A fragile woman. An unwelcome intruder. A house full of secrets

Faye and her husband Hugh have had a traumatic year. Wanting to start again, the couple decides to move to Cross House, hoping to leave the past behind them.

However, the tranquillity of Cross House is soon ruined when Faye begins to wake, every night, to the sound of somebody creeping around the bedroom. She tries to explain it to Hugh, frightened for the safety of their children, but Hugh dismisses her claims, thinking she is heading for another breakdown.

Obsessed with finding answers, Faye uncovers secrets about the Wentworth family who lived in the house before them. But when she discovers the tragic fate of the Wentworths, Faye starts to wonder if the intruder might be closer to home than she first thought. And if so, Faye could be in mortal danger…
