‘Dark, twisty, beautifully written and very clever. Loved it!’ Claire Douglas

On the anniversary of her husband’s accidental death, Marianne seeks comfort in everything Greg left behind. She wears his shirt and cologne, reads their love letters and emails. Soon she’s following his footsteps across the web, but her desperation to cling to any trace of him leads her to the dark web. And a hit list with her name on it.

To try to save herself from Sam, the assassin hired to kill her, Marianne must first unpick the wicked web in which Greg became tangled. Was Greg trying to protect her or did he want her dead?


A beautifully written book that tackles complex issues on a very personal level. A dark, fast-paced thriller with a hard-hitting emotional impact.
