Child psychiatrist Kate Wolfe’s world comes crashing down when one of her young patients commits suicide, so when a troubled girl is left at the hospital ward, she doubts her ability to help. But the girl knows things about Kate’s past, things she shouldn’t know, forcing Kate to face the murky evidence surrounding her own sister’s murder sixteen years before, bringing Kate face to face with her deepest fear.

Brilliantly addictive, beautifully written psychological drama here from Alice Blanchard. Twisty as you like with some excellent characters and emotive themes.

I blasted through this one, it was so so compelling as Kate struggles to readjust after the suicide of a patient  – she get’s drawn into another girl’s problems despite herself and finds that there may be links to a murder from years ago..

That sets us up then and what follows is a wonderfully engaging story full of subtle twists of both character and event, this is one of those books where you change your mind on the truth of the matter every other chapter. The ending is edge of seat good, the characters are all well drawn and utterly fascinating and there are some insightful underlying strands on the subject of mental illness that are beautifully done.

Overall truly excellent. Elegant writing with beautiful descriptive prose, a twisty as you like plot that still feels very real and overall I would definitely highly recommend this novel to anyone.
