'Outstanding. The best thriller in years' MARTINA COLE'One of the best thrillers I have read in years' THE OBSERVER'I couldn't put it down.

A visceral nightmare of a book with one of the most evil villains I've come across in a long time.

Powerful writing' STEVE CAVANAGH'Short, sharp shocker' THE TIMES'An early contender for one of the best books of the year' S MAGAZINEHe is her husband.

She is his captive. Her husband calls her Jane. That is not her name. She lives in a small farm cottage, surrounded by vast, open fields.

Everywhere she looks, there is space. But she is trapped. No one knows how she got to the UK: no one knows she is there.

Visitors rarely come to the farm; if they do, she is never seen. Her husband records her every movement during the day.

If he doesn't like what he sees, she is punished. For a long time, escape seemed impossible. But now, something has changed. She has a reason to live and a reason to fight. Now, she is watching him, and waiting . . .

TAYLOR'Seriously nail-biting stuff! I raced through it, my heart in my mouth' EMMA CURTIS'Tremendously powerful and fantastically written, heart-stopping from page one.

Expect to see it on all the award lists' SARAH HILARY
