A relentlessly twisty thriller of greed, mystery, and betrayal, in which a young widow must outwit her husband’s dangerous family, from bestselling British novelist Frances Fyfield.

In a rambling old mansion by the sea, Thomas Porteous lies dying. His much younger wife Di, soon to be his sole heir, knows that her in-laws will soon descend on their home to lay claim to an inheritance.

Members of the Porteous family, including a pair of poisonous daughters, believe that they alone are entitled to the dead man’s wealth. They all regard Di as a gold-digging interloper—all except Thomas’s adoring grandson, who is torn between his loyalty to his parents and the intriguing widow.

As tensions rise like a tide, lethal secrets surface—secrets that expose Di’s shocking past. To survive, she must now discover the weaknesses of her enemies. With the help of an unlikely collection of loners and eccentrics, she sets a trap to expose their evil greed. And on the night they are lured to the house, Di will be ready.

Humming with psychological suspense, this high-voltage thriller is a mesmerizing game of cat and mouse.
