Summary

'I'm good at secrets,' Libby says. Yes, thinks Jessica, I bet you are... Jessica should have everything to make her happy: a loving husband, a growing reputation as a jewellery designer, hope for a family of her own in the future. Then she meets Libby - flattering, attentive - and believes she has found the friendship she missed out on as a child. Until Jessica catches her husband and Libby alone, heads together in whispered collusion.

With her life unravelling, Jessica flees home to the seaside town where she grew up. The discovery of an old postcard among her childhood belongings sends Jessica in search of her first love, Thomas, 'the ghost boy' who disappeared one night seventeen years ago. The last time Jessica saw Thomas he was covered in blood and begging her to hide him. Now to find him, Jessica must confront the secrets that link her to Libby, the missing boy and a brutal murder.

Amazing

Clannachan paints a deep and skilfully told story. Like watching an artist paint an ever more detailed story, each word like strokes on a canvas adds depth and mystery. Enjoyable and poignant till the very end. Enjoyed best on a winters beach trip!

Great book

Really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator was good and had an easy voice and the descriptions used by Lezzane painted good picture in my mind, good story.
