Alex Miller, after years of unaccompanied postings abroad in the service of his country, has finally returned home to his wife Juliet and young son Ben, with the hope of leaving old wounds and memories behind. All Juliet has ever wanted is to get the man she married home for good. At last everything seems perfectly in place to begin the next phase in their married life in their smart new London home.
But Alex s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and irrational and Juliet suspects that he may be suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a result of his experiences serving with an elite regiment in Afghanistan and Iraq. His refusal to either acknowledge this or obtain professional help drives Juliet to seek support on the internet, finding solace in web forums where she can safely share her innermost fears.
Unable to reach Alex, and finally fearing for both her life and Ben s, she is offered a place of safety through one of her trusted internet contacts. She has no choice but to escape the tyranny of their home in the hope of starting afresh...

Alex, an officer in an elite regiment, returns from Afghanistan a changed man. He has left the army behind and is attempting to forge a civilian career as a security advisor. His wife Juliet is delighted. She, Alex and their son, Ben, now live in a well-appointed house in a leafy London suburb. But Juliet is no angel and often antagonises her husband as revenge for the sexual humiliation and violence that has become routine. Research on the internet suggests that Alex is suffering from PTSD but he won't seek help but her plan to help starts a dangerous chain of events.Review:
'...this is superb. Yes its a psychological thriller in many ways it twists away and turns things around on you but the soul of it is something very different. A tale of the human spirit this one will stay with you long after finishing it.' - Liz Wilkins blogging at Liz loves Books
'The best kind of book in my opinion is a book that makes you think, that keeps you guessing and Lizzie did this with panache...It has to be one of the best written books I've read in a long time.' - Dawn Crooks Blogging at Crooks on Books
'I was absolutely gripped by it...it was quite an emotional experience.' - Emily Barr, Author of The Sleeper and many more
'Superbly written, intricately observed - and increasingly, insidiously, horrifying.' - Jake Wood - author of Among You: The Extraordinary True Story of a soldier Broken by War
'This is not a comfortable read but it is utterly compelling. I was riveted to it, right to the last page.' - Fiona Field - author of Soldiers' Wives
'I was gripped from start to finish and thought this was a superb follow up to Nearest Thing to Crazy, which was one of my top reads of 2013, and a hard act to follow.' - BC@BOOKSANDSWEARING - author of A Fucked Up Life In Books
'I am in awe of Elizabeth Forbes. Her writing is chillingly unsettling; tense and so cleverly paced. Prepare yourself to be consumed by this story, to be terrified and at the same time to empathise with the hidden victims of other people's actions. A triumph!' - Anne Cater Random Things Though my Letterbox blog
'I really recommend this book, it was well written and a jaw-dropping, unbelievable pleasure to read.' - Amy Bookolio Book Blog
'This is the second book I've read by Elizabeth Forbes and I can honestly say I will pick up anything that has her name on it, she has a wonderful way of pulling you into a troubled world and keeping you there until the very end. The suspense, the intrigue and the pace all flow fluidly and the twist towards the end helps to culminate in what is a superb novel that is both empathetic and horrific in its telling.' - --Kirsty - blogging at Love of a Good Book
