'I think you might be my father ...' When first-year student Zoe Barry walks into Professor David Connolly's office and tentatively says these words, he is left reeling.
But it is the lives of his family - particularly his wife Caroline - which are turned upside down by the arrival of this stranger.
A daughter, a sister, a friend ...an enemy? Though no one knows quite who Zoe is, she is soon entangled in their lives.
Yet her stories don't ring true and Caroline is determined to learn if the girl is the unlucky innocent she claims to be or someone with a far darker agenda.
A deadly cuckoo in the nest ...Because by letting Zoe in, David and Caroline aren't just leaving themselves vulnerable.
They're risking the most precious thing in the world - the lives of their children ...Praise for Karen Perry 'Both as a crime novel and as an emotional journey, it's gripping stuff' Tana French 'Taut, smartly written, empathetic, unbearably tense' Irish Independent
