Someone was in her house. Someone who knows her.
“You will know me.” The hoarse whisper comes from a room in the house during the dead of the night. A stranger’s voice is recorded by equipment Sophie set up because Sophie is paranoid that someone is out to get her.
With few people in her life, Sophie spends all of her time either teaching at a primary school or caring for her ailing mother. Suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s disease, Sophie’s mother is a difficult patient, leaving her little time to herself.
But on the day Sophie finally decides to put herself first and go on a first date, strange things begin to happen. She finds a discarded button in the garden. A handprint on the outside of the window. Her confused mother blames new bruises on a ‘shadow’. Who is following her and why?
And then the voice…
After years of emotional abuse, Sophie begins to wonder if her cruel mother is faking her illness and playing tricks on her. But what kind of mother would do that to her daughter? And what about the man she met online?
To uncover her stalker, Sophie must look into her past, but she might not like what she finds.
An unsettling psychological thriller by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of SILENT CHILD.
