The sensational new psychological thriller from the internationally bestselling author of The Girl Before

Trust me. Love me. Just don't believe me...

Claire Wright likes to play other people.

A British drama student, in New York without a green card, Claire takes the only job she can get: working for a firm of divorce lawyers, posing as an easy pick-up in hotel bars to entrap straying husbands.

When one of her targets becomes the subject of a murder investigation, the police ask Claire to use her acting skills to help lure their suspect into a confession.

But right from the start, she has doubts about the part she's being asked to play. Is Patrick Fogler really a killer... Or the only decent husband she's ever met? And is there more to this set-up than she's being told?

And that's when Claire realises she's playing the deadliest role of her life...
