About the book:

Loving wife. Caring nurse. Liar.

You trust her with your life… She has a deadly secret.

In hospital, lives begin and end every day.

The doctors and nurses work round the clock to keep their patients breathing, yet death is part of their routine.

When the police arrive in the brightly lit corridors, asking for pretty, young, Nurse Shaw, staff and patients start talking.

The say Sarah Shaw’s husband has been murdered. They’d only been married for a few short months.

The police want to know where Sarah was that night. And why the medicine went missing from the hospital a few days before.

As William Shaw’s complicated past unravels it’s clear that Sarah has secrets of her own. But as she delivers pills in paper cups with a stiff smile and shaking hands, her patients want to know, is she a killer, or is her life in danger too?

An addictive psychological thriller that will have you glued to the pages until the final shocking twist. Perfect for fans of K.L. Slater, Shari Lapena and Clare Mackintosh.

My Review:

A slow burn mystery with characters that are hard to like, but a few deaths I needed to know who the killer was.  I know in most thrillers, the characters are harboring secrets, but wow, the characters in this one definitely had more than their share of them.

This one will definitely keep you guessing.  I got a little bogged down in the story when it wasn’t focused on the police, but really enjoyed both Nick and Charlie’s investigation styles.

I flipped back and forth between the book and audiobook and thought Sarah Durham was engaging as the narrator.

If you love slow burn murder mysteries, then you should pick this one up.
