Unforgotten by Clare Francis
  

Lovereading view...

It's been 4 yrs since her last novel and definitely worth the wait. Unforgotten is a crime thriller but its also a really involving family drama with engrossing real life characters. The central character, a lawyer called Hugh Gwynne, has spent 5 years preparing a case for his client who suffers from post-traumatic stress after witnessing the death of his daughter in a car crash. Hugh struggles to connect with Tom, his client, as his life is so different and happy. But a personal tragedy changes that overnight.

If you like Clare Francis you might also like to read books by Sebastian Faulks, Robert Ryan and Judith Lennox.

Synopsis

Unforgotten by Clare Francis

Lawyer Hugh Gwynne is facing his most difficult court case. His client Tom Deacon is claiming damages for post-traumatic stress after a car accident in which he witnessed the death of his young daughter. It seems certain Tom will win, but then Hugh receives an anonymous letter which throws him into an impossible dilemma. For Hugh the dilemma is intensified by the contrast between their lives: Tom tormented by flashbacks, and a broken marriage; Hugh with what he sees as a blessed and rewarding existence. Then one night Hugh's life changes for ever. His happiness is snatched away, and he, like Tom, must face a lifetime of troubling memories.

'The plot intricate and the solution ingenious. A very good read' Scotsman

'Devilishly clever ...this one really was unputdownable' Daily Mail
