amelia.

Until the day she discovers the torn page of a letter and the words she reads chill her to the bone.

Elena must find the person who wrote these letters if she is to save herself.

A totally breathtaking pause-resister about the darker side of love and what really goes on behind closed doors. This audiobook will have you gripped from the very first moment until the dramatic final twist.

Critic reviews

"Entertaining and highly thought-provoking." (Closer Magazine)

"This page-turner is gripping, all the more because it presents the dilemmas of betrayal with brutal honesty." (Irish Independent)

"This well-crafted and compelling story traces the deceits which begin unnoticed but end in the destruction of friendships and lives." (The Irish Times)

Jumping Genres

Started as a better-than-average Evil Husband thriller, evolved into something nicely twisty that kept me listening closely. Then the ending took a flying leap into another genre, but I think maybe the author pulled it off. Maybe. Still scratching my head. Michele Moran reads wonderfully as always.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
