Rosa Fisher is the smart girl, the good girl. At twenty-five and mid-way through a PhD in the psychology of fraud, she thinks she has herself all figured out. Until that night, when the house is dark and she is all alone, and she hears an intruder on the stairs. But the intruder isn’t looking for Rosa Fisher. He’s after someone else. And everything Rosa has ever known about her world is about to be turned upside down.

This is the story of Rosa and of how one night an intruder broke into her family home and changed her life as she knew it forever.
It is billed as a fast paced Thriller but I found the first part a bit slow going and a bit far fetched but it did have me intrigued and I thought I knew exactly where it was going until the second half threw in a murder!!! (no spoilers).
I didn’t warm to the main character at first and I just wanted to shake her as everything she was told not to do she did but she grew on me and I was intrigued to know what had happened to her and her family. The author is very descriptive, and you do feel like you can see exactly what Rosa sees.
I did guess the major twist but then I do pride myself on doing that.
Whilst I enjoyed the book it is not one of the best thrillers I have read and I did spot a few inconsistencies and was left with questions but there are three books in this series featuring one of the characters and I will read the other two out of interest (you don’t have to have read them to read this book as each story stands alone).
