I could not put this down. I had to, but it was difficult. From the beginning right up until the end, this book was relentless. The pace was set from the start and there was no change, twists, turns, corners, back tracking, secrets, lies… What got me the most was that I liked the characters, even the ones that you aren’t really supposed to! I wanted them to succeed, I willed them to be okay… and were they? Well that’s a spoiler. These people felt real, human, raw and I absolutely adored that.

Throw in the setting, Adele’s beautiful writing, a punchy and unpredictable storyline, and what do you have? The perfect thriller.

I didn’t know this until right at the end when I read the Author note, but this is the follow up to Both of You. I haven’t read it, but I definitely will be. I didn’t feel like I missed out at all but love that there is more of a back story to uncover with these characters!

About the Book

Kylie Gillingham’s disappearance has gripped the nation: the woman with a shocking secret – married to two men at the same time – is missing, presumed dead. And both her husbands are suspects.

DCI Clements knows the dark side of human nature and that love can make people do treacherous things; you can’t presume anything when it comes to crimes of the heart. While Kylie’s two husbands remain prime suspects, her sons won’t accept that she is dead. Until a body is found, this scandalous and sad case remains wide open.

Stacie Jones lives a quiet life in a small village, nursed by her father as she recovers from illness, and shielded from any disquieting news of the outside world. But their reclusive life is about to be shattered.

How are these families linked, and can any of them ever rebuild their lives in the wake of tragedy?
