Clare Mackintosh is the Queen of Plot Twists.
And if you haven't read Ms Mackintosh before - her first and second novels (I Let You Go and I See You) are both brilliant, you're in for a treat. I was looking forward to reading this book for some time and then all of a sudden the publication date had passed, the book reached number 1 on the Sunday Times Bestseller List, and I still hadn't read it. So I was glad to finally sit down with this book.
The story follows Anna and the tragedy that has filled her life to date. Just as she seems to be putting the suicides of both her parents behind her, she is haunted by her past. Everyone is a suspect; Agatha Christie would be proud at the number of red herrings. I was on the edge of my (very comfortable reading) seat until the very last page.
I feel compelled to read the book again to marvel at the intricate stitch work that is Ms Mackintosh's plotting!
