Like Mother, Like Daughter

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Summary

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO PROTECT THE ONE YOU LOVE?

Cleo arrives for dinner at her childhood home, only to find food burning in the oven, no sign of her mother, and a bloody shoe under the sofa.

The polar opposite of Cleo, whose 'out of control' emotions and 'unsafe' behaviour have created a seemingly unbridgeable rift between mother and daughter, Kat is the epitome of glamorous perfection: a happily married, successful corporate lawyer.

What Cleo doesn't know, is that Kat's not just a lawyer: she's her firm's fixer. She's damn good at it too. Growing up in a dangerous group home taught her how to think fast, stay calm under pressure and recognise a real threat when she sees one. And in the days leading up to her disappearance, Kat has become aware of all too many of those.

As Cleo digs deeper into her mother's disappearance, it becomes clear that the two have far more in common than they ever could have imagined.
