About the book


My family said he killed my mother. They lied…

I was just a little girl, fast asleep in my stroller, the day my mother was killed. I don’t remember anything about the sunny day that turned so dark.

She’d be so happy for me now, twenty years later, with my dream job as a photographer, and I’m sure she’d love my new boyfriend, Gabriel. But all my happiness vanishes in a heartbeat when the man from our past walks towards me, his eyes on me for just a fraction too long.

I recognise his face from the picture in the papers. He killed my mother.

I try to run but he wants me to listen. He says that he is innocent, and that my family have been lying to me for years.

My father and sister tell me to stay away. They remind me that because of him my mother never got to tuck me in at night or ease me through my first heartbreak. Gabriel says he could be dangerous. But when he is found dead, I am shaken to my core. Who needed to keep him quiet?

I won’t feel safe until I find out what he wanted to tell me. But when I find that my father has lied about the past and Gabriel has hidden photos of my mother under his bed, I realise I can’t trust anyone. I want the truth. But if I find it, will my life be in danger?

An absolutely addictive read that will have you racing through the pages and questioning everything you thought you knew about your family. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Lisa Jewell and Shari Lapena

My Review

I started this one knowing exactly what had happened.  And then I read a little more and went what.  And then I had no idea what had happened.  Told in dual timelines, the past is narrated by Lori and the present is narrated by Jess, Lori’s daughter.  Lori was murdered and no one was charged for the crime.  Then the most likely suspect tracks down Jess because he has something she needs to know about the murder.

This was a rollercoaster read for me.  Every time I wrapped my head around new facts, there were more new facts.  Filled with twists I never saw coming, I was always on my toes reading this one and raced through it to find out the ending.
