But when Fran wakes one night to find Nathan gone, she makes a devastating discovery. As questions about her husband and her relationships start to mount, Fran's life begins to spiral out of control.
What is she hiding from the police about her marriage, and does she really know the man she shared her bed with?

Gripping, intriguing

I've recently become a fan of Christobel Kent, with her almost stream-of-consciousness style of unfolding a narrative. The story is told very much from the perspective of her protagonist and develops in the manner of thought, with random connections, recollections and ideas provoked by what's going on in the action, so that the story unfolds in patches, with a misty confusion like real life. The characters come into focus and then recede as the heroine interprets and then reinterprets their motivations, keeping the suspense level high. My only quibble is that there are some aspects of the plot which are a little extreme but Kent maintains the willing suspension of disbelief through her masterful unravelling of the facts of the story. The narration is excellent and contributes to the drama.
