Publisher's Summary

When Richard Asquith dies in a car crash, it sets in motion a series of events that threaten to destroy his family and those around him.

Richard has left behind children who dislike him, women who are bitter, and a question lingering over the disappearance of his daughter many years ago. As the family gathers at his wake, secrets from the past come to light, and the tension starts to boil over. 

This gripping and suspenseful psychological thriller will appeal to fans of domestic noir and authors like C. L. Taylor, Claire McGowan, and B. A. Paris.

NOT "Absolutely Gripping Psychological Suspense"

.... I think its more of (an extended) family drama. There are plenty of 'main' characters and you do need to listen with some degree of concentration, otherwise you may lose track of each persons story. The narrator did change most characters' accent which did help. It just seemed to me there was too much going on with each person and it could have been simpler.
