A superb thriller and a truly engrossing read. Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10
When Roy meets a wealthy widow online, he can hardly believe his luck. Just like Patricia Highsmith s Tom Ripley, Roy is a man who lives to deceive and everything about Betty suggests she s an easy mark. He s confident that his scheme to swindle her will be a success. After all, he s done this before.
Sure enough, Betty soon lets Roy move into her beautiful home, seemingly blind to the web of lies he s woven around her. But who is Roy, really? Spanning almost a century, this stunning and suspenseful feat of storytelling interweaves the present with the past. As the clock turns back and the years fall away, long-hidden secrets are forced into the light. Some things can never be forgotten. Or forgiven."
