A mesmerizing new bestseller from Josephine Cox - the nation's favourite storyteller

In the riverside town of Bedford, four students can hear the haunting voice of a woman singing. The beautiful melody is coming from their neighbour - a reclusive creature who never opens the door to anyone or leaves her home in daylight.

They have no way of knowing that the woman next door, Madeleine Delaney is driven by a dangerous memory that for over twenty years has controlled her meagre existence ...

Madeleine's angelic voice and striking looks capture the hearts of many. But she only has eyes for club owner, Steve Drayton - a devastatingly handsome but terrifying man.

Then one night she witnesses a horrific crime, and her life is irrevocably changed forever.The kindness and friendship of one girl - Ellen, rescues Madeleine from utter devastation. But in order to survive, they must flee London, leaving behind those they dearly love, and danger is following them wherever they go.

I love Josephine Cox but this is the worst book she has ever written. It is also one of the worst books I have ever read. The situation is totally outrageous and not to be believed! Not to mention the typo errors and continuity errors. Twice in the book, the author has the heroine in possession of things that she didn't have access too! I finished the book but I have to wonder why I bothered.

Found this a little draggy. I just couldn't stay with it.
