‘Marriage, obsession, and the blind trust of a young woman—Louise Mangos combines these elements into a catastrophic winter storm' Christina Dalcher, Sunday Times bestselling author of VOX
Art college dropout Lucie arrives in a Swiss ski resort looking for work – but instead finds love in the form of the handsome and charismatic Mathieu.
Matt seems like perfect husband material – especially when Lucie discovers he's from a wealthy family. But Matt's dark side soon emerges. Manipulative, controlling and abusive, he is anything but perfect and will tear the life she has built for herself and their six-year-old son JP apart.
Then, one fateful night, things come to a head in the most shocking way . . .
Wrongly accused of her husband's murder and left fighting for her freedom in a foreign prison, Lucie is starting to lose her grip on reality. Now, she must summon all her strength to uncover the truth about Matt's death and be reunited with her son – before it's too late.
The clock is ticking . . . but who can she trust?
Previously published as The Art of Deception.
