Fantastic book. You are never certain who to feel empathy for. When some of the shocking truth is revealed you can understand one character but as more is revealed the absolute truth is jaw dropping.
For lovers of suspense & examination of complex characters, this is the book for you. Couldn’t put it down.

What an incredible story. Filled with twists & turns that leave you wishing the narrator could talk faster. Introducing Robert Hunter, brilliant detective determined to track down the killer with all the odds against him. If you love suspense & riveting story lines this book is for you. Keeps you enthralled to the final conclusion. I’m now a huge fan of the incredible author Chis Carter and of Detective Robert Hunter

Thoroughly enjoyable listen. Keeps you interested & invested in characters. Find yourself wondering how a parent knew so little about who their daughter really was. But in the end, there’s the big surprise

Touching, suspenseful & brilliant

Characters you develop an affection for & ones you could kill yourself. Brilliantly written holding you entranced to the last word. I have become a huge fan of Ms Slaughter. Best novel I’ve read in years.

Flowed well. Good character description. Set the scene so you could imagine the growing panic & frustration. Made the reader really care about the various characters. Suspenseful in places. Great book & beautifully narrated.

My whole life I loved Sally Field. From Gidget to the flying nun, Smokey & the Bandit to the much loved Mama from Forrest Gump. I seen every one of her movies & shows & always had an image of what she was like. But reading her books, her words & her deep honesty exposing her vulnerability has shown me how truly incredible an actor she is. I always thought she must have a charmed life. Not so. I now have a much deeper admiration & respect for her. Her honesty in relaying her pain of childhood & her insecurity of all the feelings & questions she posed to herself. I feel it was & is an honour to have listened to her recount her life’s journey, admit her failings, as human as they are in all their raw stages. Sally Field is an incredible woman & I’m only sorry the book finished. Thank you Ms Field for sharing your story.

Incredible & insightful. You literally go on a journey of self awareness with Anne. Her description of her time in the annexe & the thoughts and feelings she wrote of could have been by any teenager through the decades. She describes her feelings on different subjects & what struck me was how similar some of my own thoughts were as a 14 year old some 35 years later. But Anne was an incredibly special person. Her beautiful spirit & ability to strive to be positive in the most horrific of times. Her poignant desire to write something one day that would change the world and have people understand that hate & prejudice are emotions to leave behind & reject. What might she have done had she lived? We will never know but what she did in death reminds us NEVER FORGET NEVER AGAIN
