‘Daddy has been lying.’

Faye Townsend has planned the perfect summer trip for her family. But returning to the small seaside town her husband grew up in does not go to plan, the rain pours and the long days become stifling. And then the unthinkable happens…
Her husband Jake and her six-year-old son Dylan go for an early morning walk along the beautiful, windswept clifftops. They don’t come back.
As the hours tick by, Dylan’s red baseball cap is found on the beach and Faye finds herself being questioned by the police. They want to know everything about the man she married – is Faye ready to face her husband’s dark past? Or will she have to confront her own secrets first?

And just how far will a mother go to save her only child?

From the million-copy-bestselling author of The Secret Mother and The Perfect Family, this utterly gripping psychological thriller will make you gasp out loud as you race towards the unforgettable twist. If you loved The Girl on the Train and The Wife Before You this book is for you.

My Review:

This is a thoroughly engrossing book. It grips you straight away with its prologue, which gives you just a hint of something, then it’s gone.

The whole plot is woven like this, and it makes for compulsive reading. There’s a chapter of present day, then interspersed are chapters about the past, and what happened in Swanage all those years ago, and also little chapters from someone else’s perspective. We don’t know who is person is, but they seem to be involved in Dylan and Jake’s disappearance.

I genuinely didn’t see the big plot twist coming, then there’s a few more surprises along the way.

This is a book to devour, you won’t want to be disturbed while reading it. Addictive stuff. Fabulous.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
