What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Mine by Susi Fox, read by Ainslie McGlynn.

The baby in the cot is not your baby.

You wake up alone after an emergency caesarean, desperate to see your child. But when you are shown the small infant, a terrible thought seizes you: this baby is not mine.

They say you're delusional.

No one believes you. Not the nurses, your father or even your own husband. They say you're confused. Dangerous.

But you're a doctor - you know how easily mistakes can be made. Or even deliberate ones.

Everyone is against you; do you trust your instincts? Or is your traumatic past clouding your judgement? You know only one thing.

You must find your baby.

Listen to a sample

How far will Sasha have to go to prove what she knows is the truth? You will be desperate to know how this dark, disturbing tale ends.

The Sun

I raced through, unable to stop reading until I found out what was really going on. Gripping and thought provoking about motherhood and mental health. I loved it

Laura Marshall, bestselling author of FRIEND REQUEST

Utterly compelling and brilliantly confounding. A novel where all possible explanations are suspect - even your own

The Golden Child

Digs deep to examine the dark side of motherhood - mental illness, failure, violent thoughts - and refuses to look away. Mine throws into question the sanity of the narrator, the trustworthiness of doctors and the reader's understanding of right and wrong

The Guardian

Taps into a deep, subliminal fear. I was so absorbed that when a friend tapped me on the shoulder, I jumped out of my skin

Jane Shemilt

Susi Fox has crafted a paranoia-inducing read

Women's Own

Gripping, creepy and nail-biting

Our Tiny Useless Hearts

Powerful, insightful and all too believable. Not knowing what is real and what isn't is the most frightening experience of all

Where the Trees Were

MINE is a true nerve-shredder, drawing you in until you're virtually screaming for resolution. Highly recommended. Susi Fox is a bright new star

Perfect Remains

Chilling and suspenseful, Mine bristles with paranoia, keeping you guessing until the very end. A gripping read

Karen Perry

Compelling, dark, and claustrophobic. The setting is oppressive - a hospital that is the stuff of nightmares - and Fox's medical background lends credibility and fascinating detail that renders it all the more unsettling. I couldn't sleep until I finished it . . . and then I couldn't sleep at all

The Ruin

Riveting. MINE perfectly encapsulates the tension between intuition and intellect in the vortex of anxiety after childbirth
