This "twisted psychological thriller" about a woman who escapes her own life by assuming a new identity "will keeps readers guessing . . . until the end" (US Weekly).
No one has ever guessed Emily's secret.
Will you?
A happy marriage. A beautiful family. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life—to start again as someone new?
Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel. Cat's buried any trace of her old self so well, no one knows how to find her. But she can't bury the past—or her own memories.
And soon, she'll have to face the truth of what she's done—a shocking revelation that may push her one step too far. . . .
"One of the world's leading experts at pulling the wool over readers' eyes until the very end." —Sophie Hannah, New York Times–bestselling author of The Monogram Murders
"A skillfully done novel by a writer to watch." —Booklist
"Taut, compelling . . . a storming read." —Bookseller
"Seskis reverses the classic methods of such predecessors as Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy by distancing us from her characters in order to keep us ignorant of the driving force behind their actions until the climactic conclusion." —Library Journal
"Excellent, dramatic pacing, dialogue, and prose, culminating in poignant concluding chapters which examine Emily's decisions without sentimentality. An evocative, skillful novel about the price of escape." —Kirkus Reviews
