Someone who quietly, maybe even unwittingly, gathers together knowledge of the people she?s there to serve - the ones who don?t notice her, the ones who consider themselves to be important.There?s a fine line between loyalty and betrayal. And when someone like Christine Butcher is pushed to their limit, she might just become the most dangerous person in the room . . .The twisty, enthralling new novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of Disclaimer.'Poised to establish herself as a big name' TelegraphLook around you.
