"It's phenomenal, super-twisty and, incredibly, even better than I Let You Go and I See You." (Jill Mansell)
"Brilliant. Tense and surprising but heartbreaking and sensitively written.... I expect no less from Clare but she seems to get better with each novel." (Gillian McAllister)
"One word - wow! Compelling, twisty and wickedly good, I loved it!" (Alice Feeney)

Twists and turns

Knowing the story was full of twists and turns I was looking for them round every corner. I spotted most but not all of them, and not the two biggest. It was fun.

A Real Maze of a Thriller

Rarely have I read a book with quite so many twists and turns, particularly ones that I did not see coming. I will say that for the first hour or two of the book I was feeling a bit dubious about the mother's presence as the blurb describes it but it's well done in the end . . . sneaky, sneaky Clare.

The characters, particularly Murray, a retired police detective are given a warmly authentic feel and the key relationships are built with some considerable care. Told from varying points of view the story repeatedly tempts you into drawing conclusions but then frequently knocks them down. It's very clever writing and in my view her best to date.

Gemma Whelan is of course a high quality narrator and she produces a performance that seals the deal for another five star Mackintosh release.

This is a high quality thriller with strong characters, relationships and plot lines. If, like me, you feel a little dubious about the direction it's taking early on stick with it and if you do get invested in the characters be prepared for a couple of seriously heart rending moments.

Disappointing... slow and just not that good

Really looked forward to the release of this book but was genuinely disappointed. Really really slow in the beginning, so much so that I almost gave up three times. Then picked up a little but just not a good read (listen). A very forgettable book. Didn’t like the majority of characters, and found the plot quite dull too. I wouldn’t recommend this book. It’s not awful... it’s just below average...
