London school librarian Lizzie Carter, the heroine of this absorbing tale of obsession from British author Durrant (Under Your Skin), is devastated to learn from Police Constable Morrow that her husband of just a year and a half, artist Zach Hopkins, has died in a car crash in Cornwall. A year later, Lizzie visits the scene of the fatal accident, where on the roadside she discovers flowers accompanied by a card decorated with hand-drawn hearts and signed "Xenia." When Lizzie investigates, she finds evidence that Zach may still be alive, and that much of what he told her about his past appears to have been fabricated. She turns to Morrow for help, but Morrow dismisses Lizzie's suspicions as symptoms of grief. In the manner of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, entries from Zach's computer diary alternate with Lizzie's thoughts about events as they are happening. Durrant steadily builds suspense up to the unexpected and thoroughly satisfying conclusion. Agent: Gráinne Fox, Fletcher & Co.. (May)
