Amazon reviewers can’t get enough: ‘I LOVED THIS BOOK’ ***** ‘Gloriously gripping’ ***** ‘Magnificent’ ***** ‘Heart-stopping, racy and sophisticated’ ***** ‘Compulsive and clever’ ***** On the surface, Anna Witherall has the perfect life.
Married to her university boyfriend David, she has an enviable job, beautiful home, and gorgeous three-year-old twin daughters, Stella and Rose.
Their competent and capable nanny, Maria, is practically part of the family. But beneath the veneer of success and happiness, Anna is hiding a dark secret, one that threatens to unravel everything she has worked so hard to create.
Only one thing is certain: to protect her children, she must betray them. ‘Compelling and complex – a compulsive read’ Harriet Tyce, author of Blood Orange ‘Everyone has an agenda in this intriguing exploration of deceit and duplicity, as Philby ratchets up the paranoia to Highsmithian levels’ Guardian
