Start reading this book in the keen anticipation that it will keep you gripped and wondering about just about every character until its chilling denouement.
Tara is the main character, and she lives in a South London cul-de-sac with her husband Noah, teenaged daughter Sophie and son Spencer (11). One night, when her husband is away on business, she pops in to speak to her neighbour, and ends up having a drink with the neighbour's husband. The next thing she knows, she is waking up in her neighbour's bed, next to Lee - who is dead - with no memory of how this came to pass but certain she had not had enough to drink to explain this lapse. Shocked, she makes her escape from the house and begins the switchback journey to make sense of what happened, initially deciding not to go to the police. There are plenty of shocks and surprises along the way and Tara's trust in all of her family is challenged to the extreme.
