    "Surprised how much I enjoyed this book"

    The many twists and turns, plus the obvious parallel timeline of this book maintains the listener's interest. It is easy listening, although how the female narrator depicts 2 of the characters as slightly vague (or read as 'drippy'!) isn't so appealing. It's not too hard a change to swallow if like me, you're normally a noir / thriller fan but fancy a change!

    "Fabulously rich story-telling"

    Written in dual narrative, this is the story of a murder from two very different points of view. The first narrative tells how events led up the murder whilst the other describes how it continued to effect lives many years later. Warm, well written and flawless plot. Loved it.
