A wife, a mother, a killer.

One wrong decision, one terrifying night, leaves student Elizabeth with a stark choice – kill or be killed. And the consequences of that choice will shape her whole life.

Now a wife, a mother, and a lawyer, she must find a way to out run her past, protect her family and live with her secret. But is it really possible to live a happy life with such a huge shadow cast by the past? And as it becomes clear that someone else knows her secret and is hunting her down, time is running out for Elizabeth to keep her family safe.

In the bestselling tradition of Clare Mackintosh and Jenny Blackhurst, Cynthia Clark has written a heart-stopping story about the choices we make and how far we’d go to protect our families. Even if it means deceiving the people we love most…


I enjoyed this book!

I was hooked from the beginning. It opens with Elizabeth’s confession of murder, so I knew it was going to be good. Fairly early on, I learned the circumstances of Elizabeth’s crime, and it’s hard to blame her. I was sympathetic for her. 

I liked that there were two perspectives from Elizabeth, from 1998 and 2014. I could tell that she was the same character but she was more mature in 2014. 

I had figured out what was going on with Claire’s circumstances early in the story, but I was still excited about the story. I was very intrigued to see how it all ended. 

I liked this story. It was an exciting thriller!
