Jessica Mayhew is a sharp, successful therapist with a
thriving practice and loving family. But the arrival of a new client, actor
Gwydion Morgan, coincides with a turbulent moment in her life: her husband has
just confessed to a one-night stand with a younger woman. Gwydion, the son of a famous
stage director, is good-looking and talented but mentally fragile,
tormented by an intriguing phobia. When Jessica receives a frantic call warning
that he is suicidal, she decides to make a house call.
The Morgans live in a grand cliff-top mansion overlooking the
rocky Welsh coast. It seems to be a remote paradise, but there’s something
sinister about it too: Jessica learns that the family’s former au pair drowned
in the bay under mysterious circumstances.
In her quest to help Gwydion, to
whom she’s grown increasingly attached, Jessica becomes ensnared in the Morgan
family mystery, which soon becomes an explosive public scandal—one that puts
her directly in harm’s way. Meanwhile, Jessica is doing her best to keep her
marriage and family together, but her growing attraction to Gwydion is
impossible to ignore.
Smart, stylish, and suspenseful, The House on the
Cliff announces the arrival of a winning female protagonist in Jessica
Mayhew and an exciting new crime writer in Charlotte Williams.
