AUTHOR: Kelli Hawkins

'A dark, twisting tale of guilt and obsession which will leave you gasping' Petronella McGovern, author of Six MinutesA stunningly tense, page-turning debut for all fans of The Woman in the Window and The Girl on the Train The perfect house. The perfect family. Too good to be true.Kate Webb still grieves over the loss of her young son. Ten years on, she spends her weekends hungover, attending open houses on Sydney's wealthy north shore and imagining the lives of the people who live there.Then Kate visits the Harding house - the perfect house with, it seems, the perfect family. A photograph captures a kind-looking man, a beautiful woman she knew at university, and a boy - a boy that for one heartbreaking moment she believes is her own son. When her curiosity turns to obsession, she uncovers the cracks that lie beneath a glossy facade of perfection, sordid truths she could never have imagined. But is it her imagination? As events start to spiral dangerously out of control, could the real threat come from Kate herself?'At times sad and moving [and] the twists come fast. This promising debut novel would be a good recommendation for fans of thrillers and is a confirmed quick and entertaining holiday read.' Books + Publishing'A clever premise and a troubled narrator set this page-turner up beautifully. I really enjoyed the ride.' Sara Foster'Taut, smart and immensely satisfying. I was addicted from the first page to the last.' Nicola Moriarty
