Written by Gillian McAllister




The compulsive thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Everything but the Truth and Anything You Do Say. You’d trust your sister with your life. But should you?

The police say she’s guilty.

She insists she’s innocent.

She’s your sister.

You loved her.

You trusted her.

But they say she killed the person you care about most.








Vivid, Intense, and So Worth Reading!   5 stars


If you like a book to obsess about and get your heart rate up then look no further – it’s here!

This is the story of two sisters and a court case; one a defendant, one a witness. Each day, they sit in court watching and listening to the details unfold in front of them. Guilty or innocent?

I’m quite shattered after reading this, finished in a day. I struggled to lay it aside even to make a coffee – and, believe me, I drink a lot of coffee! This is a compulsive, compelling read and I changed my opinion on the possible verdict with almost every turn of a page. It is an amazingly well plotted book, giving nothing away whilst throwing up possibilities here, there and all over the place. I’m not surprised that the author is part of the legal profession; the courtroom scenes are vibrant, impressive and put the reader firmly in the place of a voyeur; when it comes to writing she has truly studied her craft.

The details are tantalisingly revealed and I feel as if I have lived and breathed the very same air as the characters. Wow! Different, challenging and so, so surprising – this is a read which will play with your emotions due solely to the nature of the case. As an added bonus there’s a labrador – which you all know by now always warms my heart but, to be fair, he doesn’t put in an appearance until I was already smitten with the story! And the outcome? Well, obviously you have to find that out for yourself but I was shocked to my core. Awesome, stunning and I cannot recommend this novel highly enough to do it justice.

My grateful thanks to Michael Joseph – an imprint of Penguin Books, for my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
