Summary

What if you began to suspect your child of an unspeakable crime?
One night changed everything. A father murdered in his bed. A mother beaten almost to death. A daughter who claims she knew nothing about her boyfriend's murderous plans. But is she telling the truth?
Hanna can't remember the details of what happened that traumatic night; she barely survived the brutal assault that left her a widow. However, if she is to keep her husband's killer in jail, she knows she has to try. But Hanna hadn't realised that those memories may cause her to question everything she thought she knew about her daughter....

Critic reviews

"(A) novel about family, emotional wounds and blind love.... Treadway's book is an excellent exploration of the agony that often accompanies parenthood." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Treadway paints a devastating portrait of a family torn apart from both the outside and within." (Publishers Weekly)
"An intricately plotted psychological thriller...the story of a mother trying to figure out what happened to her family and why." (Chicago Tribune)
"Treadway has created her characters nicely and she portrays a mother's steadfast love well. Verdict: enticing." (Herald Sun, Townsville Bulletin, Weekend)
"A riveting read." (Sunday Canberra Times
"If you were one of the millions who were captivated by the deftly plotted guessing game that was Gone Girl - then treat yourself to this equally beguiling and just as pitch-black thriller.... Great characters, a smart plot, full of heart and feeling. Brilliant." (Sunday Mirror)

awful narrator (sorry)

The narrator really ruined this book for me, it was read like a childs story. awful awful stuff. I only continued to listen because I found the story very good.

My advice -
read the book, it's a good story

Best read/listen in a long time. Excellent!

I loved this. Compelling story of family dynamics and a terrible crime. I absolutely devoured it and listened at every opportunity. The characters (including Abby) are very well drawn and the tale entirely plausible. This enhanced the shocking nature of the events. I see that one reviewer disliked the narration. I can't stick with poor narration and return books if it doesn't work for me. I often struggle with books narrated by Americans, especially American women, who often have a high pitched nasal style. However, in this case, I found Katherine Fenton's narration to be excellent. I look forward to reading/listening to other books by this author.
