Summary

Paige, Richard and me. We thought we’d be friends forever. But everything changed the day we took the shortcut home from school along the old railway line. I wish we’d gone the long way. I wish we hadn’t seen our classmate, pale and still in the undergrowth. And I wish we hadn’t promised to keep one, awful detail a secret just between us....

Twenty years later, I have a brand-new life and try never to think about my old one. But I’m dragged back when Paige calls out of the blue. Richard has been accused of something terrible. Everyone back home is whispering about the body we found years ago and saying Richard deserves to be locked up....

Before I know it, I’ve returned to the small town I thought I’d never see again. Paige is almost the same as I remember - jet-black hair, slender frame - but why does she seem so nervous? 

Revealing the truth about what we saw that day 20 years ago could clear Richard’s name...but will the blame fall on me? And can I really trust that Paige is on my side - or is she hiding her own dark secret? 

When we find a strange note in Richard’s flat, only one thing is for certain: Someone else knows the truth too. All three of us are in danger....

Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, I Am Watching You, and The Girl on the Train.

Like watching paint dry

I tried. I really tried but it was so boring, and repetitive, I gave up.
Sad I can’t return
