Summary

Brought to you by Penguin

From the number one best-selling author of The Family Upstairs and The Night She Disappeared comes an engrossing, twisty tale of betrayal when an outsider is accused of murder.

You don't see her, but she sees you.

MIDNIGHT. In the bad part of town, where cats prowl and foxes shriek, a girl is watching...

When Saffyre Maddox was ten, something terrible happened, and she's carried the pain of it ever since. The man who she thought was going to heal her didn't, and now she hides and watches him, learning his secrets, invisible in the shadows.

Owen Pick is invisible too. He's never had a girlfriend; he's never even had a friend.

Accusing him. Holding him responsible for Saffyre's disappearance...

Reviews

  • An up-all-night gripping story with characters who feel as real as you and me. Lisa Jewell is the kind of writer you read twice – once as a breathless reader, to see how the story unfolds, and then again to try to work out how she makes it look so easy.
