A tense, gripping psychological thriller, with Hitchcockian overtones, perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, Sophie Hannah and Rosamund Lupton. Lara Finch is living a lie.

Author's Bio

Emily Barr is the well-loved and bestselling author of Backpack, the original backpacking novel, and many other highly acclaimed novels. A former journalist, she has travelled around the world and written columns and travel pieces for the Observer and the Guardian. After living in France, Emily and her husband (whom she met backpacking) have settled in Cornwall with their three children. Born in Scotland and raised in England, Imogen trained as an actress at the Drama Centre London under Christopher Fettes, Yat Malmgren and Reuven Adiv. Since graduating, she has worked extensively in theatre, film, commercials and sketch comedy, and regularly as a voice artist. She also spent several years underground enjoying success as a deliciously naughty cabaret artiste, making people laugh and generally being rude. Audible is a seller and producer of spoken audio entertainment, information, and educational programming on the Internet.
