Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Excellent psychological crime writer of The Hiding Place with a book more about family dynamics than crime. We do have a murder and a couple of attempted murders but it is the secrets within the family that drives this novel. A Down’s Syndrome young man is suspected of murdering his mother but his sister is certain he didn’t. Dark revelations from the past and how they have affected the lives of the extended family are to the fore as sister Elizabeth delves deep, uncovering a host of secrets.

If you like David Bell you might also like to read books by Dennis Lehane, Belinda Bauer and Suzanne Bugler.

Synopsis

Gone for Good by David Bell

Elizabeth Hampton has not spoken to her mother in weeks when she gets the phone call. Her mother has been found dead under suspicious circumstances. But who would want to kill a kind old woman who stayed at home to care for her son Ronnie's special needs? And why did her mother recently change her Will? The police tell Elizabeth that this is not only a murder investigation - her brother Ronnie is the prime suspect. Desperate to prove her brother's innocence, Elizabeth begins to unravel dark family secrets, double lives and the shocking truth behind her own identity.
