HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Carol Wyer is already a well established author of romance and wit so this did seem quite a massive jump to write a straight talking psychological thriller, but wow did it work! Detective Inspector Robyn Carter has had more than her own share of tragedy and is coming to the end of sick leave after the death of her husband. Although this DI certainly makes an impression in this novel, I don’t think she is still running on full steam and feel she will become quite a formidable character as the series goes on. She gets a pre warning from her boss as she returns to work which gives you the feel that this DI, who wants to roll her sleeves up with the rest of her team, will be quite a sassy lady.
From the start of this book it throws you in to an emotional turmoil. A child has to go where a parent takes them, so when eight year old Alice’s mum Christina moves in with a wealthy widower and his two older children, she wants nothing to spoil it. When terrible events take place one night Christina is told to leave and take her daughter with her. No-one will listen to this brave little girl, well only Mr. Big Ears her stuffed rabbit and so far I felt he had given Alice pretty sound advice!
Oh wow what an emotional start you just want to throw your arms round this brave little girl but what you feel the most is anger. Well bottle that because this is how she will always feel now. And twenty years in the future she is ready to release it onto those that caused her pain. Alice isn’t Alice any more but she isn’t the only one that has grown up to tell lies.
The way in which Carol Wyer writes determines the pace that you read this novel, a bit like a conductor of words rather than music, some gentle calming moments and others angry and loud but put together and it really is a masterpiece. I am already so looking forward to more of this series, a superb start.
