The Perfect Life

The new gripping thriller you won't be able to put down from the bestselling author of DAY OF THE ACCIDENT




Would you kill for... THE PERFECT LIFE?

Have you ever wanted to be someone else?

Vanessa has always found it easy to pretend to be somebody different, somebody better. When things get tough in her real life, all she has to do is throw on some nicer clothes, adopt a new accent and she can escape.

That's how it started: looking round houses she couldn't possibly afford. Harmless fun really. Until it wasn't.

Because a man who lived in one of those houses is dead.

And everyone thinks Vanessa killed him...
