Publisher's Summary

One summer. One stranger. One killer....

Two bad things happened that summer: a stranger arrived. And the first girl disappeared. In the wake of the crime that rocked her hometown, Felicity fled, knowing more than she let on. But 16 years later, her new life is shattered by the news that a second girl has gone missing in Sidmouth. 

Now, Felicity must go home, to face the truth about what happened all those years ago. Only she holds the answers - and they’re more shocking than anyone could imagine. The heatwave is back. And so is the killer. 

Don’t miss the hottest thriller of the summer - perfect for those who loved The Holiday.

Enthralling

Captured my interest from the start and held it to the end. Tragic stiry though.

Don’t bother!

I’d read good reviews of this book. I can only imagine they were written by people who can suspend their disbelief to a most incredible level. I finished this book. It was like watching one of those terrible films that you keep thinking is going to get better soon. It didn’t. The drawing together of threads and the ending is just all so unbelievable. I am going to ask for a refund of my credit on this book.

Preposterous claptrap

Started off well but degenerates into nonsense. I have really enjoyed all of Katerina Diamond's other books but this is very disappointing. Sloppy and insulting.

Great twist

Really enjoyed this book. Although I found the start a little slow the twists and turns soon got me hooked.
