HE CHEATED. HE LIED... HE DIED.

Vicki's husband David once promised to love her in sickness and in health. But after a brutal attack left her suffering with epilepsy, he ran away with his mistress.

So when Vicki gets a call one day to say that he's missing, her first thought is 'good riddance'. But then the police find evidence suggesting that David is dead. And they think Vicki had something to do with it.

What really happened on the night of David's disappearance?
And how can Vicki prove her innocence, when she's not even sure of it herself?

For anyone who loved The Couple Next Door, Lisa Jewell's Then She Was Gone and Cara Hunter's Close To Home, this book has everything you need for the perfect summer read - gripping twists and turns, brilliant characters and a story you can't put down.
