Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

On a cold, windswept night, Fiona arrives on a tiny, isolated island in Orkney. She accepted her old friend's invitation with some trepidation - her relationship with Madison has never been plain sailing. But as she approaches Madison's cottage, she sees that the windows are dark. The place has been stripped bare. No one knows where Madison has gone.

As Fiona tries to find out where Madison has vanished to, she begins to unravel a web of lies. Madison didn't live the life she claimed to, and now Fiona's own life is in danger....

Not her best

I bought this after enjoying two other books by Helen Callaghan: "Dear Amy, which was brilliant, and "Everything is Lies" which was also pretty good. This particular book, unfortunately, is not. It gets off to a great start, but soon settles down to long stretches of dull rather stilted and unnatural dialogue. It had a tendency to send me to sleep. The ending was a little better, but not much. I did like the date and location stamps at the start of each chapter so I always knew where I was. I also liked the setting of an archaeological dig on Orkney. Reminded me of the Shetland books by Ann Cleeves.

intense and keeps you guessing.

thoroughly enjoyed it! . narration was good and fitted the characters which is rare! couldn't wait till the end and not as i predicted. only slight criticism is i feel that the 'baddies' demise was a little far fetched.

Badly edited

Story and narration are great..... whoever edited has missed quite a few parts of the story where a paragraph has been repeated which makes for confusing listening.
