Author: Henriette Gyland

I wrote my first book when I was ten, a tale of two orphan sisters running away to Egypt fortunately to be adopted by a perfect family they meet on the Orient Express. I suspect I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but was too in awe of the Great Names on my parents’ bookshelves to think that this was a career I could possibly pursue. Growing up in Northern Denmark, among intensely practical people, this was far too “flighty” anyway, and it’s not like I ever enjoyed writing essays.

When five-year-old Helen Stephens witnesses her mother’s murder, her whole world comes crumbling down. Rejected by her extended family, Helen is handed over to child services and learns to trust no-one but herself. Twenty years later, her mother’s killer is let out of jail, and Helen swears vengeance.

Peek-a-boo I see you…

Jason Moody runs a halfway house, desperate to distance himself from his father’s gangster dealings. But when Helen shows up on his doorstep, he decides to dig into her past, and risks upsetting some very dangerous people.

As Helen begins to question what really happened to her mother, Jason is determined to protect her. But Helen is getting too close to someone who’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth hidden…
