  • A gripping read. I loved it!

    This is such a gripping read. School friends, Paige, who still lives in their small childhood town, rings Harry, who now lives in Canada, but, is recently separated from his wife, to explain that their close schoolfriend, Richard has been accused of murder. Harry races back to the UK and finds himself torn between schoolfriend allies and his memories. It's such a well told story and takes us from the school friend reunion, to the 2 friends trying their best to find out what happened. But there's so much more to this story; there's a murder from when they were teenagers, drugs, family and twists and turns as they explore the possibilities. I read in pretty much one sitting and loved it.

  • UNPUTDOWNABLE! COMPLETELY ADDICTIVE!.

    NO WAY! I DID NOT EXPECT THAT ENDING! UTTERLY SHOCKING AND COMPLETELY UNPUTDOWNABLE!. I have just finished reading one of my favourite author's latest book and I can't stress hard enough how much I loved it. It's a typical KW suspense/mystery/thriller and it's outstanding. KW slowly draws you in like a snail race and he ups the suspense and mystery until the deadly conclusion. I loved the characters especially Harry and Paige, they have such a tight bond and a really close friendship. I really did not want it to end the way it did, it was so sad. The plot was consistent and it just got better and better with every page I read. This will be another bestseller for the brilliant Kerry Wilkinson, he's an awesome author and he knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat, biting your nails until the last twist has revealed itself. I loved every single page. Thank you Netgally and Bookouture for the ARC. I will definitely be posting reviews and recommending this book and the rest of Kerry's books, he's a brilliant author.

  • Slow burn

    This novel was a slow build but the unexpected ending was well worth the adventure. A solid 3.5 stars!

  • Tense and suspenseful

    Thanks to the author, publishers Bookouture and NetGalley UK for the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review. When Harry gets a call from home to say one of his best childhood friends has been arrested for murder, he drops everything in his new life in Canada to go back to England. Richard has been charged with the murder of their old teacher Mr Wilson. Harry doesn’t believe Richard could do it and together with Paige, the third member of their teenage trio of friends, he tries to find something to help prove Richard’s innocence. Bad memories from the past come to the surface, and Harry learns that life for those he left behind has been tough. Slowly he begins to wonder whether his belief in the innocence of the people who knew as a teen is blinding him to how much they have changed. Everything in this story is from Harry’s perspective, so from the start we’re sure of Richard’s innocence. But, as Harry uncovers details about the lives Richard and Paige are leading now, and the realises how much he was either ignorant of or has forgotten from their teenage years, he begins to doubt everyone around them. A great story about how hard it is to return home and the power childhood friendships and promises can retain over us as adults. Overall a good thriller. Lots of suspense and moral ambiguity kept me engaged right to the end. A recommended read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
