THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER. The new pulse-pounding and unputdownable thriller from the author of the number one bestseller THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR, and A STRANGER IN THE HOUSE.

**********

We can’t choose the strangers we meet.

As the guests arrive at beautiful, remote Mitchell’s Inn, they’re all looking forward to a relaxing weekend deep in the forest, miles from anywhere. They watch their fellow guests with interest, from a polite distance.

Until we find ourselves in a situation we can’t escape. Trapped.
