Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Shortlisted for the Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2016.

A hit-and-run in Bristol, a dead five year old and a CID police partnership with a spark between the partners. Good police procedural stuff. Then a first-person narrative girl, Jenna, goes into hiding in Wales and another first-person voice from her past tells a story too. There is so much left hanging, so much you assume and then find it not to be so that enables the mystery to ratchet up the tension. What starts slowly and pretty formulaically suddenly turns and becomes truly compulsive. Great stuff.

If you like Clare Mackintosh you might also like to read books by Peter James, Sophie Hannah and T A Cotterell.

Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating ...

Reviews

'A terrific, compelling read with an astonishing twist that floored me. I loved it and did not want it to end.'
