Summary

Dean Hudson didn't look evil...so what could drive an ordinary boy to kill?

When the teenage son of Holly Gold's school friend brutally murders his parents before killing himself, her sleepy home town is rocked by the sudden tragedy.

Appalled, Holly investigates. What could have caused the happy-go-lucky boy she remembers to commit such a heinous crime? When another teen commits suicide, she uncovers a horrifying link between the recent deaths and a dark conspiracy to hide the truth.

But someone doesn't want Holly asking questions and, as she hunts for evidence to prove her theory, she's dragged into a nightmare that threatens her life and her sanity. Then tragedy strikes again - and this time it's closer to home...

Beneath the Surface is a gripping psychological suspense-thriller from the bestselling author of Duplicity, Look Behind You and Where the Memories Lie.

A Excellent Book.

I would definitely recommend this book. Brilliant story and well told by the narrators with the most perfect ending. Sibel Hodge is a BRILLIANT writer and I'm so looking forward to her next release.

Very far fetched

The story teller was really irritating.
I was expecting a twist at the end - there wasn’t one

Hard work

I had high hopes for this title but unfortunately it was a drag. I stuck with it til the end and am glad it's over. It was too involved with all the descriptions of medical jargon and the like. Narration was ok but nothing great there either.

Not enough research on mental illness...

I feel the author showed her lack of knowledge on depression...well, depressing. She kept acting as though taking meds which by the way, have saved many lives is such a horrible thing. The main character makes a very naive statement something the effect of, i dont need "happy pills" i can just think ore positive..blah bah. First of all, you cannot THINK your way out of clinical depression. Anti-depressants are NOT 'happy pills". Thats a very ignorant way too see them. They dont make you "high" or "euphoric". Sigh....she is way way behind the times and sounds like one of those people who hate big pharma forgetting that their mom or dad is alive because they have insulin for their diabetes, or synthroid for thyroid disease, anti-biotics it save them fro infection.
This book is thinly veiled propaganda from someone with an anti- medication agenda. And for gods sake please stop calling weed, spliff or whatever drugs and acting like people who smoke are on a bad road. Wow was this author on a soapbox!
Also, the coincidences were absolutely silly. Way too unbelievable , even for fiction. If you're going to let your biases show, please at least be accurate with facts and do your homework .
Happy pills indeed. Pfft.

An agenda book

The first half is very good. Second half is all about big pharma, pills, depression. She does make some valid points. BUT the last paragraph is total BS. Vaccines do not cause autism!!!! Will never read another book by this author.

Very good suspense

Sibel Hodge became one of my favorite authors since I read Duplicity. I love the way she reveals the mystery slowly and with great imagination. This was another one of her books that has the same elements. Loved this book.

Not Bad

I enjoyed this book enough to listen all the way through. It kept my attention and really makes one think.
