On a stifling hot day, former journalist Dee Doran finds the crumpled body of her friend at the roadside. Katie and her little boy, Jake, have been a light in Dee’s otherwise desolate life – now a woman is dead and a child is missing.

Katie has been keeping secrets for a long time. Years earlier, she fell for the wrong person. But he was in love with someone else; who he couldn’t have but couldn’t keep away from. When jealousy and desire spilled over into murder Katie hid the truth, and has been pretending ever since.

As Dee assists the police with their enquiries she’s compelled to investigate too. She realises Katie wasn’t who she claimed to be. Lies are catching up. Stories are unravelling. Revenge is demanded and someone must pay the price. The question is: who?

Don’t miss this explosive crime thriller perfect for fans for Alex Marwood and Fiona Barton.

MY REVIEW 

Dee Doran finds the body of her neighbour and friend, Katie Hope. A victim of a hit and run…..but where is her 2 year old son, Jake?

Dee, a retired journalist, uses her skills to try and find out what happened and to find little Jake.

What she finds out is that Katie, her friend, had secrets. She was not the person she thought she was.

Told in the present day and flashbacks to the past, this is a gripping, twisty thriller that has you hooked for the very start. 

Thank you to Tracy and Compulsive Readers for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour,  for the promotional materials and a free copy of the ebook. This is my honest, unbiased review.
