How can you hide your affair when your lover's been murdered? From the mind of a psychologist, and the author of The Therapist, comes a gripping story of secrets, lies, extramarital affairs and murder. A wonderful storyteller Chris Whitaker Is it worse to lie to your husband or t...he police? Rikke is deceiving them both. When their upstairs neighbour Jorgen is found dead, she's questioned alongside her husband Asmund. How can Rikke admit in front of Asmund that Jorgen and she were having an affair? Or explain to the police the complexity of her feelings for Jorgen? The hint of relief that he's dead. And, as the investigation closes in on the neighbourhood, how long can she conceal the affair from her neighbours, her husband and her teenage daughter? Rikke knows she can't hide the phone calls, emails and messages from the police. So she cuts herself a deal. In return for a few days' grace to tell Asmund before anyone else does, she'll share everything about the affair. But before she can summon the courage to confess, Rikke is struck by a chilling revelation. Jorgen can only have been killed by someone living in their small apartment building.
