Jenny is a successful family doctor, the mother of three great teenagers, married to a celebrated neurosurgeon. But when her youngest child, fifteen-year-old Naomi, doesn't come home after her school play, Jenny's seemingly ideal life begins to crumble. The authorities launch a nationwide search with no success. Naomi has vanished, and her family is broken. As the months pass, the worst-case scenarios—kidnapping, murder—seem less plausible. The trail has gone cold. Yet, for a desperate Jenny, the search has barely begun. More than a year after her daughter's disappearance, she's still digging for answers—and what she finds disturbs her. Everyone she's trusted, everyone she thought she knew, has been keeping secrets, especially Naomi. Piecing together the traces her daughter left behind, Jenny discovers a very different Naomi from the girl she thought she'd raised. Jenny knows she'll never be able to find Naomi unless she uncovers the whole truth about her daughter—a twisting, painful journey into the past that will lead to an almost unthinkable revelation. . . .

A brilliantly conceived, deeply unsettling psychological thriller— already an international sensation—about a woman haunted by secrets, the consuming desire for revenge, and the terrible price we pay when we try to hide the truth. Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day she became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew—and that person is dead. Now that the past is catching up with her, Catherine’s world is falling apart. Her only hope is to confront what really happened on that awful day . . . even if the shocking truth might destroy her.

Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job, and a super-cool Instagram feed. OK, so the truth is that she rents a tiny room with no space for a wardrobe, has a hideous commute to a lowly admin job, and the life she shares on Instagram isn’t really hers. But one day her dreams are bound to come true, aren’t they? Until her not-so-perfect life comes crashing down when her mega-successful boss Demeter gives her the sack. All Katie’s hopes are shattered. She has to move home to Somerset, where she helps her dad with his new glamping business. Then Demeter and her family book in for a holiday, and Katie sees her chance. But should she get revenge on the woman who ruined her dreams - or try to get her job back? Does Demeter – the woman who has everything – actually have such an idyllic life herself? Maybe they have more in common than it seems. And what’s wrong with not-so-perfect, anyway? Everybody loves Sophie Kinsella: "I almost cried with laughter" Daily Mail "Hilarious . . . you'll laugh and gasp on every page" Jenny Colgan "Properly mood-altering . . . funny, fast and farcical.

Un grande thriller Uno scontro tra un’ambizione sfrenata e un implacabile destino La vita di Albie va alla grande. La sua carriera di chirurgo è bene avviata e per la prima volta crede di essersi persino innamorato davvero: Beth gli fa provare cose che non avrebbe mai immaginato. E ora il suo mentore, Ted, l’uomo che con autorevolezza e fascino magnetico tiene le fila dell’intero ospedale, gli ha fatto capire che intende fare di lui il suo “erede”. Cosa potrebbe mai andare storto? Soprattutto adesso che si sta dedicando anima e corpo a un progetto di ricerca che, in caso di esito positivo, farebbe brillare per sempre il suo nome nel firmamento della medicina. Eppure... Un’ambizione sfrenata come la sua, forse, lo rende cieco ai piccoli segnali, e qualcosa potrebbe cominciare a incrinarsi nella sua vita perfetta. Come ad esempio il fatto che Beth sta ancora soffrendo per la rottura con Ted, di cui è stata per anni l’amante. E se il destino, dopo averlo coccolato per molto tempo, stesse per mostrargli il suo lato peggiore? Il destino non ti dà ciò che vuoi. Di solito te lo porta via.
