The Perfect Father

The Perfect Father

From the author of Unfollow Me comes a dark, surprising suspense of toxic relationships and family secrets . . .

The perfect husband…
After a difficult pregnancy, Esther is grateful that her forward-thinking husband Robin offers to put his career on hold so that she can return to the job she loves.

The perfect father…
Robin flourishes in his new role of stay-at-home parent, but Esther finds leaving her daughter behind to go to work more challenging than she’d thought, and soon the imbalance in their relationship brings old tensions to the surface.

A perfect lie?
Then one day Esther arrives home from work to find Robin and Riley are missing. As the police investigate their disappearance, it becomes clear that nothing about this modern-day family is what it seems…

Was Robin the perfect father everyone thought he was? Or was it all a perfect lie?
