Summary

Do you really want to know the truth?

Amanda Bonham moved halfway around the world to be with the man she loves. Although expat life in Singapore can be difficult, Edward Bonham is a dream husband and a doting father to his teenage daughter, Josie.

But when their maid dies in an apparent suicide—and Amanda discovers the woman was pregnant and hiding a stash of drugs prescribed to Edward—she can’t help but wonder if her perfect husband has a fatal flaw. And if he can’t resist temptation under their own roof, what does he get up to when he travels?

Camille Kemble also has questions for Edward. Recently returned to Singapore, Camille is determined to resolve a family mystery. Amid a jumble of faded childhood memories, she keeps seeing Edward’s handsome face. And she wants to know why.

For one woman, the search for answers threatens everything she has. For another, it’s the key to all she lost. Both will follow his trail of secrets into the darkness to find the truth.

Enjoyable!

I have found this an enjoyable read/listen. The characters are well drawn, it gave an interesting account of Singapore and there was real suspense. The story itself lost a star for the chapters from ‘the twist’. I don’t do spoilers, so suffice to say, I had to suspend my disbelief at the unrealistically compliant way in which the women handled themselves. Also generally,
I found these later chapters weaker when compared to the rest of the book.
