'A highly accomplished novel . . . arresting . . . ingenious' Sunday Times
'Wonderfully sinister' Fiona Barton, author of The Widow
When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it's there. There's no explanation: just a grainy image, a website address and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it's just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.
Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make . . .
Shortlisted for CrimeFest Audible Sounds of Crime Award 2017 and British Book Awards: Crime Thriller of the Year 2017.
