Twelve years ago Finn’s girlfriend disappeared.
He told the police the truth about that night.
Just not quite the whole truth.
Now Finn has moved on.
But his past won’t stay buried
Thanks to Isabel at HQ for sending me this novel.
The novel alternates between past and present, then between Finn and his missing girlfriend, Layla. As the story develops, the truth about Layla’s disappearance comes out, and it’s creepy as hell.
I took it with me for a trip to uni last week but only got a little bit read, then on Sunday, I sat down to read, and read the final 3/4 of it. The complicated relationship between Finn, Layla and Ellen, and the slow drip of pressure on Finn is gripping. Harry and Ruth are there as brilliant support and Finn’s sounding board. Their developing relationship is a gentle balance against the psychological pressure of the main plot.
I received this mid-January and was trying to keep my hands off it until March but couldn’t. I recommend this psychological thriller to anyone who enjoys them.
