'I am about to pull the curtains and shut out the weather when, at the margin of my vision, a woman falls out of the sky'

From the warmth of her living room, her infant twins tucked up in bed, Robin Ballantyne is horrified to witness the suicide of her neighbour, Paula Carmichael.

An investigation soon reveals that this highly respected social activist and community figure had been haunted by dark, mysterious secrets. Inexplicably, her diaries are peppered with observations about Robin herself.

When Robin puts this terrible event behind her and tries to restart her career as a TV producer, tragedy moves even closer to home and she finds herself at the centre of a murder investigation, her safe existence transformed into a living nightmare.

Hounded by police and press, Robin must enter a dangerous race against the clock to save her name, and her life . . .

'A stellar debut novel . . . Remember Sampson's name; it's about to become an important one in crime fiction' Booklist
