Summary

You’ve known her your whole life....

Andrea Oliver knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she's always lived in the small town of Belle Isle; she knows she’s a pillar of the community; she knows she's never kept a secret in her life.

But she’s hiding something.... 

Then, one day, a trip to the mall explodes into a shocking act of violence, and Andy suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura.

And it could destroy you both.... 

Hours later, Laura is in hospital, her face splashed over the newspapers. But the danger has only just begun. Now, Andy must go on a desperate race to uncover the secrets of her mother's past. Unless she can, there may be no future for either of them....

Wonderful convoluted story

I download this book as soon as it was released without any reviews. However, it was not a risk as Karin Slaughter never disappoints. This book presented with a beautifully written convoluted plot which keeps you hooked. You wonder how the twin timescale plots will come together and be resolved, but they do! Good narration too.

Different twist!

I did enjoy listening to the plot, different and a little predictable, but well crafted!

Not as compelling as usual.....<br />

I'm a huge fan of Karin Slaughter but I struggled to stay connected to this one. I can't quite believe I'm saying this, but I actually got a bit bored. I'm hoping the next one will grab me again.

hugely disappointing

I usually like Karen slaughter's books but this was awful. the characters were unlikeable and frankly pathetic and the story was tedious. I eventually gave up listening and skim read the book just to finish it as I could not listen to s minute longer. so disappointed as her books are normally very good.

Excellent twists

Such a long book I did wonder how it would be filled! Answer - great plots, twists and back story. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this audiobook it’s an excellent listen.

weak for this author

meandering, great start, great finish, slow and weak in the middle, too many loose ends.

Up to Karin's previous standard

Karin Slaughter is brilliant at creating annoying, frustrating, normal human beings. What in any other novel will take half a page here takes three times as long due to characters' hesitancy, and human reactions. It makes you want to scream at them to do what you know they should do but what you would also hesitate to do. I love it!
