Publication: Simon & Schuster, 2018, London
First edition. Signed by the author. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. Sophie’s husband, James, is a loving father, and a successful public figure. Yet he stands accused of a terrible crime. Sophie is convinced he is innocent and desperate to protect her precious family from the lies that threaten to engulf him. Kate is the lawyer hired to prosecute the case. She is certain that James is guilty and is determined he will pay for his crime.Who is right about James? Sophie or Kate? And is either of them informed by anything more than instinct and personal experience? Most people would prefer not to try to understand what passes between a man and a woman when they are alone: alone in bed, alone in an embrace, alone in an elevator or alone in the moonlit courtyard of an Oxford college, where a girl once stood before a boy, heart pounding with excitement, then fear. Sophie never understood why her tutorial partner Holly left Oxford so abruptly. What would she think, if she knew the truth?
