Summary

She spoke out. I stayed silent. What would you do?

When Becky accidently sees her boss with a woman who isn’t his wife, she’s horrified but keeps her counsel - she owes Matthew so much for all he’s done for her career. But when the same woman accuses him of rape and asks for the witness to come forward, Becky doesn’t know what to do.

Was what she saw rape? Or is this a young actress looking to get ahead? And can Becky separate her own traumatic past from the present?

As Becky attempts to untangle these blurred lines, she must risk everything to find the truth....

Wow!

The summary doesn't do this book justice. I took a chance and what a wonderful surprise - a complex and gripping story. I did not want the book to end and I'm happy I found another author whose writing I love. In my opinion both men and women can read/listen to this book as one of the themes is especially relevant (and very current) and covered from both the male and female perspective. Recommended for suspense genre lovers!

Disappointing

I tried to return this book but unsuccessfully so thought I will carry on listening, it may improve - it didn't! I just could not gel with Becky, the main character who just appeared so self obsessed it was painful to listen to all of her thoughts and feelings, which it has to be said were endless. This was not for me, so just my opinion.

Fabulous!

Please have faith that this books summery does not do it justice. So many difficult issues well addressed in a though provoking way. Funny and heartbreaking at the same time. Superbly written and narrated. A must read!

Painfully predictable and rather unrealistic

Don't be misled by these books that get lots of great reviews, they're usually the worse. I had to have a lot of patience, it really dragged for the first couple of hours. The storyline was unbelievably predicable, the only reason I didn't return it is because I couldn't be bothered.

just couldn't get in to this

Couldn't finish it. Quarter of the way through I found that I just didn't care about the characters enough to find out what happened. Also found the narrator quite irritating. Not for me.
