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.

  

Here is what I thought

Anna has lost both her parents to suicide or did she? It’s been a year after her mother’s death and Anna is a new mother and trying to get on with her life, then she gets a note making her thinks things are not as they seem.

Told in multiple points of view a story is weave together and I must say it’s pretty interesting. I haven’t had a good time with thrillers this year so I was finally do a good one. We get a POV from an older cop who use to be a detective and is the one who talks with Anna when she gets the note, Anna thinks that maybe her parents had been murder and so Murray starts to look into things. You get a glimpse into Murray’s life with his wife Sarah and how this mystery kind of helps them though it’s kind of sad.

So I had a few theories and I was actually surprised at the twist that came towards the end. Which to me is always the best part of a thriller if it’s done well enough I don’t figure it out which I didn’t have this one figured out. I just new a certain person was lying…though I had a hard time not wanting to blame everyone…lol…they were all pretty shady.

Can’t say any more without giving something away but I will say that this was my first Clare Mackintosh but won’t be the last, I want to check out another one soon! I do think thrillers work better for me on audio because if they get a little draggy it’s not so bad when someone is reading to me.

I would recommend this thriller! 🙂

The Narrator

My first time with Gemma Whelan and I enjoyed her narration. She doesn’t really do different voices though maybe lowering her voice a bit for the male parts but that doesn’t bother me if I enjoy the narrator’s voice and they can still entertain me which she did.

    I definitely know what you mean about suspecting everyone. No one was free from my suspicion in this one except the cop – I really liked the cop. It was about time we found a decent thriller and like you, I will be keeping an eye open for this author in the future.
