Sometimes you have to kill the one you love
Treating a woman for post-natal depression, therapist Mel Porter discovers a shocking truth about herself. As she battles to separate truth from lies, she must confront the most dreadful choice a wife can ever make. Believe that her husband is a killer. Or that she is.
The woman claims to have murdered her own child. The confession turns out to be false but it starts a chain of events that leads to horrifying consequences for Mel. As each brick in the wall she has built around herself crumbles and falls away, a stark truth is revealed. Is she even the woman she thinks she is?
When an ambitious detective with secrets of her own arrests Mel on a charge of murder, her world descends into chaos. Memories she thought she could trust turn out to be unreliable. Her very sanity is questioned. And Jonathan asks for a divorce.
In court, facing a hostile lawyer’s harrowing questioning, Mel’s faith in herself reaches breaking point. Then the jury returns with its verdict and delivers a shocking conclusion to the trial.
How much of her perfect life can Mel still believe in? And how much is total fantasy? The answer could be the difference between life and death.
I am so glad I stumbled upon this blog tour and book. Maslen is a new author to me and I am wondering why I’ve never read one of his books. What if you found out you didn’t really know yourself at all? This fast paced thriller is suspenseful and keeps you guessing until the very end. His writing style connects you to his characters even when you have nothing in common with them. Their emotions pull on your emotions.
I honestly think I would give this more than five stars if I could. If you’re a fan of legal thrillers, twisty thrillers and being kept on your toes, you should get this on your TBR now.
