the #obsession is starting

Presenting a stunning debut psychological thriller by former poisons expert Amanda Robson, Obsession is a dark, twisting tale of affairs gone wrong
He’s not your husband. He’s hers.

It starts out as a game on a campsite. Something to liven up a dull holiday with the kids. Who else would you go for, if you could? Just a normal married couple, talking about their fantasies. But once said, things cannot be unsaid. And what happens next will make you want to keep your mouth shut forever.
Carly and Rob. Jenni and Craig. Two couples, four friends. Betraying each other. Wanting each other.
All of them have access to prescription drugs through the medical practice where they work, and all of them are fighting their own demons.
But can any of them be trusted? And when the lies begin, can they ever be silenced?
Perfect for fans of TV’s Doctor Foster and The Affair, Obsession is a compelling debut that will leave readers guessing until the very last page.

Amanda attended the Faber novelwriting course, and is now a full-time author. Obsession is her first novel.
