Jean Taylor’s life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she’d ever wanted: her Prince Charming.


Until he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil.


But now Glen is dead and she’s alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms.


Jean Taylor is going to tell us what she knows.


‘The ultimate psychological thriller. Barton carefully unspools this dark, intimate tale of a terrible crime, a stifling marriage, and the lies spouses tell not just to each other, but to themselves in order to make it through. The ending totally blew me away!’ Lisa Gardner

‘Stunning from start to finish. I devoured it in one sitting. The best book I’ve read this year. If you liked GONE GIRL, you’ll love this. Fiona Barton is a major new talent.’ M.J. Aldridge

‘Barton tells her tale with a realism and restraint that add to its shattering impact’ Starred review PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
