But she knows things about Karen. Her friends, her personal life. Things no patient should know.

And Karen is starting to wonder if she should have let her in . . .

A fantastic, twisted story
Adam Hamdy
Before I Let You In is a taut, scary thriller, but it's so much more than that, too: it's also about the choices women make and the judgment they receive - about the way they mother, their sex lives and their psychology. I loved the fantastically unreliable narrator and the well-drawn cast of women. Brilliantly done!
Gillian McAllister
A fabulously addictive read with an amazing twist!
