A five year old boy, Jacob, dies in a hit and run accident on a rainy afternoon in November. The boy was everything to his mother. His death leaves her devastated.
In charge of this investigation are a Bristol CID team, Ray Stevens and Kate Evans. While investigating, Ray and Kate find out that Jenna has secrets of her own and has been lying during the entire investigation. The case is closed.
A work from home sculptor, Jenna Gray runs away from Bristol after the accident to a small town on the Welsh coast to escape her troubled past and to start life afresh, little did she know that the case is re-investigated and the police are on her trail.
What secrets is Jenna hiding? Who is the culprit? Is there more to Jenna than what she is showing?
I can’t remember the number of times I have gasped and shouted while reading this book! Set in two parts, the first part starts slow with Jenna narrating the story and we learn more about Ray Stevens on the professional and personal front. The first part is slow but enough to keep you engaged.
We imagine a different scenario in the first part and bam! the second part blows our mind like anything! Unexpected twists and turns make us gasp making us want for more page after page.
This is hands down one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time! The word building, plot building is excellent with occasional screams of, ‘I really didn’t see that coming!’ The characterization is superb with each character given its due!
I love a good psychological thriller and this one won me over! A very smartly written book! My emotions were all over the place! Very well executed! Don’t miss out on this one. This was the debut book of the Author and what an impressive and a phenomenal debut!
Rating: 5/5 (Wish I could give more)
