A gripping and deliciously twisty new psychological thriller from Jo Jakeman.

The morning after a terrible storm, a woman turns up in a remote Cornish village. She calls herself Charlie, but it's a name she's only had for a few days. She keeps herself to herself, reluctant to integrate with the locals. Because Charlie has a secret.

Charlie was in prison for providing a false alibi for a murderer. But Lee Fisher wasn't a murderer to her; he was the man she loved. Convinced of his innocence, Charlie said she was with him the night a young woman was killed. This sacrifice cost her everything.

And now she has a chance to start again. But someone is watching her, waiting for her, wondering if she's really paid the price for what she did.

Reviews for Safe House

I was absolutely gripped by this tale of secrets, lies, and the impossibility of running away from your past. I struggled to put this book down. Fantastic! -- Luca Veste, author of <i>The Bone Keeper</i> An excellent, page-turning psychological suspense novel with a great plot and an engaging protagonist! Kept me guessing to the end -- Jenny Quintana, author of <i>The Missing Girl</i> A queasily unsettling thriller is suffused with menace. * Sunday Mirror * You'll be gripped by just who is out to get Charlie - and why * HEAT * Nerve-wrackingly tense and paranoia-inducing, with a sense of unease that just won't let go. I loved every minute!
