Description

Passion, obsession...and murder. A deeply unsettling psychological thriller in which a secret game between lovers has deadly consequences. 'Simply one of the most disturbing thrillers I've read in years. In short I loved it, right down to the utterly chilling final line.' GILLIAN FLYNN Most of us spend our whole lives searching for the person who'll make us feel complete. But Mike and Verity know they're different. They've found their soulmate, and nothing can tear them apart. Not even the man Verity is marrying. Because they play a secret game, one they call 'the Crave', to demonstrate what they both know- that Verity needs Mike, and Mike alone. But Mike knows that Verity's impending marriage will raise the stakes of their game higher than ever before. Because this time, for Mike and Verity to stay together, someone has to die... 'A propulsive and addictive study of the darkness of obsessive love. I was completely gripped from the first word to the last.' LISA JEWELL 'As merciless a thriller as I've ever read. Astonishingly dark and sensationally accomplished.' AJ FINN, author of The Woman in the Window 'A tense intelligent thriller that kept me gripped and guessing until the last page - and thinking long after that.' ERIN KELLY 'A taut, fascinating psychological thriller. Original and powerful. Be prepared for questions to linger in your head for a long time afterward.' JULIA HEABERLIN 'Toxic love, obsession, and the unflinching unravelling of a mind. Scarily plausible, a great read.' ALI LAND 'Chilling. Disturbing. Addictive. I couldn't put this down.' EMMA FLINT 'Like watching a slow motion car-crash through splayed fingers' TAMMY COHEN 'An addictive dive into dangerous, extreme obsession. A must-read' JULIA CROUCH
