Product Description

Product Description

Nat Keane never forgot her first murder. Sandie Thurston was killed and mutilated in her own bed. Five-year-old Amy lay beside her, soaked in her mother’s blood.

Nat was the first police officer on the scene. She was the family liaison officer who got close to the family. Too close. When a man was convicted, she walked away, lonely and broken.

Ten years on she has another life. She has a job she loves counselling trauma victims and a home with her partner, Dylan, a criminal lawyer. So when Martin, husband of the murdered Sandie, asks her to work with him and Amy, why does she agree to go back?

Amy's evidence was key to getting a conviction. Now the media are hinting that she got it wrong. Martin is tortured by a guilt he won’t explain. At fifteen, Amy is alternately needy and hostile – a devoted daughter who deceives her father, a sheltered child who can’t stop taking risks.

As Nat is drawn into the family's secrets, is she helping them find the truth or complicit in their lies? Who did kill Sandie? And why, just when Nat needs Dylan's support, is he distracted by a controversial case of his own?

Recognition is a compelling novel of psychological suspense, set in and around Leeds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great End that Creeps Up on You 2 April 2013
By Ashrae
Format:Kindle Edition
On the face of it, this book kinda creeps up on you. There are two main story lines that cross with each other a little bit, separate, one concludes and the other takes you all the way to the end. The pacing of these appear gentle compared with some "rollercoaster" books but it is a skill of the author that the attention is kept throughout the book without the need for any theatrics!
The characters are great, real and well fleshed out. You really do care about some and loathe others and change your mind about some several times through the book.
There were some times during the book where I admit to being a bit confused about where we were going, but it all tied up nicely so I really didn't need to have fretted!
The end... well, I never really saw that coming! I also, despite what I said earlier about the gentle pacing, suddenly realised through the last few scenes that I was actually holding my breath!
With the main characters doing the jobs they do, I wonder if we will hear more from them in the future... Hope so.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 6 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This one kept me guessing - and entertained - until the end. Not too bleak as to be depressing, but most of the characters have issues to deal with which rang true. The plot is well supported by all of the detail about the geographic location in which the novel is set. Also found the prison-related details interesting - taken from the author's time as a probation officer? Highly recommend.
