Product Description

When the body of Isla’s brother, an ex-Marine and private investigator, is pulled from the River Clyde, she is convinced he was murdered. When the coroner declares Dougie’s died of accidental drowning and rules out foul play, the police are happy to close the case. But Isla has other ideas.

Determined to find out what really happened the night Dougie died, and why he was even in Glasgow, she starts looking into his unsolved cases. What she finds will put her in grave danger and force her to question everything she thought she knew about those closest to her . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and fast-paced psychological thriller 5 Jun 2014
By Ismay1012 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Julie Corbin writes superb psychological thrillers that always keep you on the edge of your seat, never knowing what will happen next. I’ve read and enjoyed ‘Tell Me No Secrets’, Where The Truth Lies’ and ‘Do Me No Harm’, so when I had the chance of reading an early reading copy of ‘Now That You’ve Gone’ in exchange for an honest review I was both excited and thrilled to bits. I was not disappointed and spent time soaking in every detail of another master class in this genre.

Isla and Dougie are twins and very close indeed. When the story starts we learn that Isla is divorced with two children and working in the same firm as her brother, an ex Marine turned Private Investigator. They have another married sister; the baby of their family, living in Norway and their father is newly widowed. When she is called upon to identify her beloved brother’s body in Glasgow she is in denial. Dougie had always told her everything and he had not mentioned a forthcoming trip to Glasgow. Worst of all it appeared to be an accidental drowning, but Dougie had been trained in self-defence and could swim like a fish. Nevertheless Dougie’s body had been hauled out of the River Clyde: it was the truth he was dead. She was both heartbroken and mystified. When the police investigation outcome stated that the death was indeed an accident Isla is furious and refuses to accept that there was no foul play.

Isla is driven to find out the truth of how Dougie died. She begins by searching his house and going through the cases he had been working on. She visits the scene of his death in a very dodgy area and cannot believe what Doug was even doing in such a dangerous place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent suspence 11 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This was one excellent book fro Julie Corbin. I've purchased to other of her book because of this.

We have twins. One female, one male. Isla and Douggie.

They were both very close [as twins usually are] growing up together, playing together, fighting and then supporting each other. They had another sister, but the relationship between Isla and her sister was a bit strained.

Isla one day is told by Police that her brother has been found dead. She is in total shock, then denial as a twin, surely she would have known, she would have 'felt' something?

She is devastated when she has to go and identify his body.

Her ex husband is a Police Officer.

Isla is not only grieving that her brother is dead, but she is 100% sure he must have been murdered. As the reports come in that he was drinking and that is why he fell into the Glasgow's Clyde river. But Isla cannot compute this, he was ex marines, he was a good swimmer, he didn't drink much. How could this be?

She informs the Police, but although they listen to her, its reported as an accidental death.
She turns to her ex husband. They are close anyway due to the fact they have children together and he and his new partner have them over with them on a regular basis. Her ex doesn't agree either.

Who is she to turn to?

It presses on from there. She uncovers many things along the way, no answers to it, but discoveries.

The ending was not what I would have guessed, awesome ending, the author really kept that under wraps right until the end.

I felt like I was actually 'in' this story as Isla was unfolding everything page by page.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tension filled family drama 26 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Try and imagine you're a twin (I'm an only child so it's not easy) If you had a twin brother, whom you adored, who supported you through lifes ups and downs, who had always been there for you, since before either of you saw the light of day and if that brother died suddenly and prematurely, you'd feel that loss very keenly wouldn't you? Then, if even the tiniest of doubts arose in your mind regarding the way he died, you'd put everything aside to find out exactly how and why he was torn from your life so cruelly.

Well, that's what Isla McTeer does. This is very much a character driven novel with a strong and exciting mystery running through it and I so related to Isla, she's a single parent of two great kids, she works hard and has a rather fractured family who nevertheless provide a secure framework for her life.

When her twin brother Dougie a private investigator is pulled from the river Clyde (yes it's set in Scotland - didn't you guess from the names?) she is devastated and angry, he was an ex-marine for goodness sake how could he be so foolish as to get drunk and fall into the river after a night boozing in Glasgow and drown?

After the funeral a her grief subsides into dull dismay she re-examines the facts about his death (something she has learnt to do very thoroughly in her job as an insurance investigator) and she decides it can't have been an accident, and when she enlists the help of her ex-husband, a police officer, despite his insistence that her fears are ungrounded, more doubts begin to arise and she begins her own amateur investigation and becomes far more involved than she bargains for.
