In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura witnesses a brutal attack.
She and her boyfriend Kit call the police, and in that moment, four lives change forever.
Fifteen years on, Laura and Kit live in fear.
And while Laura knows she was right to speak out, she also knows that you can never see the whole picture: something is always hidden… something she never could have guessed.
Our reviewer was impressed:
This is a contemporary slow-burning suspense thriller that flits in time between 2015 and 2000. It captures the complexity of a couple’s relationship, which initially appears solid and balanced, but as the story progresses and you scratch beneath the surface, it isn’t what it first appears to be.
The writing has a means of holding you and drawing you into its nuances. It gets you thinking and cleverly captures how remarkable personal interactions and relationships are. Much is told in the first person, which lends itself to the character’s personal and often unreliable interpretation of events around them. It allows us to see how we filter what we see and hear to our own preferences and interpretations. It is realistic amidst the simmering personal devastation that is experienced. In all, everything about this book atmospherically resonates, so that there is a reading afterburn long after finishing the book, which is always a great effect to have and the sign of a solid, good read.
