Perfect for fans of The Rumour, The Silent Patient and The Suspect.
A Labyrinth of Secrets and Lies!
Twists and turns, a little bit creepy – this is a cracking read!
Anna is dead. Her husband, their children and her best friend are devastated. But what really happened? That’s what we’re here to find out but, trust me, it’s not that straightforward. Following the lives of husband David, both children as well as best friend Vicky, we discover a labyrinth of secrets and lies – which to believe?
This is a beautifully structured story, reeling the reader in to understand and sympathise with the main character’s plight. She spins a wonderful tale, and I was drawn in from the word go. But how did Anna die? No-one seems to know the full story, but as we travel back to when she and Vicky first met at school, we discover so much about both of them, but it’s clear there is something we don’t know. As the book unfolds, there is some very clever writing turning us first one way and then another but I had no idea exactly where it was all leading until it was spelled out clearly in the last few pages. Wow, what a read! Masterfully told and riveting throughout, this is absolutely a five star read, and a sparkling one at that.
My thanks to publisher Aria for my copy via NetGalley, and especially to Vicky Joss for my spot in this Blog Tour. As always, all opinions are completely hones an entirely my own.
