Five strangers witness a brutal murder in broad daylight—but can they truly believe what they saw? With its grassy hills and breathtaking city views, London’s Hampstead Heath is the perfect place to spend an afternoon with friends and loved ones—and on an unseasonably warm Valentine’s Day, the lawns are especially full. So when an aggressive lovers’ quarrel breaks out, there is an audience of park goers nearby to hear the shouts traded back and forth, and to watch as the violence escalates suddenly to murder, then suicide. For the five strangers who observed the gruesome act, the memory of the gore is unshakable. But one of them—disgraced journalist Jen Hunter—is compelled to question the truth of what she thought she saw. Are the facts of the case plain as day, or were they obscured, in the moment, by the glaring sunlight? As she mounts an obsessive investigation for a seemingly impossible alternative, the lives of the other witnesses begin to unravel, each in its own particular way. Soon one thing becomes clear: the crime they witnessed was more terrible, more twisted, and more far-reaching than they ever could have imagined.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Assured and engrossing.” Sunday Times (London)
“A gorgeous kaleidoscope of a thriller—where what must be the truth reveals itself instantly, and then shifts and changes and twists until it comes into gasping focus. Brilliantly structured, elegantly written, and completely entertaining, this is the essence of a psychological thriller…do not miss this! It is original, thought-provoking, and a master class in manipulation. E. V. Adamson is a star.” Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today bestselling author
“An ‘of-the-moment’ mystery which keeps you wondering until the final page.” Jane Corry, author of I Made a Mistake
“Both a tightly-plotted, entertaining work of suspense and an unflinching study of the trauma of witnessing violence.” Louise Candlish, author of Our House
“An astute and clever thriller that asks a fundamental question: Can we really believe what we see with our own eyes?” Peter Swanson, New York Times bestselling author
“So perfectly pitched it gave me vertigo.” Kate Weinberg, author of The Truants
“Fantastic—I read this in one sitting.” Kate Mosse, New York Times bestselling author
“Meticulously plotted with an ending I really didn’t see coming.” Sarah Vaughan, author of Anatomy of a Scandal
“It starts with a chilling act of murder and continues with twist after twist.” Claire McGowan, author of The Other Wife
