Overview

Little do they know their captive holds a deadly secret.

Jess Fraser would appear to have everything, married to a devoted husband and mother to a lively son, until she is taken hostage by three thugs and held to ransom in an upstairs room.

She cuts a hole in the bedroom floor in a desperate bid to escape, and instead finds herself drawn into the secret everyday lives of her abductors. And Jess had a secret. She is not what she appears, and it has nothing to do with her spying.

With her spyhole growing in obsession, Jess finds herself drawn into a complex psychological game with her abductors and revisiting her dark past. Jess begins to question her life with her husband, Harvey and what lies hidden behind her privileged upbringing.

Jess thinks she has the dynamics of her hosts worked out. But she is in for a shock. Will Jess ever escape, and will she escape with her sanity intact?

Note: this novel can also be found within two anthologies: Eclipse Quartet: 4 Psychological Thrillers, and Gone Too Far: 3 Psychological Thrillers about Taboo. Now on audio.
