The perfect escape... or the perfect trap?

Two Weeks Ago: I woke up in a hotel room next to a dead man, with no memory of the night before. Panicked, I cleared up any trace that I was there and fled.

One Week Ago: I was offered the perfect escape: the chance to housesit a gorgeous villa in a remote corner of Italy. Desperate to get away, I jumped at the chance.

Now: The owners have unexpectedly shown up at the house. The only problem?
They're the family of the man I woke up next to, two weeks ago.

One of them knows my secret. And they've come to find me.

A totally gripping and addictive psychological thriller with a killer twist you will not see coming. Fans of K. L. Slater, Lisa Jewell and The Housemaid will be gripped from the very first page.
