It happens to every mother.

One day, the daughter whose whole world you once were, becomes someone you barely know. And you don’t know the secrets she’s hiding.

One night, 15-year-old Olivia comes home late from a party she was strictly forbidden from going to, and she and her mother, Hannah, start arguing.

Soon Olivia speaks the words that every parent has heard from their teenage child: ‘I hate you. You’ve ruined my life. And I’m never speaking to you again.’

Olivia has never been an easy child, a sharp contrast to her easy-going, happy-go-lucky little sister.

But Hannah thinks Olivia’s outburst is the end of a normal family argument.

In fact, it’s only the beginning of a nightmare.

After one day of silence, Hannah thinks Olivia is taking a teenage sulk too far.

After two days, she starts to feel anxious that something more serious could be going on.

After a week, when her daughter still hasn’t spoken, Hannah knows that Olivia is hiding a bigger darkness – something that could threaten to tear their precious family apart…

The Argument is an unputdownable psychological thriller that asks how far we can push our families before they finally break.

Perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, The Woman in the Window, and The Silent Patient.
