The police say it was suicide.

Anna says it was murder.

They’re both wrong.

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.

Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to question her parents’ deaths. But by digging up their past, she’ll put her future in danger. Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie…

The stunning, twisty new psychological thriller from number one bestseller Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go and I See You.



I found this book completely unique, and extremely entertaining. It was 100% unbelievable, but made for a good story. There were a ton of plot twists that kept me wanting to read to see what outrageous turn was around the next corner.

I didn’t really connect with any of the character’s and found the Anna a bit annoying at times to be completely honest. At points I just felt like there was too much going on in her life. The only character I genuinely liked was Anna’s boyfriend, the father of her child.

If you are looking for a twisty, turning thriller that will keep you entertained from start to finished don’t hesitate to pick this one up. If you are like me and prefer something more realistic maybe give this one a pass. This one is definitely a rollercoaster ride of a book, but too unrealistic for me.
