Description

From the bestselling author of the DI Geraldine Steel series comes a suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, perfect for fans of domestic noir.

Julie is devastated to learn that her husband, Paul, is having an affair. It seems her life can't get any worse--until she comes home to find his dead body in their bed.

When the police establish he was murdered, Julie is the obvious suspect.

To protect her son from the terrible situation, Julie sends the teenage boy to his grandparents in Edinburgh while she fights to prove her innocence.

With all the evidence pointing to her, the only way she can escape conviction is by discovering the true identity of her husband's killer.

But who really did murder Paul?

The truth is never straightforward...
