Controversial, twisting, provocative and always gripping: this is the suspense novel for 2017 from the author of The Poison Tree, Broadchurch the Novel and The Burning Air. In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse Laura and Kit interrupt something awful. Laura is sure about what happened. Later, when forced to review events under oath as a witness, the truth as she knows it is not so implacably black and white – and all four lives are changed irrevocably. When the victim shows up on their doorstep the fallout is shattering. The course of disclosure will cost her marriage and silence may cost her life.
