Publisher's Summary

A shocking disappearance. A village full of secrets.

Ten years ago, a boy named Samuel Murray went missing from the quiet village of Buckthorpe and was never seen again.

Rosie Sharpe cried over her missing friend for weeks after. But her little sister, Heather, knows that Rosie’s tears hide the truth. Because the night Samuel was last seen, Heather watched her older sister climbing back through the window of their childhood bedroom. Her jacket torn, her eyes wild, and her body trembling with fear.

Heather never told anyone what she saw, but secrets can’t stay buried forever....

A decade later, Rosie and Heather return to the home they grew up in when their mother falls ill. But when their house is ransacked and they receive a threatening note, it becomes clear that someone in the close-knit village doesn’t want them there.

When Heather finally confronts her sister about what really happened on the dark, rainy night Samuel vanished, Rosie’s version of the truth is more shocking than she could ever have imagined. But can she trust her sister? And who broke into their house that night? As the lies of the past begin to unravel, they have the power to put the lives of both women in terrible danger....

This twist-filled psychological thriller from the million-copy best-selling author of Silent Child will keep you hooked. Perfect for fans of Behind Closed Doors and The Girl on the Train.

Couldn't get into it

Didn't like the narrator/narration at all. Sounded too staged, as though she was reading a play.

couldn't finish

I managed to get to Chapter 25 then just couldn't hack it any more. Writer repeated herself constantly and I don't think the narrator was that great either. Would send it back but for some reason I'm not allowed. Don't really care who the Liar is.

too much internal dialog

will she -won't she. The main characters repetitively have hysterical internal battles trying to sort out their problems. Gets very boring.

Slow start

It was hard for me to get in to this book. The story dragged at first and the speaker seemed to be angry or pushing the performance throughout.

It ended with an interesting twist, but it took a very long time to get there.

Tedious, not surprising

Story drags in beginning, middle and end. Narrator is fine. Will be returning. That’s all.

How do some books even get published?

Boring, predictable and repetitive. Why should I need to write 15 words to leave a review. That's all I have to say for this trash book.

Skip the first half

I don’t usually write unhappy reviews. I preserved through this book. I would say listen to the second half of this one. The characters are very 2 demential. Undeveloped and Heather is written as a very naive and lacking any curiosity to look past her nose IMO 🤷🏻‍♀️ I don’t recommend to my fellow thriller listeners.

Brilliant....Loved it!

Just when I am losing all hope that a decent audio book is going to be released and I'm thinking of cancelling....along comes this.

This is my type of book and I wish there were more like it! gripped me from the start, relatable characters, easy to follow and listen to! some books are over complicated and I end up not having a clue who is who or what's going on but not with this one. I could picture every scene and character like a movie! had me holding my breath in some parts and a few good twists which I did not guess!

I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next!

BRILLIANT!! a BIG well done and Thank you

It wasn’t awful!

Though it wasn’t for me. I couldn’t bring myself to care about what appeared to be a cast of extremely unlikeable characters. I need a connection in order to enjoy a book but that’s just me.

Boring

I decided to read another book by Sarah A Denzil because I recently finished the first two Isabel Fielding books and they were absolutely amazing.
Sadly this book was really boring and I kept switching off. Also just about all the characters were annoying. The youngest sister was so pathetic, weak and annoying. When a character has no redeeming quality it’s hard to remain invested in the story. I am very disappointed with this story but I’ll try another book by the same author as she is capable of brilliant writing.

Slow start but great end

This book dragged and I almost gave up with it. I wasn’t gripped and got confused between the sisters but it really picked up pace in later chapters. It was really twisty and it’s a shame it didn’t build quicker as the ending was great.

Fabulous

It’s a bit slow and confusing at the beginning but it picks up. I really enjoy it
