After escaping London and a career that nearly destroyed her, Justine plans to spend her days doing as little as possible in her beautiful home in Devon.
But soon after the move, her daughter Ellen starts to withdraw when her new best friend, George, is unfairly expelled from school. Justine begs the head teacher to reconsider, only to be told that nobody’s been expelled – there is, and was, no George.
Then the anonymous calls start: a stranger, making threats that suggest she and Justine share a traumatic past and a guilty secret – yet Justine doesn’t recognise her voice. When the caller starts to talk about three graves – two big and one small, to fit a child – Justine fears for her family’s safety.
If the police can’t help, she’ll have to eliminate the danger herself, but first she must work out who she’s supposed to be…
Firstly thanks to Hodder and Bookbridgr for sending me a review copy .This is the first of her books I’ve read I believe .I’ve heard rave reviews not just for this one but for her back catalogue of titles .
The cover and title really set the tone for the book capturing a menacing dark premise .
I picked this up Friday afternoon and didn’t put it down till midnight when I finished ..obviously had to pause to do mummy things but you get my meaning …this book will have you hooked .
I wanted to be with the characters the minute I stopped reading ,I needed to know more .
You doubt everyone and become as paranoid and on edge as Justine and her family does.
Its gripping and very tense and I look forward to discovering more of her books.
I haven’t read a psychological thriller in a while and this fitted the need of darkness and disturbance perfectly !
