'Part thriller, part dark, unpredictable love story. A GRIPPING page-turner' - ADELE PARKS, Platinum Magazine
'INGENIOUS. A smart, pacy and highly entertaining thriller' - T.M. LOGAN
Hannah knows the cage intimately. Small, the size of a shopping centre parking space. A bed, a basin, a table and chair. A hatch and metal drawer through which to exchange food and other items.
Then there's him. Always there on the edges of her vision, no matter how hard she tries to block him out.
Every day, the same thoughts run through Hannah's mind:
What if he speaks to me?
What if he hurts me?
What if he gets out?
'Stunning. Staggeringly original, chilling, ELECTRIFYING. I raced through the final chapters with my heart in my mouth' - CHRIS WHITAKER, author of We Begin at the End
