A gripping, cleverly plotted novel with a cast of characters that will stay with me for a long time.
“When lawyer Lily marries Ed, she’s determined to make a fresh start. To leave the secrets of the past behind.
But then she meets Joe. A convicted murderer who reminds Lily of someone she once knew, and who she becomes obsessed with freeing.
But is he really innocent? And who is she to judge?”
This story drew me in from the first page and kept me guessing right to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. There are so many things going on but the writer’s style and the structure of the book helped me to keep up with all the various strands of the plot.
All the characters are described and developed in a way that brings them to life and this made me care what happened to every one of them.
A fair bit longer than most of the crime thrillers I’ve read recently, but it’s hard to see how anything could have been cut without losing a vital part of the story.
Recommended if you like a book that makes you question the characters’ motives and behaviours, and your own reactions to them.
Thank you to the publisher via Netgalley for the advance copy e-book to review.
