Would you kill for... THE PERFECT LIFE?

Have you ever wanted to be someone else?

Vanessa has always found it easy to pretend to be somebody different, somebody better. When things get tough in her real life, all she has to do is throw on some nicer clothes, adopt a new accent and she can escape.

That's how it started- looking round houses she couldn't possibly afford. Harmless fun really. Until it wasn't.

Because a man who lived in one of those houses is dead.

And everyone thinks Vanessa killed him...

Reviews for The Perfect Life

A stunning book. Compelling, unsettling and powerful this is a book that will stay with me for a long time -- C. L. Taylor, on 'The Day of the Accident' Brilliantly compulsive and with one hell of a twist! I was consumed until the final heartbreaking page -- Claire Douglas, on 'The Day of the Accident' A clever, twisty plot that takes psychological mind games to a new level. Nuala Ellwood has done it again! -- Jane Corry, on 'The Day of the Accident'
