Gillian McAllister has done it again! Read in less than a day… sleep? What’s that?!

This book throws up so many questions. How can you manage everything still to come when you already know about it AND balance it with everything that’s been before. Jen does. She’s living every parents nightmare, over and over again.

Never have I stopped so many times and stared at a book in disbelief until now. Even with Gillian’s previous publications. Every twist and revelation is shocking, unpredictable, mind-bending.

I was instantly challenged, in the first few pages, to think about what I would do. And that right there is what Gillian is fast becoming well known and celebrated for. She’s the queen of the moral dilemma. I’ve said it before. Every single book challenges you to explore, “What on earth would I do?” And by the end of it? You still won’t know.

You’ll read this Groundhog Day style Thriller forwards and then by the end you’ll want to read it backwards to piece it all together all over again. There’s that twist, then that one, and another one… I never saw them coming!

Gillian’s law background shines through again, just enough to make you realise you’re reading a very well researched book. Equally, parts of the book that haven’t intersected with Gillian’s real life are still incredibly strong and factual. At least, there are parts you HOPE haven’t intersected! There’s no faltering though, her writing style is smooth, unique, perfectly finished. This books is all of the best parts of Gillian’s previous books and more. Writing is an Art and Gillian is a true master of her craft.
