If there are two sides to every story, someone is always lying…
Jack: Three words to describe my wife: Beautiful. Ambitious. Unforgiving.
Anna: I only need one word to describe my husband: Liar.
When a woman is murdered in Blackdown village, newsreader Anna Andrews is reluctant to cover the case. Anna’s ex-husband, DCI Jack Harper, is suspicious of her involvement, until he becomes a suspect in his own murder investigation.
Someone is lying, and some secrets are worth killing to keep.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
This is a little beauty! Things were brittle enough between newsreader Anna Andrews and her ex-husband DCI Jack Harper before they found themselves working on the same murder case, where they both knew the victim. It isn’t long before Harper finds himself being set up as the murderer and it isn’t long before victim number 2 appears, another blast from the past for them both. The story falls back to the school days of Anna, fitting in and her friends with Jack Harper a couple of years older and in the background.
This is a busy book with so much going off in the past especially the need to be in with the popular girls. Every character is so vivid that one way or another it will bring back school days to you. The story continues in the present day with Harper’s sidekick and partner acting more than a little strange. This is one harrassed man from every direction though most of it he deserves.
The chapters are set out so that you get to see things through Harper’s eyes and thoughts and then through Andrews’ each headed His and Her. I don’t think between them they can tell a true sentence. There are some very unforgettable characters in this story both in the past and in present day. I was blown away at the end. This lady really knows how to reel you in. Loved every twisted second of this story!
I wish to thank NetGalley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
