‘Gripping . . . I simply couldn’t put it down’ Edel Coffey, author of Breaking Point

‘Kept me guessing with each page I turned’ Patricia Gibney, author of The Missing Ones

From the Top Ten Irish Times bestselling author comes a gripping, emotional thriller that explores the darkest corners of family and the secrets we hide behind closed doors.

Amy jumps at the opportunity when she’s offered a nannying job in picturesque West Cork. The assignment is for the Carroll family, whose stunning house is situated on a stretch of remote coastline. It’s the perfect chance for Amy to start over – far away from her life in Dublin she is trying to escape.

With two adorable children to oversee, a pair of generous employers and a lavish new home, everything seems wonderful. So why can’t Amy shake a creeping sense of unease? Perhaps it’s the husband’s erratic behaviour. Or the strange messages that somebody has been painting around the local village.

Quickly, it becomes clear that all is not well in the Carroll marriage, nor in their idyllic rural community. Whispered secrets and strange occurrences fill the breath-taking scenery with menace and, as the days pass, Amy realises that the refuge she has sought just might be the most dangerous place of all . . .

‘Utterly chilling, with a real sting in the tail’ Sam Blake, author of Remember My Name

‘An emotional rollercoaster’ Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here
