Un grande thriller
Lui non è l’uomo che pensavi di aver sposato…
Quando Alice Gill vede apparire nel test di gravidanza una piccola linea blu, è al culmine della gioia.
Ma la sua felicità viene ben presto interrotta: la polizia bussa alla porta pochi minuti dopo, con una notizia devastante. Suo marito, Dominic, è morto. Sconvolta, Alice va a identificare il corpo. Non ci sono dubbi, è rimasta vedova. Ma quando il fratello di lui, tornato dall’estero, raggiunge l’obitorio per vedere la bara, insiste che non si tratta di Dominic Gill. Quello che giace lì davanti a loro non è suo fratello. Allora chi è l’uomo che Alison ha sposato? I segreti che si è portato nella tomba metteranno in pericolo anche la sua vita?
Conosci davvero la persona che hai sposato?
