But when they are involved in an accident on an icy road, the Doyles are forced to confront certain truths about their lives, how the death of Doyle's wife Bernadette has affected the family, and an anonymous figure who is always watching.

Run Reviews

'Enthralling ... It's a skilled piece of writing, a jigsaw narrative that leaps from one character to another with apparent seamlessness' Observer 'A spectacular read ... Full of suspense, exciting and unpredictable, this is a novel that keeps you guessing until the end' Sunday Express 'Her books are so warm, so overflowing with love and affection, that when you've finished reading one your first inclination is to embrace it' Guardian 'Patchett's mastery means there are no slips on the ice for her readers ... It is a long time since I have read such a delicately nuanced novel, where the overall pleasure lies simply in reading an award-winning writer at the top of her game' Sunday Telegraph
