But mainly this was just an incredible story, filled with utterly believable characters and brilliantly told. I absolutely adored it' - * Lisa Jewell, bestselling author of THEN SHE WAS GONE * 'Powerfully atmospheric, unguessably twisty...I devoured it' - * Louise Candlish, bestselling author of OUR HOUSE *
