Sharon Bolton’s best book yet. Prepare to have your emotions put through the wringer then stomped on with army boots.
“What’s the worst thing your best friend could do to you?…How long before revenge becomes irresistible?With no reason to go on living, why shouldn’t you turn your darkest thoughts into deeds?
So now what’s the worst thing you could do to your best friend?”
The three main characters take a turn at narrating the story and each one has their own version of the misery of the past three years. Entwined with the current drama of the search for a missing child, their stories keep the reader well and truly hooked.
As usual with this author the book is beautifully written and at times the description of the islands distracted me from the plot. I feel as though I’ve spent the past few days in the Falklands even though it’s a place I’d previously only heard of in news bulletins.
Thank you to the publisher for the proof copy to review.
