In this masterful suspense novel, which will appeal to fans of Gone Girl, it's clear that the truth is not always what it seems . . .

There are secrets in every marriage . . . and some are more dangerous than others.

Sarah and Marco Moretti are the perfect couple. Together they have travelled the globe building high-profile careers as archaeologists. Now, at a dig in Florence, they are on the brink of the discovery of a lifetime.

However their marriage is not what it seems.

On the very evening that Sarah uncovers the San Gennaro necklace – a long-lost antiquity that will bring them worldwide fame – she witnesses Marco kissing another woman. Blinded by tears, she drives home alone in the dead of night . . .

When Sarah wakes up in hospital, she has no memory of the car accident that brought her there - or the 48 hours preceding it.

Gone is the knowledge of her husband’s infidelity. But gone too is all recollection of finding the precious necklace.

And the loss of those two crucial memories will have devastating repercussions…

"Memory can be the difference between love and hate, survival and death, forgiveness and revenge"

It’s like a drug. One hit of it and you’re under its spell, and then all you can think about is more. When you’ll have it again. When you’ll relive that rush of holding it in your hands. The thrill of announcing it to the world. The glory and fame that comes afterwards.

At least, that’s how it was for me. It was the reason I became an archaeologist. Finding an ancient relic that told a story of the past: it was my addiction. I lived for the chance to find an artefact that could rewrite history, something so significant that it wouldn’t just illuminate the past, it would shine a light on me.
