I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange honest review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Gaby Mortimer is the woman who has it all. But everything changes when she finds a body on the common near her home. She’s shaken and haunted by the image of the lifeless young woman, and frightened that the killer, still at large, could strike again. Before long, the police have a lead. The evidence points to a very clear suspect. One Gaby never saw coming . . . Full of twists and turns, this is a dark and suspenseful psychological thriller that will make you secondguess everything. Because you can never be too sure about anything, especially when it comes to murder.
This book is so delightfully British. As an American and an anglo-phile, this was very appealing to me.
That being said this book also has some substance. I’ve seen reviews that compare it with Gone Girl but I don’t think that it’s quite as good. It’s not as well crafted and the end is a bit of a stretch (I thought so anyway, I’d be interested in hearing other’s takes on it.) I love suspense novels, but I have the worst time reviewing them because I hate to give anything away.
This book is worth the read if you enjoy books such as Gone Girl or even a good Agatha Christie novel. Nice light airplane reading.
