Un grande thriller
Dall'autrice del bestseller La maestra bugiarda
Tutti hanno qualcosa da nascondere
Ava, Matt e la loro figlioletta Abi vivono in un quartiere tranquillo e sicuro, circondati da vicini amichevoli.
Una mattina, Ava si allontana per pochi minuti, lasciando la figlia da sola in cucina, ben assicurata al passeggino. Al suo ritorno, Abi è scomparsa: la porta d’ingresso è aperta e il passeggino è vuoto.
La bambina sembra davvero sparita e di lei non si saprà più nulla.
Un anno dopo, Ava vive ancora nella morsa del senso di colpa e dell’angoscia. Per scuoterla, il marito cerca di convincerla a partecipare all’inaugurazione della nuova casa dei Lovegood, i loro vicini. Ava non vorrebbe andare, perché non sopporta l’idea di trascorrere del tempo con persone che non condividono il suo dolore, ma finisce per cedere: Matt è preoccupato per lei e forse una serata fuori le farà bene.
Alla festa però, mentre gli amici chiacchierano amabilmente tra un brindisi e l’altro, Ava origlia un commento che non avrebbe dovuto sentire, una frase detta a bassa voce che mette in discussione tutto ciò che sa sulla scomparsa di sua figlia.
Pensava di aver ricostruito ogni dettaglio di quel giorno maledetto. Si sbagliava…

Alcune verità possono diventare una prigione
Sono passati più di trent’anni da quando Nicola Watson ha lasciato la sua bella casa nel quartiere in cui viveva con i genitori e il fratello maggiore.
Aveva solo dieci anni ma era sufficiente il rumore della macchina di suo padre nel vialetto per farle stringere lo stomaco dalla paura. Allora era troppo piccola per capire perché la balbuzie del fratello continuasse a peggiorare… La notte in cui sua madre Carol la portò via, con gli occhi spalancati dal terrore, è ormai un vaghissimo ricordo… Adesso Nicola è un avvocato di successo e si è lasciata alle spalle la sua inquietante infanzia. Fino al giorno in cui, per il funerale della madre, si trova ad affrontare il senso di colpa verso la donna che ha sacrificato tutto per i suoi figli. Una volta riemersi, i ricordi sono difficili da ricacciare indietro e Nicola si convince di avere avuto un ruolo negli eventi che hanno portato suo fratello in prigione per omicidio. Che cosa è accaduto veramente più di trent’anni prima?

Everyone is going to the housewarming party. All the same people who lived on the street the day Abi vanished… Will her mother finally learn the truth?
Ava only left her daughter in the pushchair for five minutes. The buckle was fastened, and she was sure it was safe. But when she came downstairs, the door was open and Abi was gone – she walked down the road, past the Lovegoods’ house, and was never seen again.
A year later, the Lovegoods are planning their long-anticipated housewarming party. Ava doesn’t want to go. She can’t bear to look down that end of the road, to see the place where Abi vanished, and she doesn’t want to spend time with people who don’t share her grief. Her husband Matt persuades her: he’s worried about her. A night out might do her good.
But as her friends and neighbours chat, and the drink and gossip flows, Ava learns something new about the day she has re-lived a thousand times. A throwaway comment which could change everything.
Ava thought she knew every last detail of that day.
She’s about to find out she was wrong…

She bursts into my life like a storm, and nothing is the same again. She seems so perfect, with her lilting laugh and her beautiful face. One by one, I watch as my friends fall under her spell.
Only I seem to suspect something. Only I see that her smiles don’t reach her cold, furious eyes. And when I’m accused of things I didn’t do, when my home is vandalized, I know she’s behind it. But she only lets her mask slip when no one is looking, so if I say anything, I’ll look crazy.
So when the baby shower comes around I’m there, sitting on a velvet sofa in a posh hotel room, surrounded by balloons. We share gifts, we pour small glasses of champagne, and she beams, her bump just visible under her bright red shirt.
But that afternoon, I finally learn the unbelievable truth.

The truth can set you free, or make you a prisoner…
Thirty years ago, Nicola Watson lived with her parents and older brother in a respectable suburb. At ten years old, she didn’t yet understand why her stomach tightened when she heard her father’s heavy tread as he returned home late at night, or why it made her brother Graham’s stammer get worse, or why one night her mother Carol woke them both, wide-eyed and whispering, and took them out of their home and into the unknown.
Now a successful lawyer in the city, with a life poles apart from her dark beginnings, Nicola has returned home for her mother’s funeral. But as she stands in her mother’s house, remembering the woman who sacrificed everything for her children, Nicola has to confront the guilt that she feels for leaving her family behind. And the belief that she played a part in the events that led to her brother going to prison for murder.
All Carol wanted was to protect her children, but escaping her husband was only the beginning of the story. And when Nicola learns the truth of what her mother did, it will change everything she thought she knew about herself and her family.
A gripping, emotional story of family secrets, and the strength of a mother’s love in the darkest times from the Amazon number one bestselling author. The next powerful read for fans of The Silent Wife, Kerry Lonsdale and Emily Bleeker.

The night she moves in with Peter, she’s so happy, so exhilarated, so in love. Later, she will remember a much smaller feeling, a tiny one percent in her gut. And she will remember pushing that feeling aside…
Samantha Frayn doesn’t know why Peter Bridges picks her – a nobody with bitten fingernails and a troubled childhood behind her – but she falls quickly. He’s older, charming, likes fine wine and French films, and his beautiful home has real art on its walls.
Peter transforms Samantha’s life in an instant. He sees the better version of herself – the one she’s always wanted to be. It’s only normal that there’s a little friction, when she moves in, over domestic matters like where things are kept, or the proper times to eat, sleep and shower. She’s lucky to be with someone who can help her find a new job, move on from childish friends, and speak with greater sophistication.
But as Samantha notices, more and more, Peter’s temper, she starts to wonder if there might be consequences to breaking the rules of the world he has so quickly built around her.
And then she receives an anonymous note that makes her ask: is she the first woman to feel trapped by Peter? Is she being paranoid, manipulated, or could she be in danger?
You can tell the truth about your life, but someone needs to be listening. Someone needs to trust you. And someone needs to save you from the man you thought you loved.
