Nine years ago, Charlie Colbert’s life changed for ever.

On Christmas Eve, as the snow fell, her elite graduate school was the site of a chilling attack. Several of her classmates died. Charlie survived.

Years later, Charlie has the life she always wanted at her fingertips: she’s editor-in-chief of a major magazine and engaged to the golden child of the publishing industry.

But when a film adaptation of that fateful night goes into production, Charlie’s dark past threatens to crash into her shiny present.

Charlie was named a ‘witness’ in the police reports. Yet she knows she was much more than that.

The truth about that night will shatter everything she’s worked for. Just how far will she go to protect it?

A dark and deeply compulsive read that will keep you racing through the pages late into the night, perfect for fans of Lucy Foley, Gillian McAllister and Girl A by Abigail Dean.

S Magazine, Sunday Express
A proper thriller with plenty of twists and turns
M. W. Craven, author of Sunday Times bestseller and Theakston's Crime Novel of the Year THE BOTANIST
A creeping sense of dread, a slow, almost torturous, drip-feeding of information, and a highly likeable, yet unsettlingly unreliable narrator. It all builds to one of the most chilling and interesting reads of the year. Highly recommended.
A delicious crime debut full of false memories and unreliable narrators, which means twists and turns a plenty!
Rachel Abbott, author of DON'T LOOK AWAY
Totally gripping . . . grabbed me from the start, and didn't let go until I had finished the last page. Each characters is unique and so clear that, by the end of the book, I felt as if knew them all, and that I had been there with them throughout the story

Compelling and engrossing . . . From the dark academia feel of the flashback scenes to the glossy, magazine world of the present, this book had me constantly uncomfortable and off balance - in exactly the way I imagine the author intended!
Celia Walden, author of Richard & Judy Book Club pick PAYDAY
Slick, satisfying, smart and perfectly paced, this is the breakout debut thriller of 2024
Jessica Irena Smith, author of THE SUMMER I VANISHED
What an absolute treat! I was hooked from the first chapter and I never saw the twists coming. It is brilliantly written, sharp and dark - I loved it!'

Nina Pottell, Prima
Thriller fans will lap up this tense tale

This compulsive lead debut certainly delivered on its publisher's promise of keeping me up all night

Daily Mirror
A strong debut novel . . . well-paced and solidly plotted. There are more than enough revelations to keep you turning the pages as you race to find out the truth
Jennifer Hillier, author of THINGS WE DO IN THE DARK
Exactly the kind of thriller I love. It's a deliciously conflicting feeling to wonder when the shiny perfection of a new life built over a terrible secret will begin to tarnish, and in her first novel, Hollander doles out the suspense as masterfully as any veteran author . . . A dark and dazzling debut
