Everyone envies the Randalls. As Robert embarks on a luxurious retirement, his beautiful wife Caroline thrives as an accomplished hostess, and their handsome twins launch their own high-flying careers. It is almost too good to be true.
No one envies Stuart. Used to fending for himself after a childhood of foster homes, he is now making his way as best he can, vowing to lose a bit more weight and become a bit more successful.
But a chance encounter sets in motion a series of events which will shatter everything. Some will think they’ve lost, and some will think they’re winning, but none of them will be prepared for what is to come in the final catastrophe of jealousy, betrayal and agonizing justice.
They should never have invited Stuart in – and Stuart should never have trusted them.
“A brilliantly assured psychological thriller that builds tension with such power and conviction, you will feel like you are there with them, fighting for a say.”
