Alice's baby is two weeks old when she leaves the house without her for the first time. On her eager return, she finds the front door open, her husband asleep on their bed upstairs. She rushes into their baby's room and screams. 'This isn't our baby! Where's our baby?' Her increasingly hostile husband swears she must be either mad or lying, and the DNA test is going to take a week.

One week later, before the test has been taken, Alice and the baby have disappeared. Run away, abducted, murdered? The police who dismissed her baby swap story must find out, and as they do they find dark incidents in David's past - like the murder of his ex-wife...

In the last part of the book, where the denouement is supposedly taking place, and the reader supposedly should be put in the mood-Oh, what a surprise! ", In reality put me in the mood -This is tedious and confusing. The book can be viewed as a version of “Gone girl”

English psychological thriller about a woman whose domineering stepmother threatens to tear her marriage and family apart. Overly long for an ending trying to explain the resoning for her actions.
Well written , engrossing and taut.

Not bad - a good beginning but it does get a little slow after a fast start and has a disappointing ending. But why is this an American edition with language and grammar mangled? I am confused as to why British authors have to suffer this treatment. Please, please buy British editions of British authors and not these dumbed-down versions.

Like other Sophie Hannah books, it hooks at the start, then gets rather tedious, though one wants to see how it ends.
