The police officer’s voice is steady as he tells me the news. ‘Your husband is in hospital.’ My heart pounds. I think about my children, safely tucked up in bed. What will happen to us if he loses his life? And more importantly… do the police know where I really was tonight?


Everybody thinks Michael and I are the perfect couple. But everybody is wrong.


Because my dear, lovely husband was at the heart of a scandal at the school where he teaches. He was cleared of any wrongdoing. At first, I believed him. Now, I’m sure he’s been hiding something terrible.


But I can’t tell the police a thing. Because my husband isn’t the only one with secrets.


So, as I stand here knowing I have to tell my children that Michael is fighting for his life, I ask myself: what would be worse? For my husband, the much-loved local teacher, to die? Or for him to live, and for all his lies to come home again?


In the end, the choice is easy. I know what I have to do…


I’ll tell the police that I would never, ever hurt my husband. But will they believe me?

This is a heart-racing thriller that you won’t be able to put down! Perfect for fans of The Housemaid, The Perfect Marriage and Shari Lapena.
