A heart-pounding psychological thriller for fans of Disclaimer and Apple Tree Yard.
My husband's lover. They said her death was a tragic accident. And I believed them . . . until now.
Carmen is happily married to Tom, a successful London lawyer and divorcee with three children. She is content to absorb the stresses of being a stepmother to teenagers and the stain of 'second wife'. She knows she'll always live in the shadow of another woman - not Tom's first wife Jenny, who is resolutely polite and determinedly home-counties, but the lover that ended his first marriage: Zena. Zena who was shockingly beautiful. Zena who drowned swimming late one night.
But Carmen can overlook her husband's dead mistress . . . until she starts to suspect that he might have been the person who killed her.
