Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The Storys are the envy of their neighbours: owners of the largest property on their East Coast island, they are rich, beautiful and close. Until it all falls apart. The four children are suddenly dropped by their mother with a single sentence: you know what you did.

They never hear from her again.

Years later, when 18-year-old cousins Aubrey, Milly and Jonah Story receive a mysterious invitation to spend the summer at their grandmother's resort, they have no choice but to follow their curiosity and meet the woman who's been such an enigma their entire lives.

This entire family is built on secrets, right? It's the Story legacy.

This summer, the teenagers are determined to discover the truth at the heart of their family. But some secrets are better left alone.

The brilliant new thriller from the international best-selling author of One of Us Is Lying, Karen M. Mcmanus.

So so good

I often find it hard to listen to audio books because I'm picky with the narration, but this was so good and the story kept me hooked the entire time. Feeling my heart race at the intense moment just showed how invested I was. Definitely recommend to those who enjoy this author's other books

Another great McManus!

What can I say, another great story from Karen McManus. I really enjoyed the plot twists and did not see the end coming. Definitely recommend.

I LOVE KAREN MCMANUS!!

I’ve always loved Karen McManus books since I was 10. But this (apart from Two can keep a secret), this is probably one of my favourites. I would like a sequel, though. Now that one of the villains are at large. Anyway though, this is brilliant.

Lame ending

An enjoyable listen up to a point, but an incredibly lame, unbelievable resolve. Disappointing in the end.
