Take Me In
'Twisty, turny, unputdownable...the perfect beach read' Grazia
By Sabine Durrant
The sensational new thriller from the author of the Richard & Judy bestseller Lie With Me.
A hot beach. A young family on holiday. A fatal moment of inattention...
And now Dave Jepsom is in their lives.
Dave Jepsom, with his muscles, his pale eyes, his expressionless face.
He saved their child. How can they ever repay him? Especially as what he seems to want in return is everything.
He's in the streets they walk down. He's at the office where they work. He's at their front door, leaning on the bell...
If only they could go back. Back to when the lies were still hidden. Before the holiday, before the beach, before the moment that changed everything.
But it's never how it starts that matters. It's always how it ends.
