This story twists and turns and keeps you guessing right up to the final chapters. And, even then,it delivers a jaw-dropping, shocking twist in the epilogue. Fabulous narration, a great plot, a smashing cast of characters and terrifyingly believable. I loved Clare Mackintosh's first novel, I Let You Go, and this story is every bit as good. 10/10.

My first look at a Clare Mackintosh book and I’ve come away very, very impressed. At first I felt as if the book wasn’t quite going to really take off in any great way but the time taken to paint sheer normality of modern family life in London made what was to happen as the story unfolded all the more meaningful. Two very strong and deep female lead characters, one a normal working mum and the other a discredited but dedicated police constable are given genuine depth and persona.
The narration by Rachel Atkins is extremely strong, clear and suited to the material. She smoothly moves the story forwards as it gradually unfolds and reveals its twists and turns. In summary this is a deeply satisfying, well produced thriller with characters that are rendered with detailed clarity and warmth by the author. What happens to them matters. What happens to them is both frightening and credible with plenty of twists and guessing games along the way.
I have no qualms whatsoever about recommending this one!

I was absolutely amazed on this novel, a great theme, well played on the plot structure, and with a constant need of needing what comes next. Most of all Clare makes these characters come to life in such an epic way. Also, Rachel Atkins delivers a Narration that just makes you go thru it all. I Loved it in so many ways!
I had trouble finishing this book at first. I could not connect to the characters, but i have kept on listening. In the end, it was worth the time.
