<h2>From the #1 bestselling author of Breaking Point and winner of Crime Novel of the Year at the An Post Irish Book Awards.</h2>

‘Edel Coffey is like an Irish Jodi Picoult! In Her Place examines “the other woman” conundrum from two different perspectives. It’s propulsive, thought-provoking and unputdownable’


Who is the other woman? That’s for you to decide.

Ann devoted years to her mother’s care – and now she’s gone, Ann feels lost.

Justin is also grieving, but his wife is still alive. Deborah is in a coma and she doesn’t have long left.

When the two meet, they are instantly drawn to one another and, before long, they’ve fallen deeply in love.

Ann quickly moves in with Justin and his little girl, making them the perfect family. But just as Ann settles into her new life, Justin’s is turned upside down. Unexpectedly, his wife has survived. Deborah is coming home.

Neither knows what to do. But one thing is certain: Ann has earned the life Deborah left behind, and she plans to keep it . . .

‘Non-stop pace, a stellar example of dilemma-noir. Clever, fresh, dark and thought-provoking’


‘Goes right to the heart of human relationships. Emotionally complex, compelling and thought-provoking’


‘An incredible read of despair, love, hope and betrayal. I thoroughly enjoyed it’


‘A thought-provoking thriller with a brilliant premise’


‘Page-turning, twisty, captivating’
