A relentlessly twisty thriller of greed, mystery, and betrayal, in which a young widow must outwit her husband's dangerous family, from bestselling British novelist Frances Fyfield.

In a rambling old mansion by the sea, Thomas Porteous lies dying. His much younger wife Di, soon to be his sole heir, knows that her in-laws will soon descend on their home to lay claim to an inheritance.

Members of the Porteous family, including a pair of poisonous daughters, believe that they alone are entitled to the dead man's wealth. They all regard Di as a gold-digging interloper--all except Thomas's adoring grandson, who is torn between his loyalty to his parents and the intriguing widow.

As tensions rise like a tide, lethal secrets surface--secrets that expose Di's shocking past. To survive, she must now discover the weaknesses of her enemies. With the help of an unlikely collection of loners and eccentrics, she sets a trap to expose their evil greed. And on the night they are lured to the house, Di will be ready.

Humming with psychological suspense, this high-voltage thriller is a mesmerizing game of cat and mouse.

Back cover copy

From the British Gillian Flynn, a tense, twisting thriller about a young wife, a dying husband--and the family that comes between them . . .

In a vast house by the sea, a wealthy man lies dying. His young wife, Di, soon to be his sole heir, awaits the arrival of her in-laws, all of them bent on claiming an inheritance.

A pair of poisonous daughters, a merciless husband, a beguiling grandson--each has a scheme, each keeps a secret. And each has underestimated the widow Di, who is far more resourceful, and far more merciless, than the family could possibly suspect . . .

Humming with psychological suspense, packed with surprising twists, this high-voltage thriller is a mesmerizing game of cat and mouse.
