“So much atmosphere and tension…Gripping, tense and chillingly claustrophobic!”—Karen Hamilton, bestselling author of The Perfect Girlfriend

From the acclaimed author of The Exes’ Revenge comes a gripping thriller about a woman who desperately wants a fresh start—but discovers that the past has a way of catching up no matter how far or how fast you run…

The morning after a terrible storm, a woman calling herself Charlie Miller turns up in a remote coastal village. She’s bought a crumbling, long-vacant cottage and keeps to herself, reluctant to integrate with the locals—because if they ever find out who she really is, and what she’s done, she’ll lose what little she has left.

Charlie has a secret: she served two years in prison for providing a false alibi for a murderer. It was the mistake of a woman in love, a woman who couldn’t believe her boyfriend was guilty—or lying to her. All she wants now is to start over. But as Charlie slowly lets down her guard and becomes friendly with her neighbours, she can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching her…someone who knows what she did. When one of her new friends suddenly disappears, Charlie’s worst fears are confirmed. She must confront her past head-on, but as she knows all too well, people aren’t always who they appear to be—and you can’t always outrun your mistakes…
