Summary

The chilling and gripping Richard and Judy Book Club pick.

SHE'LL NEVER STOP RUNNING.
But he'll never stop looking.

A year ago Felicity Lloyd fled England to South Georgia, one of the most remote islands in the world, escaping her past and the man she once loved. Can she keep running her whole life?

Freddie Lloyd has served time for murder - and now he wants her back. Wherever she is, he won't stop until he finds her. Will he be able to track her to the ends of the earth?

Together they'll find themselves trapped on the ice and in danger. Who will survive?

Absolutely brilliant!

Loved listening to The Split from start to finish. Sharon's books never fail to keep my interest throughout. Great twists and very emotional too. I thoroughly recommend this book. Loved Bamber....everyone needs a Bamber :-)

Slow at the start but ends up being an incredible storyline!!!!

I struggled to get into this book at the start and I had to force myself to keep reading it but OMG this book turned out to be amazing. One of the best I’ve ever read. The story line was full of twists and turns. So glad I persisted!!!!

Maybe The Best..

I love all of Sharon Bolton's books, but this one was exceptional. Expertly researched, well read, and kept me on edge throughout. Loved it.

Felicity!!!

I felt sorry for the woman who had to keep saying her name. I was just rolling my eyes near the end of this but persevered with it.
it was very corny and unbelievable.

Very good. Ruined though

Very good. Great twists. But I really think hearing of a 3year olds experience of being gang raped was very unnecessary - ruined it for me. Found that too upsetting.

Very predictable!

Compared to the rest of Sharon Bolton's books this was disappointing. Found it too predictable and the storyline was broken up and hard to follow
