Review

A tour de force - a gripping, twisting, furiously clever read that asks all the right questions and keeps you guessing until the very end. I loved it. (Ruth Ware, author of The Woman in Cabin 10)

I'm calling it: THIS is the book I wish I'd written (Clare Mackintosh, author of I See You)

It's SO good...I was carrying it around the house I was so gripped (Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent)

It's magnificent. Stunningly twisty plot and weep-makingly brilliant writing (Marian Keyes, author of The Woman Who Stole My Life)

Not just a tense psychological drama but a meditation on the complex view. Kelly brilliantly uses the eclipse as metaphor, exploring the fact that though we long for black and white, the partial view is all we ever get. Dive in. (Susie Steiner, author of Missing, Presumed)

Twisted, atmospheric and perfectly plotted. Her best yet. (Jenny Blackhurst, author of How I Lost You)

Deliciously tense and twisty. (Sharon Bolton, author of Daisy in Chains)

Erin Kelly keeps you guessing to the very last page, she cleverly reminds us of our own fallibility and gullibility (Adele Parks, author of The Stranger in My Home)

A taut, cleverly constructed novel about what we see, know and understand - and how they are not always the same thing. Prepare to step into the darkness... (Linda Green, author of While My Eyes Were Closed)

Superbly twisty and readable thriller; pure enjoyment (Jenny Colgan, author of The Little Shop of Happy-Ever-After)

I adored this book, with the clever and claustrophobic relationships between golden couple Laura and Kit and troubled Beth, the girl they meet at a festival in the 90s, where a tragic event shapes all their lives. Kelly flips brilliantly from flashback to present, with vivid writing and a compulsive light and dark story (I ignored my children for the last 30 per cent of the book as I absolutely had to know what happened). Really brilliant.

I read this in less than 24hrs, I couldn't stop reading, I was hooked from the first and it doesn't stop until the final word. An amazing read, fabulous characters, believable settings and a really creepy sense that this situation could really happen. The writing is so accomplished that I could see this becoming a film. Cannot recommend enough!

This book is certainly highly charged and very tense in parts. With a dual timeline alternating between events which start in 1999 and the present day, the book’s narrators are Kit and Laura, two young lovers who are pretty much soul mates from the first time they meet and decide to make their lives together.
Kit is an academic young man, a scientist who is fascinated by solar eclipses and who will travel the world to get the best study vantage point for them. Kit and Laura travel to the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall. They are at a hippy festival where there is to be an eclipse. Kit and his twin Mac, a wayward but attractive young man, have set up a drinks stall at the festival to help them pay their way.
What happened during the festival when they come across Beth and Jamie will set off a chain of events that will follow them through their lives for the next 20 years.
Erin Kelly weaves a beguiling story, shot through with tension and highly charged emotions. She shows how the best of intentions can lead to lies that will impact on those closest to those who tell them and alter the course of their lives forever.
The book is suffused with twists and turns, leading the reader to wonder who can be relied upon for the truth, until it becomes clear that each of the four protagonists has something to hide.
Kelly has produced a deeply thought provoking book which tackles a difficult subject and raises quite a few important questions about the way in which rape is treated in our courts and how and whether the victim is believed.
But this is not just a book about a rape trial; rather it looks at the consequences of relationships in which everyone is being less than honest and how small lies can produce far bigger consequences than those intended.

This is unlike any other psychological thriller I’ve read and I’ve read a lot of psychological thrillers. The book is about a couple, Laura and Kit, who are eclipse chasers and who during one of their trips to watch an eclipse in Cornwall in 1999 chance upon the aftermath of a rape. Being the only witnesses, they have to call the police and so begins the long and protracted case of whether Jamie raped Beth.

The book alternates between Laura and Kit’s viewpoints and a series of flashbacks. These are very well done and rather than leaving the reader confused, as with some books I’ve read that follow this format, they show us a complex picture of flawed characters, all fighting for their own survival.

This is not a thriller that hurtles along at breakneck speed, twisting and turning every which way, but instead the tension is built slowly and ingeniously and the twists are clever and unexpected. One particular twist caught me so off guard that I gasped out loud with surprise,

Over all, this is a thought-provoking book that slowly peels back its many layers and will make you ask yourself whose version of the truth you believe.

I definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading more of Erin Kelly’s books soon.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for their ARC.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is easily one of the best books I've read in ages. It's a gripping thriller - the tension builds steadily, but you know from the start that it's going to get dramatic.

Essentially the story centres around a girl called Laura witnessing a rape while she's at a music festival. She "knows" what she saw is rape, even though the victim didn't confirm this as such - she was in shock after all. A bitterly fought court battle ensues where Laura and her boyfriend are called as witnesses ... with rich parents and top lawyers on his side, the alleged rapist, Jamie Balcombe isn't taking the accusations without a fight.

The consequences of these events (and some deception) haunt all involved for 15 years in as twisty-turny a story as you could hope to find. The twists are ingenious and Erin Kelly is highly skilled in diverting your attention so you don't see the next one coming.

The whole story is framed around eclipses - Laura's boyfriend, Kit, has been brought up chasing eclipses around the world. It's an interesting read for the amazing descriptions and explanations of eclipses alone ... a nice addition to a truly fantastic thriller.

I highly recommend He said/she said for your summer holiday read.
