The new gripping psychological thriller from the bestselling author The Date and The Sister
MEET THE WALSH FAMILY
Lucy: Mother. Wife. Falling to pieces . . .
Aidan: Father. Husband. In too deep . . .
Connor: Son. Friend. Can never tell the truth . . .
Everyone in this family is hiding something, but one secret will turn out to be the deadliest of all . . .
Will this family ever recover when the truth finally comes out?
A book which keeps it’s secrets well hidden!
Lucy, Aiden and their elder son Connor each find themselves in an impossible situation ; they are each convinced that they – and only they – are fully responsible so, naturally, keep their fears to themselves. When the truth finally emerges, who will be left standing?
What a cleverly crafted story! I always admire writers who can produce a book such as this, where there is so much going on but the reader is aware that there is still an awful lot to find out! At the very beginning, I was a little puzzled but it didn’t take long for me to pick up the thread of the story and from then on it was a compulsive read and when it wasn’t in my hands, it was playing on my mind. Did I work it all out? Not a hope! This is so smartly written with everything tightly woven together it shows what an awesome talent Louise Jensen has. Plenty of surprises along the way – this author knows how to keep her cards close to her chest and only reveal details in a timely manner, and her timing is spot on! Gripping doesn’t seem to even begin to cover this one; my attention was seized and nothing was letting it go until the very final page. A very impressive novel, one which I’m very happy to give both my recommendation and a full five stars!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original an unbiased review.
