Summary, etc.:
From the author of the international bestseller The Perfect Girlfriend comes another breathless thriller, about a woman bound to her late friend's family by a dying wish-a promise that eventually threatens her life. Marie Langham is devastated when her childhood friend Nina is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Before Nina passes away, she asks Marie to look out for her family-her son, daughter and husband, Stuart. Marie would do anything for Nina, so of course she agrees. Following Nina's death, Marie gradually finds herself drawn into her friend's life-her family, her large house in the countryside. But when Camilla, a mutual friend from their old art college days, suddenly reappears, Marie begins to suspect that she has a hidden agenda. And this hunch proves correct when Marie discovers that Nina had long-buried secrets-secrets about a holiday in Ibiza the women took ten years previously, when Marie's then boyfriend went missing after a tragic accident and was later found dead. Marie used to envy Nina's beautiful life, but now she feels increasingly trapped in its ever-shrinking world. As she becomes more and more isolated, Marie must uncover what is true, what isn't and who she can trust-before the consequences of Nina's secrets destroy her.
