Sharon Bolton has done it again! Another twisty, dark and compelling thriller that I couldn’t put down until I’d finished. I also really enjoyed The Split, this is similar but not as good (I loved the location in The Split just as much as I did the storyline!). Nevertheless it’s a firm four stars from me. This book is woven so deeply and intricately, you will flip back a few pages every so often to double check you’ve read it right.

There are so many twists and turns (some predictable and some not) that I was left reeling. A brilliant read and another great Thriller from an Author fast becoming a firm favourite. Fancy a copy? You can order yours here.

About the Author…

Sharon J Bolton was born and brought up in Lancashire, the eldest of three daughters. As a child, she dreamed of becoming an actress and a dancer, studying ballet, tap and jazz from a young age and reading drama at Loughborough University.

She spent her early career in marketing and PR before returning to full-time education to study for a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at Warwick University, where she met her husband, Andrew. They moved to London and Sharon held a number of PR posts in the City. She left the City to work freelance, to start a family and to write.

She and Andrew now live in a village in the Chiltern Hills, not far from Oxford, with their son and the latest addition to the family: Lupe, the lop-eared lurcher. Her daily life revolves around the school run, walking the dog and those ever-looming publishing deadlines.
