As he continues showing me their incredible penthouse apartment, I have a terrible feeling about the woman behind closed doors. But I can't risk losing this job – not if I want to keep my darkest secret safe . . .

It's hard to find an employer who doesn't ask too many questions about my past. So I thank my lucky stars that the Garricks miraculously give me a job, cleaning their stunning penthouse with views across the city and preparing fancy meals in their shiny kitchen. I can work here for a while, stay quiet until I get what I want. It's almost perfect. But I still haven't met Mrs Garrick, or seen inside the guest bedroom. I'm sure I hear her crying. I notice spots of blood around the neck of her white nightgowns when I'm doing laundry. And one day I can't help but knock on the door. When it gently swings open, what I see inside changes everything....

That's when I make a promise. After all, I've done this before. I can protect Mrs. Garrick while keeping my own secrets locked up safe. Douglas Garrick has done wrong. He is going to pay. It's simply a question of how far I'm willing to go....

An unbelievably twisty read that will have you glued to the pages late into the night. Anyone who loves The Woman in the Window, The Wife Between Us and The Girl on the Train will be completely hooked!

Editorial Reviews

"Freida McFadden's 'The Housemaid's Secret' is a thrilling masterpiece that continues to deliver heart-pounding suspense and breathtaking twists. As an ardent fan of the genre and McFadden's work, I can affirm that this sequel doesn't disappoint.

Millie's character is as complex and compelling as ever, drawing readers deeper into her enigmatic world. The story unfolds in three sections, each narrated by a key character, providing a multi-layered perspective on the unfolding events. This format adds depth and intrigue to the plot.

While some may find certain twists predictable, McFadden manages to keep the narrative engaging and full of suspense. Millie's relentless determination to uncover the truth and protect those in need is both admirable and relatable.

'The Housemaid's Secret' explores themes of privilege, dysfunction, and the consequences of secrecy. It's a rollercoaster ride of emotions and revelations that leaves readers eagerly turning the pages.

If you enjoyed 'The Housemaid,' this sequel is a must-read, offering more of the suspense and thrilling storytelling that made the first book a hit. McFadden continues to prove herself as a standout author in the thriller genre, and I eagerly anticipate more of her work." - Starry Ferry Books
