In this high-octane sequel to Falling Fast, River, still passionately in love with Flynn, finds herself more and more confused and anxious by his violent behaviour. Time and again she forgives him knowing some of the devils that haunt him. But, when Flynn lashes out once too often, River knows that she can’t manage things any longer. Flynn will have to change. But can he? A tantalising end in expectation of the third part of the trilogy.

If you like Sophie McKenzie you might also like to read books by Gillian Flynn, S. J. Watson and Samantha Hayes.
