    DescriptionA family near breaking point hire a nanny with secrets of her own in this gripping novel from an exciting new talent. On the surface, Ruth and Christian seem like an ordinary working couple with two kids - and a home in chaos. As the cracks in their marriage widen, they decide to get their very own super-nanny, Aggie. Quietly efficient, she brings calm and order, and the children adore her. But why is Aggie so eager to gain their trust? Is there something sinister about her efforts to create the perfect family? And what is she really doing in their home? 'Everything and Nothing' builds to a mesmerising climax in a story that is, at its heart, about thwarted and damaged love.

    Review quote
    'Unputdownable...chillingly well-drawn' Sophie Hannah 'An assured debut takes the Mary Poppins myth and turns it into a menacing tale of the enemy invited in...What makes this smartly written first novel so disturbing is its moral ambiguity' Daisy Goodwin, The Sunday Times 'A suspenseful and emotive examination of a family in meltdown...It's a skilfully executed debut novel that nestles perfectly alongside the dark, nuanced psychological thrills of Daphne du Maurier and Sophie Hannah' Waterstones Books Quarterly '"Everything and Nothing" is a beautifully written, completely gripping novel that plays on the unsettling notion that sometimes the least safe place is your very own home' Emily Mortimer
