Publisher's Summary

The must-read psychological thriller for 2019 from the million-copy-bestselling author of Silent Child.

"Your daughter is dead."

When Kat Cavanaugh hears the words every mother dreads, her perfect world shatters. She takes in the beautiful long blonde hair, torn yellow dress, and chipped blue nail-varnish. It can’t be real.

And then the police add the word "suicide". But Kat refuses to believe them.

Even when they show her the familiar looping handwriting and smudged ink on the note her little girl left behind. She knows her bubbly, vivacious daughter would never take her own life.

As she searches Grace’s perfume-scented room, filled with smiling photos, she uncovers secrets her little girl had been hiding. Secrets that could put her in terrible danger, too.

But Kat’s determined to find out what really happened to Grace on the night she died, whatever it takes....

This addictive and heart-pounding psychological thriller will keep you gripped late into the night.

It was OK

I found myself becoming frustrated with the story in parts. Not as good as The Silent Child

Unbelievable Twist (literally)

As a fan of Sarah A. Denzil's work, I was surprised to have been let down with the ending.
Without spoiling it for anybody...the 'jaw dropping' twist was indeed jaw dropping...but for all the wrong reasons.
I felt let down by where the story ended up. So much so, that I didn't listen to the last hour of it.
Was worth the listen for the character building though!

Spell Binding

This story grips you at many angles! Extremely hard to put it down! Sarah paints clear visual pictures for you. Totally entertaining......looking for another one of her books!

Amazing! Do not miss!

I don’t know how I missed the release of this book! I love Sarah Denzil’s writing and this book is amazing! Kept me guessing and intrigued through the end. The narrator is wonderful too!

Story Great, But ENTIRELY Too Long

If this was shortened by about 10 chapters, I think it still could've been epic-in spots I grew bored. But ultimately worth staying until the end.

Disappointing

I hate leaving bad reviews... but honestly, I was disappointed! I loved Sarah’s other books? And was expecting another fantastic story, but this one just didn’t do it for me. I’d stick to the others and give this one a miss.

Ok, nothing special

Mediocre storyline, some quite good twists. But the characters are not particularly likeable, not sure they're meant to be.

not good

sorry but one of the worst book I have read. weak characters whose behaviour did not make sense. should have researched what makes sociopaths more thoroughly. finished it but hated every second of it!

A bit deep for me

Although the story was ok, I found it a little depressing to be honest & very sad. Also a little complicated.

Built up to a disappointing end.

Narrator was good but the book was disappointing with a terrible end. I am still struggling to understand a very complicated, long winded story line.
