The Perfect Betrayal

‘I thought she was our friend. I thought she was trying to help us.’

After the sudden death of her husband, Tess Clarke is drowning in grief. All she has left is her son, Jamie, and she’ll do anything to keep him safe – but she’s struggling to cope.

When grief counsellor Shelley knocks on their door, everything changes. Shelley is beautiful, confident and takes control when Tess can’t bear to face the outside world.

But when questions arise over her husband’s death and strange things start to happen, Tess begins to suspect that Shelley has an ulterior motive. Tess knows she must do everything she can to keep Jamie safe – but who can she trust?
