A Good Mother : A gripping psychological thriller with a heart-pounding twist, Paperback / softback Book

A Good Mother : A gripping psychological thriller with a heart-pounding twist Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


I see my son's scooter lying in the undergrowth. Time stands still. Where is he? Deafened by my own heartbeat, I keep looking but I can't see him. This is all my fault. My punishment for the things I did, and the things I should have done.

All I ever wanted was to keep my son safe. I married the perfect husband, built the perfect home. I've tried to give Finn the life I never had.

Everything was going so well. Until now.

It's just small things at first - a punctured tyre, an open gate that I'm sure I locked. But then I see the photograph of two young girls, and a night I've tried to forget.

I know I have to stop pretending that nothing is happening. I can't escape the truth.

Someone knows my secret. But what do they want from me?

A gripping and suspenseful thriller with a jaw-dropping twist, fans of Friend RequestThe Wife Between Us and The Girl on the Train won't be able to put this down.
