Una Richardson is devastated after the death of her mother. Hoping for a fresh start, she responds to an advertisement and steps into the rich, comforting world of elderly Mrs Elspeth McKenzie.
But Elspeth’s home is not as safe as it seems.
Kathryn, her cold and bitter daughter, resents Una’s presence. More disturbing is the evidence suggesting two girls lived here before.
What happened to them?
Why will the McKenzies not talk about them?
As the walls close in around her, Una fears she’ll end up just like the other girls.

I’ve read other books by the author and have been impressed. So, I was looking forward to this. The premise really intrigued me. I wanted to know what was going on. I read this book quickly because I couldn’t stop reading once I’d started it. I’m a big fan of thriller and there are certain things I look for in them. This book ticks all of the boxes for me; great plot, great twists, great characters and intensity. There is a lot of emotion in the book, despite the dark undertones so I really connected with it. This is a definition of a page-turner.
