How far would you go to protect the ones you love?
On the surface the De Vere family appear to have it all. Wealth, political power, and idyllic life split between their London mansion, Oxfordshire country house, and their idyllic, sprawling Martha's Vineyard estate. But beneath the gilded façade, and the family's apparently water-tight bonds with one another, lie many secrets, some of them deadly.
When the mistakes of youth refuse to stay buried, and generations-old hatreds resurface, the De Veres find themselves on the brink of losing everything. How far will each of them go to conceal the truth and protect the family?

"A master storyteller at the top of his game." (USA Today)
"Compulsively readable." (New York Times Book Review Flawless)
"Bagshawe's prose is as breathless as her plotting" (Mirror)
I'm a freelance opera singer and teacher of singing. I love to read Thrillers, Chick lit General/contemporary & Children's books.
Yes especially when it's read by the beautiful soothing voice of Denica Fairman! This story is full of many surprises and it takes a very good narator to create the right amount of tension where necessary.
I can only compare this book to any other books written by Sidney Sheldon. Such as: Angel, After the darkness. This author is rather unique.
Denica Fairman has got one of the most soothing voices which can get just as fierce as it can be soothing. This really creates a dramatic difference between the sweet characters, and the very mean ones. I particularly loved the dynamic difference in her tone when she reads the lighter chapters such as part one. . It lulled me in to thinking I was reading a danielle Steel instead of a Sidney sheldon until the murdders started to occur.
Be ware! Everyone is a camelion!
I always know I'm in for an unforgetable experience when I start reading a Sidney Sheldon book and I have never been disappointed! If You're ever in a hurry and you need to buy a book to read, Pick anyone by this author and you're guaranteed one of the best reads you've ever had.
Yes, this is a good story and the narration of the story is very well done.
Trying to figure out the connection between the multiple stories.
I did stay up late a few nights listening to a bit more!
