Warning: this book is part of a series (of sorts). When I first read this book, I was really confused, despite enjoying it immensely, because I felt sure I recognised the characters, and yet I had no recollection of the intriguing plot. Eventually, I realised that this was the third of Hannah's books involving certain police officers. Although the front page notes that this is by the "bestselling author of 'Little Face'", it is marketed as simply a crime mystery and it is not really made clear that some characters have also starred in her previous two novels in this genre. Now, this isn't to say that you can't read this as a standalone novel (you can) but just . Read the complete review

When you read a good thriller you get caught up in a rollercoaster of emotions, the pages seem to turn themselves as you get drawn into the plot, and you feel the author toying with you whilst enjoying the twists and turns of the plot in equal measure. This book succeeds in this genre in some ways, but for me, disappointed in others. Firstly the premise of the plot is a good one which lends itself to much speculation and intrigue. The central character Sally is a working mum who makes the most of a cancelled business trip to escape reality for a while - she checks herself into a hotel for a week to escape her day to day life.

This book is definitely a crime thriller/horror which is a little different from my usual reads. I often opt for Jodi Picoult books, which whilst having a crime in them are all about the characters and about human relationships.

Every so often though a thriller catches my attention and I end up reading it, but rarely do they fulfill the excitement that I find the blurb has promised me. Here Sally, working mum of two, has been away for a week, supposedly on ... Read the complete review

If you have read my earlier reviews, you will have noticed I am a fan of Sophie Hannah and have enjoyed her first two novels, as I love a good thriller! This, the third is just as good, and I know I have found a new author to enjoy. Sally Thorning is a hard-working mother of two young children. Her husband often seems oblivious to the chaos around him, and Sally often feels she has three children not two! After a particularly stressful day - someone tries to push her under a bus! - Sally is watching the news about the tragic death of a woman and her daughter. When the details are relayed on screen, Sally realises she knows of this family, in ... Read the complete review
