The #1 international bestseller reminiscent of After I’m Gone, Sister, Before I Go to Sleep, and The Silent Wife—an intricately plotted, thoroughly addictive thriller that introduces a major new voice in suspense fiction and will keep you guessing to the very end
No one has ever guessed Emily’s secret.
A happy marriage. A beautiful family. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life—to start again as someone new?
Now Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel. Cat’s buried any trace of her old self so well, no one knows how to find her. But she can’t bury the past—or her own memories.
And soon she’ll have to face the truth of what she’s done—a shocking revelation that may push her one step too far.

“As Cat teeters from being nearly indigent to becoming a confident if reckless Londoner, her experiences on her own make for a diverting read.”
“Seskis reverses the classic methods of such predecessors as Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy by distancing us from her characters in order to keep us ignorant of the driving force behind their actions until the climactic conclusion…Designed for readers who appreciate the journey and are willing to invest the time to reflect on its significance once the destination is reached.”
“A skillfully done novel by a writer to watch.”
“Excellent, dramatic pacing, dialogue, and prose, culminating in poignant concluding chapters which examine Emily’s decisions without sentimentality. An evocative, skillful novel about the price of escape. Recommended.”
“The dual narration in this enjoyable audiobook is artful…Both performers have smooth, well-trained, and beautiful voices and handle the drama with conviction and flair. The story…is well made and interesting, with a twist at the end you will not see coming.”
Paul Fox is a British born film actor and audiobook narrator.
