A riveting read from start to finish.
The book is told from three the perspective female characters:
- Evie - 16 years earlier she accidentally killed her father and she has rebuilt her life and comes home to find her husband dead from a gunshot wound.
- DD - A senior policewoman who first questioned Evie all those years ago.
- Flora - The survivor of a violent kidnapping, and now works as DD's confidential informant.
From the very first chapter I was hooked. Why did Evie act so unexpectedly when she found her husband's body?
The book looks at the old case of Evie's father in more detail. DD is adamant Evie isn't going to get away again. Yet, when her informant Flora recognises Evie's husband, there is more than meets the eye in both deaths. Everyone is harbouring secrets. Flora's story is heartbreaking, her courage seeps through with her every action - I hope to see more of her in the future!
I read this in as close to one sitting as possible, with meals and sleep getting in the way.
A brilliant book. And if you like Karin Slaughter and Gillian Flynn do not hesitate to read Never Tell.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Thank you so much the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary electronic copy in return for an honest review.
