Jamie has been found hanging in a local wood. His death is ruled a suicide, but Maya doesn't believe Jamie would take his own life. Something isn't right. Someone has broken into her house. Someone is watching her. And someone has gone to great lengths to cover up what Jamie was doing before he died.
Maya's grief turns to suspicion, and as she begins to investigate the weeks leading up to Jamie's death, her trail leads her to a place known as "The Big House" and the horrific secrets within. Secrets people will stop at nothing to keep hidden. People linked to the heart of the Establishment who think they're untouchable. Now Maya has a dangerous decision to make. How far is she prepared to go to reveal the truth?

"One of those novels that hooks you in from the start, then keeps upping the game as you read it until you are desperate for certain outcomes from the plot and characters…. 5 huge stars and long-listed for my Top 10 Books of 2016." (Booklover Catlady)
It was quite a sad story and I feel like the perpetrators don't pay enough of a price...but I suppose that's what makes it more realistic I suppose.
Great performances across the board.
Sadly the content of this book is very believable because all around the world we are witnessing court cases and enquiries where the innocent are taken advantage by those who have been put in place to care for them.
Well worth purchasing.
"Horrific yet mesmerizing tale of darkness & light!"
Provocative breathtaking hopeful.
The unfolding of a series of disturbing events. The excitement of adding technology, mystery, revenge and emotion.
A cast of excellent narrators, who captivate the listener and create a visual environment ... it was hard for me to break away to reality.
an insight into the depth of depravity.
I have been frustrated in my search for noir/mysterious/thrilling/ suspenseful audio books, having down loaded hundreds of books within the past two years. This one caught me right from the start. Hopefully ... my next Sibel Hodge book will lead me to my net favorite author.
"a good story but"
I had to fast forward through the graphic sadistic chapters because they were just too disturbing.
"Great story; I found the details of what happened to the boys too detailed for me, and I had to skip parts, but the good story."
I liked the flow and the chapter changes with characters, I found the female voice a little whiny.
Details of what happened to the boys - too graphic.
This was agood story. The ending seemed a tad rushed but enjoyed it. worth a read.
