Description

The most dangerous lies are the ones we tell ourselves...

'Excellent . . . A gripping debut.' Sunday Times 'Taut, absorbing and psychologically astute.' Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train

Dr Ruth Hartland is the director of a highly respected trauma therapy unit. She is confident, capable and excellent at her job. But she is finding it hard to maintain.

Increasingly preoccupied by her son Tom's disappearance, Ruth is shaken when a new patient arrives at the unit - a young man who looks shockingly like him.

As a therapist, she knows exactly what she should do. But as a mother she makes a very different choice - a decision that will have profound consequences.

What readers are saying:

'The psychological pull of this novel was so intense, I flew through it in no time at all.'

'A heart-stopping mother's story of love and loss, and a riveting drama that lets us inside the secret world of therapist and patient.'

'A beautifully crafted book with a compelling and emotionally consuming narrative.'

'Brilliantly compassionate and satisfying read. Good to the last page.'
