'Everything I love in a book' - Lisa Jewell 
 
'Leaves you asking - what would I do? Jane Corry's best yet' - BA Paris
 
Sarah always thought of herself and her husband, Tom, as good people. But that was before their son Freddy came home saying he'd done something terrible. Begging them not to tell the police.
 
Soon Sarah and Tom must find out just how far they are willing to push themselves, and their marriage, to protect their only child . . .
 
As the lies build up and Sarah is presented with the perfect opportunity to get Freddy off the hook, she is faced with a terrifying decision . . .
 
Save her son . . . or save herself?
