One wrong step and you’re in deep water.

Sukie has had enough of not putting herself out there. She has had enough of her mother thinking so very little of her timid daughter. On a whim, she accepts an offer to go to a Greek island for the weekend with Jake, a man she has barely begun dating. If that isn’t putting herself out here, she doesn’t know what is.

Heather is at the airport when she sees a young woman with an older man – and immediately she understands that the woman is in danger. Because in fifteen years, Heather hasn’t been able to forget what Jake did to her. And the next thing she knows, she’s buying a plane ticket and following them.

What should have been a perfectly pleasant weekend away quickly descends into something much darker. As these two women come ever closer to each other – and to Jake – it becomes increasingly unclear who will walk away from the weekend with their life.

Reviews

The clear-sighted, confident writing won't disappoint Kent's numerous fans
Daily Mail
A slow-burning but relentless thriller with a memorable villain
Daily Mail
Such a brilliant premise for a narrative, and takes us to the territory of our worst nightmares with propulsive force
Jill Dawson
A beautifully taut, gorgeously conceived thriller . . . not to be missed
S J Watson
A powerful, creepy, engaging piece of work.
Irish Times
Classy suspense as ever
Peterborough Evening Telegraph
Extremely tense, at times rather distressing, this novel comes even so with an underlying uplift - the suggestion that none of us are necessarily quite as alone as we sometimes think we are.
Morning Star
A dark tale elegantly written
Irish Independent
