Jess and Heather were once best friends – until the night Heather’s sister Flora vanished. The night that lies tore their friendship apart.
But years later, when a brutal double murder shakes their childhood town, Jess returns home.
Because the suspect is Heather.
What happened to the girl you used to know?
Another superbly addictive read from Claire Douglas, a twisty delight of a tale that involves you right from page one.
I was particularly fond of Jess, one of this authors superpowers is the ability to write depthful characters that you just engage with, as she returns home to a friendship gone awry, her journalist instincts fighting an ongoing battle with her loyalties and love.
The mystery element is perfectly done, leading the reader down various intriguing paths before the final truth is revealed. It is at once an absorbing character drama and a tense psychological thriller, written with wonderful descriptive sense of people and place.
Very good indeed. Recommended.
