'Brilliantly written and totally gripping. I loved it' S J Watson, author of Before I Go to Sleep, on Tideline Have you committed a crime ...or are you the victim of one? Driving down to the cottage in Southwold she's newly inherited from her Aunty May, Ellie senses she is on the edge of something new.

The life she's always dreamed of living as a successful artist seems as though it is about to begin.

So excited is she that she barely notices when the car bumps against something on the road.

That evening Ellie hears a news flash on the radio. A man was seriously injured in a hit and run on the very road she was driving down that evening.

Then Ellie remembers the thump she heard. Could she have been responsible for putting a man in hospital?

Unable to hold the doubts at bay, she decides to visit the victim to lay her mind to rest, little knowing that the consequences of this decision will change her life forever.

From the acclaimed author of Tideline, The Darkening Hourand the forthcoming AStranger in my House.

This did hold my attention, but the story seemed unconvincing to me. When I finished it, I wondered why I bothered.
