The Custody Battle

Ellie Monago

I’ll do anything to keep my daughter. But so will my husband…

As I look across the courtroom at the man I once shared everything with, I can’t believe it’s come to this. I can see in his eyes: he is here to destroy me. But I can’t let him have our little girl.

We swore to keep our divorce civil, for Lola. We agreed to put her first and keep her safe. Then the lawyers got involved, and all our promises went up in smoke.

Greg is turning Lola against me, lying to the judge to make me sound like a terrible mother. I deny it. But my stomach sinks when I see the anger on his face. At a nod from his lawyer, Greg risks everything. And reveals the worst thing I have ever done.

My heart pounds in my chest. Because Greg and I both have pasts. He doesn’t know I know his deep, dark secrets. But what am I willing to risk—who am I willing to become—for my daughter’s future? And could it wind up destroying us all?

A completely gripping dark domestic suspense novel about a family tearing themselves apart, perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Sally Hepworth.
