Okay so I've been hooked on to quite a few thrillers of late and just can't seem to get enough. And this is one of the latest I have got, in fact, it arrived in the mail just today morning and I can't wait to devour it. Will jump in right when I have finished the huge book I am reading right now (can't wait to finish and gobble this up!!)

So here is the first page for you, and if you haven't about this book yet, let me just tell you that if you liked Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (I am yet to meet someone who hasn't liked that one!), you should definitely give this one a try.

Spring 2013

Catherine braces herself, but there is nothing left to come up. She grips the cold enamel and raises her head to look in the mirror. The face that looks back at her is not the one she went to bed with. She has seen this face before and hoped never to see it again. She studies herself in this new harsh light and wets a flannel, wiping her mouth then pressing it against her eyes as if she can extinguish the fear in them.

'Are you OK?'

Her husband's voice startles her. She hoped he would stay asleep. Leave her alone.

'Better now,' she lies, switching off the light. Then she lies again. 'Must have been last night's take-away.' She turns to him, a shadow in the dead-hour light.

'Go back to bed. I'm fine,' she whispers. He is more asleep than awake, yet still he reaches out and puts his hand on her shoulder.

 'You sure?'
