June 2015 Book of the Month.
All the Little Pieces should come with a warning label: this is not a light easy read, it’s disturbing, sad, unsettling and… addictive. You are launched straight into the terrified thoughts of a young woman scrambling, crawling and battling for her life, then with a startling change of direction you find yourself sitting in a car with Faith as she drives herself and her four year old daughter home through a storm. You feel the beginning of this novel has set the stage for an inevitable journey, however the road taken by the author leads to unexpected stops and diversions. Hoffman maintains a bitingly taut tension through out, there is a harsh rawness and a feeling of sad reality that lingers as you turn the pages. If you believe in fairytales and everyone living happily ever after, perhaps best not to read this different and breathtakingly chilling book. ~ Liz Robinson
She could have stopped an awful crime. She could have saved a life. She tried to forget about it. But now, the truth is out. The terrifying new psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Retribution and Pretty Little Things. Faith Saunders is the perfect wife, mother and sister - loved and admired by all who know her. One night will change everything. As she drives home in the pouring rain, a dishevelled young woman appears out of nowhere, pleading for help. The isolated stretch of road is dark, and with her four-year-old daughter Maggie asleep in the backseat, Faith refuses to let the stranger in. What she sees next will haunt her forever. When the missing-person posters go up, Faith's guilt consumes her. Then the girl's body turns up, and her perfect life begins to unravel. Because it turns out Maggie wasn't asleep that night and - unlike her mother - she's not afraid to speak up. Maggie's testimony leads to an arrest, but Faith is the only one who can identify a second man who was at the scene of the crime. She has one chance to convince a jury of what happened. If she fails, two murderers will go free - two men who have killed before and who will undoubtedly kill again. And they know exactly where to find Faith and her family...
