If there are two sides to every story, someone is always lying…
Jack: Three words to describe my wife: Beautiful. Ambitious. Unforgiving.
Anna: I only need one word to describe my husband: Liar.
When a woman is murdered in Blackdown village, newsreader Anna Andrews is reluctant to cover the case. Anna’s ex-husband, DCI Jack Harper, is suspicious of her involvement, until he becomes a suspect in his own murder investigation.
Someone is lying, and some secrets are worth killing to keep.
Wow, this book was a crazy ride! What I liked so much about this story is how the reader makes new discoveries every chapter. This is the kind of thriller where you find out things slowly with time and where you can’t trust anyone. I think this is a great way to keep the reader curious about the story and to make guesses on who’s responsible. Well, it definitely worked for me!
The story alternates between a journalist and a detective (the main characters in the story), separating “His” and “Hers” points of view by chapters. These characters are investigating the death of the woman found in the woods, but things get… complicated (for spoiler reasons, let’s keep it this way).
I personally wasn’t expecting this story to be so dark, but I was wrong. There were some scenes here and there that were heavy. Not only that, but the eerie atmosphere of the woods gave the book an extra creepy vibe!
The ending was very surprising and shocking, and I was very pleased with it! I had my theories throughout the book and I suspected some of the characters, but I never thought it would end like that!
The author did an amazing job with this book. I really liked the story and I would recommend it to all the thriller/mystery fans. It’s a creepy story full of twists and turns, and I guarantee you will be entertained the entire time!
