A daughter, a sister, a friend . . . an enemy?
Though no one knows quite who Zoë is, she is soon entangled in their lives. Yet her stories don't ring true and Caroline is determined to learn if the girl is the unlucky innocent she claims to be or someone with a far darker agenda.
A deadly cuckoo in the nest . . .Because by letting Zoë in, David and Caroline aren't just leaving themselves vulnerable. They're risking the most precious thing in the world - the lives of their children . . .

For life is anything but perfect for this family, and Zoe's appearance arrives at the worst time. But David is delighted to welcome Zoe into his life and his home as her presence allows him to cling onto his memories from his past, the past he regrets walking away from. But as even more tension seeps through the entire household, and everybody is affected by Zoe's presence, they must ask themselves can they really trust this girl? Do they really know her?
