Bywgraffiad Awdur:
Rob Gittins is the longest serving scriptwriter on EastEnders, having written over 200 episodes of the soap opera. In recognition for his work on EastEnders, Rob received an Outstanding Achievement gong at the 2015 British Soap Awards. He has also scripted for Casualty, The Bill, Emmerdale and Heartbeat and has won many other awards for his work. This is his fourth novel. Praise for his previous novels: Gimme Shelter (2013) – 'Visceral, strongly visual and beautifully structured… powerful, quirky characters.' Andrew Taylor, Winner of the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger Award. The Poet and the Private Eye (2014) – 'Rob Gittins's compelling novel values truth above what is simply true – at the same time as declaring that death really does have no dominion.' (T. James Jones, former Archdruid and translator of Under Milk Wood.)
Gwybodaeth Bellach:
A psychological thriller which studies the male desire to possess, control and watch his beloved in the most intimate of spaces.

Jack Connolly gradually infiltrates the private spaces of his wife's life placing gadgets (surveillance equipment) in the bedroom, living room, motor bike, phone, computer, mobile to capture her private conversations and record her emotional responses to the tests he puts her through. His obsession spirals out of control, inexorably leading to the destruction of his relationship and his life.

The novel, triggered by the short story 'Wakefield' by Nathaniel Hawthorne, digs into issues of trust and loss at a disturbing level.
