Eye of the Beholder

by Emma Bamford

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, how much can you trust what you see?

When Maddy Wight is hired to ghostwrite the memoir of world-renowned cosmetic surgeon Angela Reynolds, she jumps at the chance to get her career back on track. But the deeper she digs, the more elusive the surgeon becomes. Is there something hidden beneath the surface of the kaleidoscopic beauty industry that Angela doesn't want to reveal?

Confined to Angela's glass-walled house in the Scottish Highlands, Maddy cannot shake the feeling of being watched. As objects go missing, handprints appear on the windows and a stranger is seen lurking in the grounds, she finds herself drawn ever closer to Scott, Angela's enigmatic business partner, who makes a sudden appearance and whose mercurial moods change as quickly as the darkening moors outside.

Returning to London once the book is finished, Maddy is excited for their future together. But her dreams are shattered when news of Scott's death shatters the celebrations at the book's launch party.

Which is why, months later and lost in a fog of grief, Maddy is completely blindsided when she sees Scott entering a tube station just in front of her. It can't be him, can it? After all, Scott is dead...or is he?
