Three women; three lives and three possible deaths . . .
Zoe is a young schoolteacher, newly arrived in the big city. Jennifer is the prosperous, unhappy mother of three boys. Nadia is a chaotic children's entertainer, wondering what to do with her life. They are three women with nothing in common except the man who wants to kill them.
Nicci French's most compulsive novel yet explores the extremities of terror and desire, betrayal and trust, the urge to kill and the instinct to survive.
