This debut suspense has an irresistible opening: Documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft finds a self-published novel on her and her husband’s nightstand. As she reads, the plot looks more and more like her own life—including the terrible secret she’s kept from her husband for twenty years. And in this version of the story, she ends up dead.
Knight is a screenwriter and it shows in the suspenseful, well-paced action. Advance reviews are great; rights have sold in twenty countries and Twentieth Century Fox bought the film rights. This one looks very promising.
“This unsettling psychological thriller about guilt and grief briskly moves to a shocking finale enhanced by its strong characters.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Knight’s elegant plot and compelling…characters keep the heart of the novel beating.… Atmospheric and twisting…a page-turner. An addictive psychological thriller.”
— Kirkus Reviews
“A thriller that truly thrills – characters who surprise and a plot with plenty of twists. One of the few books that reference S.J. Watson (Before I Go to Sleep) that actually live up to the expectation. A summer read not to be missed!”
–Amanda Kothe, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Cincinnati, OH
