Everybody has their secrets, and in Sophie Hannah's fantastic stories the curtains positively twitch with them.
Who, for instance, is the hooded figure hiding in the bushes outside a young man's house?
Why does the same stranger keep appearing in the background of a family's holiday photographs?
What makes a woman stand mesmerised by two children in a school playground, children she's never met but whose names she knows well? And which secret results in a former literary festival director sorting soiled laundry in a shabby hotel?
All will be revealed...but at a cost. As Sophie Hannah uncovers the dark obsessions and strange longings behind the most ordinary relationships, life will never seem quite the same again.
