One hot summers night in Italy, Joe and Cathy Plant receive a phone call that will change their lives forever.
Their sister Frannie has killed a man, and she needs their help.
They were always close, some might say too close, siblings who worked together, lived next door to each other
And now they’ve buried a body together…
But when they return to England, Frannie, Joe and Cathy become tangled in lies in they’ve been telling,
To the police, to their friends, to each other…
But if you can’t trust your family, who can you trust?
Once again Gillian McAllister offers up a right old page turner of a novel, utterly gripping from first page to last.
I love books with a real moral dilemma right at the heart of them, which is definitely this author’s super power – all the way through That Night I was questioning every action and applying my own, all the time completely immersed into the story unfolding on the page. One of my favourite things was the unpredictable nature of the plot, will they get away with it, who will crack first, who’s lying who’s dying…all of this and more.
Beautifully written and crafted, with plenty of emotional resonance, That Night allows you to ponder that favourite question of crime writers and readers…who would YOU call to help bury the body…and could you trust them for the rest of your life?
A truly excellent read. Highly recommended.
