Andrew, the manager of Shanamore Holiday Cottages, watches his only guest via a hidden camera in her room. One night the unthinkable happens: a shadowy figure emerges onscreen, kills her and destroys the camera. But who is the murderer? How did they know about the camera? And how will Andrew live with himself?
Natalie wishes she’d stayed at home as soon as she arrives in the wintry isolation of Shanamore. There’s something creepy about the manager. She wants to leave, but she can’t – not until she’s found what she’s looking for…
This is an explosive story about a murder caught on camera. You’ve already missed the start. To get the full picture you must rewind the tape and play it through to the end, no matter how shocking…
Loved this one, it was very clever, atmospheric and so tense, dipping in and out of the timeline, giving you little nuggets of information, slowly building a full picture …
We start with a shadowy figure committing murder on camera then with hindsight we begin to see the events leading up to this- at the same time the author builds a character base and setting offering further clues along the way.
It is beautifully plotted and beautifully written, extremely addictive and unpredictable. I gulped it down, stopping occasionally to consider what I had just found out.
Brilliant. Another fantastic read from Catherine Ryan Howard.
