Freya vient de perdre son mari et sa maison. Elle a besoin d’un toit de toute urgence, pour elle et sa fille de cinq ans. La chance lui sourit le jour où elle rencontre le charismatique Dr Marsden, qui cherche à louer un appartement dans un quartier cossu de Londres pour un loyer dérisoire. Mais pas à n’importe qui : les nouveaux locataires devront se faire accepter des autres résidents. Quand Freya emménage à Adder House, quelque chose lui dit que c’est trop beau pour être vrai...
Derrière sa porte fermée à double tour, elle a l’impression qu’on épie ses moindres faits et gestes. Elle jurerait qu’on s’introduit chez elle en son absence. Est-ce vraiment le hasard qui l’a conduite ici ? On prétend que la précédente locataire n’a pas tenu plus de huit mois, et qu’elle a mis fin à ses jours...

But today I’m finally close to finding happiness again. My ash-blonde hair has been curled into ringlets. Carefully placed white flowers frame my delicate features. The small, drab chapel has been prettied up with white satin, and there are tiny red hearts scattered on the small table where I will soon sign the register with my new husband.

My friends and family can’t understand it. My neighbours whisper in the street whenever I walk past. How can I love a man like Tom?

So when journalist Esme secures an exclusive interview with her it feels like the opportunity of a lifetime. Simone has remained silent since her husband’s death but after a decade in prison, she is willing to talk to Esme. And Esme, recently freed from her own toxic marriage, is confident she can get Simone to open up.
At their first meeting, when Esme sees Simone sitting across the table from her in jeans and a lemon tunic top, she is stuck by her ordinariness. Then Simone begins to tell her story of an abusive relationship where she was a prisoner in her own home, and Esme decides that the truth needs to come out.
But not everyone is pleased that Esme is telling Simone’s story. And when Esme’s beloved sister is left for dead in a nearby wood, Esme’s life begins to unravel.
