Description

NOT EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE . . .

A gripping and deliciously twisty new psychological thriller from Jo Jakeman.

The morning after a terrible storm, a woman turns up in a remote Cornish village. She calls herself Charlie, but it's a name she's only had for a few days. She keeps herself to herself, reluctant to integrate with the locals. Because Charlie has a secret.

Charlie was in prison for providing a false alibi for a murderer. But Lee Fisher wasn't a murderer to her; he was the man she loved. Convinced of his innocence, Charlie said she was with him the night a young woman was killed. This sacrifice cost her everything.

And now she has a chance to start again. But someone is watching her, waiting for her, wondering if she's really paid the price for what she did.

Praise for Jo Jakeman:

'Revenge is a dish served with lashings of relish in this vivid, blackly comic suspense novel' Louise Candlish on Sticks and Stones

Review quote

"Nerve-wrackingly tense and paranoia-inducing, with a sense of unease that just won't let go. I loved every minute!" "I was absolutely gripped by this tale of secrets, lies, and the impossibility of running away from your past. I struggled to put this book down. Fantastic!" "Brave, daring and original . . . I absolutely loved it" "Twisty and so well plotted" "Clever plotting, a hugely confident sense of place, and more suspects than you can shake a stick at"
