Author(s): Renee Knight
THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER. Imagine if the next thriller you opened was all about you. "An addictive novel with shades of Gone Girl". (Sunday Times). When an intriguing novel appears on Catherine's bedside table, she curls up and begins to read. But as she turns the pages she is horrified to realize she is a key character, a main player. This story will reveal her darkest secret. A secret she thought no one else knew...
~ A thriller worthy of the name, this novel tells of a successful middle aged woman, Catherine, who discovers a mysterious book on her bedside table. As she reads it, she is shocked to discover the novel is about her and the events of one summer in Spain many years ago that she had tried to forget, and kept secret from everyone, even her husband. What follows is an unraveling of the life she has built as she becomes paranoid about the author of the book, and her secret coming to the light as the book begins to appear in the hands of her family and colleagues too. Another voice is introduced - the author's. He is an old man hell-bent on destroying the woman he blames for the death of his son years earlier. The novel switches between their two perspectives and captivates the reader in its chilling spiral downward. A clever and insightful read that shows things are not always as they seem. Jemma
