The Second Woman

£8.99

Sandrine lives alone, rarely speaking to anyone other than her colleagues. She is resigned to her solitary life, until she sees on TV a man despairing for his wife who has mysteriously disappeared. Sandrine is drawn to him and eventually the two strike up a relationship. When the man’s wife reappears, Sandrine is forced to confront the truth about him. Is he all she thought he was, or is he hiding an abusive and manipulative character? Who can she trust – the man she loves now, or the woman he loved first?

Description

“Astonishingly immersive? and beautifully wrought.”  — Lisa Harding, author of Bright Burning Things, a READ WITH JENNA BOOK CLUB PICK

“A brilliant portrayal of female strength? In a genre that thrives on the mistreatment of women, Mey shows us the other side.”  –Anna Bailey
 
The addictive French noir about coercive control and survival that turns on a knife edge-the perfect next read for fans of The Perfect Nanny

Missing persons don’t always stay that way?
 
Sandrine is unhappy in her body, her house, and her life.

But none of that matters when she meets her man. He makes room for her, a place in his home, with his son.
 
He cares about where she is, and who she is speaking to. He loves her, intensely.

Everything would be perfect, if only the first woman–the one from before–would just stay away. . .
