Rachel Masters, una manager abituata a ottenere ciò che vuole, viene chiamata a riorganizzare l'unico settore in crisi di un'azienda inglese. Per Rachel il successo è molto più importante dell'amicizia e questo significa che la vita di Paula, Chloe, Sarah, Amira, Ewan e Charlie si annuncia complicata. Convinti di non essere solo colleghi, ma anche amici, sotto il nuovo regime dominato dalla competizione è dallo stress i sei devono ammettere che quasi non si conoscono. Mentre Rachel li gioca l'uno contro l'altro, ognuno di loro scopre di avere qualcosa da difendere e anche qualcosa da nascondere. Negli Stati Uniti la notizia di un orrendo omicidio diffusa dai media britannici ricorda alla dottoressa Anne Cater, psichiatra infantile, uno dei suoi primi casi. Aveva fatto parte dell'equipe incaricata di aiutare due fratellini orribilmente maltrattati dai genitori. Sono passati moltissimi anni e ora Anne si domanda se ai tempi fosse stato fatto abbastanza. È chiaro che queste due storie sono correlate, ma come?

I have to admit to having struggled with "When She Was Bad" from the very beginning, which concerned me a little as many trusted and honest reading friends had recommended it.

Although this book has been marketed under the genre Thriller, to my mind it’s not. It’s more like suspense, family drama.
