About the book

Theres the obvious story. And then theres the truth.

Alex lives a comfortable life with his wife Beth in the leafy suburb of Silver Vale. Fine, so hes not the most outgoing guy on the street, he prefers to keep himself to himself, but hes a good husband and an easy-going neighbour.

Thats until Beth announces the creation of a nature trail on a local site thats been disused for decades and suddenly Alex is a changed man. Now hes always watching. Questioning. Struggling to hide his dread . . .

As the landscapers get to work, a secret threatens to surface from years ago, back in Alexs twenties when he got entangled with a seductive young woman called Marina, who threw both their lives into turmoil.

And who sparked a police hunt for a murder suspect that was never quite what it seemed.

And it still isnt.
