Summary

The unmissable thriller from the best-selling author and screenwriter of Netflix movie The Weekend Away

In a cabin in a wood,

A woman by the window stood.

Glancing out, she thought she heard

Footsteps, whistling, something stirred.

Hiding here, she fears the night,

For what’s done in the dark will come to light.

She must run fast to escape her lie

Or she’ll be the next to die....

©2022 Sarah Alderson (P)2022 HarperCollins Publishers Limited

Stick with it

Bit slow to start and I find the American accents very grating personally. The second half of the book heats up and everything starts making sense. Everything is wrapped up neatly and ending is satisfying!

why do good stories always have to have such pathetic endings?

I liked this story until around chapter 45 or so when there appeared a plot hole. How did the doctor get the phone and the blood report to Isabel and how did she get it to a news network in the time it takes for orderlies to attempt to make the transfer? Then the ending. What utter rot it was. i mean, so darned moralistic and gushy it almost made me sick. In fact, it would have done if I’d had a handy sick bowl to vomit in to. Thank goodness i haven’t had my dinner yet.

I have been a fan of Sarah alderson and this is the one I have rate a 4⭐️. Just a little disappointed with this one. Fast paced and not as clear a day.
Rose is been to a very abusive father. Her mum died on overdose . She got a sister who died in a an overdose too . She met his love of his life Ryan , a super wealthy bachelor who will run for president in the future.
Rose was so happy she though she met the love of her life until a girl she though Ryan cheating on his confess something to her .
She then realised that her sister confess the same thing .
She then left with her daughter and she did not bucked her daughter and ending it was dead.
Ryan now puts her in a asylum but the mystery girl help her how to make revenge.
Twisty story . Shocking ending .

Same story no new twist

Despite the fact that story started off sounding promising, I soon realized that it was a story told hundreds of times with no interesting new take on the subject.
Worse, the narrator mispronounced words and there was so much British English and UK phrases in the story, that it really lost all authenticity for me.
It was as if the writer took a bunch of gossip headlines from US media and threw EVERY possible trope into this book. Politics- check! Scandal- check! Corruption- why not?! Substance abuse- sure! Rich vs poor- heck yes! Guilt- a little. Crime- yes! Manipulation- oh yeah!
It’s been done as nauseam. This was just ridiculous at times and unbelievable. I only keep listening because I though it was going to end with a certain twist, which never came. Don’t waste your time or credits.

Loved it!!

When I started I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, but this was a great suspense thriller!

The main character is such a well-rounded character. She had an extremely difficult childhood. Her parents were drug addicts and spent any money they had on drugs. So she and her little sister had to steal food just to stay alive. Then years later she meets Ryan, a wealthy man with political aspirations. But all is not what she thinks.

If you enjoy suspenseful thrillers, you will love this one!

The narrator did a very good job making you feel what the character was feeling, which was a lot.
