'Full of suspense, right up to the final paragraphs...An edgy thriller.' AU Review

She doesn't know him. But he knows everything about her.

Philip Petersen, a wealthy businessman, disappears without trace on a trip to South America. His wife, Sarah, is left to bring up their son on her own.

Seven years later, out of the blue, Sarah receives news that Philip is still alive. But the man who greets her before a crowd of journalists at the airport is a stranger—and he threatens Sarah. If she exposes him, she will lose everything: her house, her job, her son...her whole beautiful life.

Melanie Raabe began her working life as a journalist but secretly wrote books by night. Her debut novel, The Trap, was an international bestseller. Her second, The Stranger, remained on Der Spiegel's bestseller list for almost six months when it was first published in 2016.

'Another unsettling and slippery psychological thriller that keeps you guessing up to the last page.' Readings

'A classic domestic noir...Generates sustained psychological suspense that gets under the skin.' Age

'The fear is palpable... You'll be engrossed every step of the way.' Better Reading

'Raabe cleverly sets up her story, inserting twists and red herrings so that the reader is kept guessing until the final, staggering reveal. Flawlessly translated from German by Imogen Taylor, this page turner is even better than Raabe's debut.' BookMooch

'Raabe once again delivers an enjoyable, page-turning, high concept domestic noir thriller.' PS News

'This psychological thriller will keep you guessing until the end.' Daily Life

'After the initial suspense the novel cascades into an edgy thriller and the end is sweet and innocent and left a tear in my eye.' AU Review, Top Ten Books of 2017
