Paige stands by her husband, but doubts creep in. Is Cara telling the truth? Or is this all part of her dangerous game?
Then Cara Morton disappears without a trace.
Paige knows her husband can keep secrets. She’s keeping dark secrets of her own. But is he a killer? The police seem to think so. But they don’t know Cara. They don’t know about her past. They don’t know what she’s capable of…
A twisty and completely unputdownable page-turner that will keep you up all night. Perfect for fans of The Housemaid, The Perfect Marriage and The Wife Between Us.
