I just couldn't put this book down A real page turner. Set in the world of the criminal justice system, the action ebbs and flows with fluency between the U.K. and Australia. Fast paced, with totally believable characters the story line soon sucks you in and doesn't let go until the last page. Brilliantly written thriller. Highly recommended.

I greatly enjoyed this book. I liked the way coincidence didn't play too great a part, the way the police and lawyers struggled to understand the crimes, the implications, the evidence (or lack of), and the workload. It was realistic, and satisfying following the progress of the cases which was often achingly slow.

Eccentric (read 'unpleasant') billionaire Paulie Smith is accused of the murder of a lad. He jumps bail and escapes to Australia followed by his lawyer, Roland Metcalfe, with his wife, Hailey, and son. Hailey is delighted to be in Australia, far from her domineering father, and hopes her husband can fix it so they never return to the UK.

Meanwhile, the mother of the murdered boy is distraught and intent on vengeance. She plots the murder of the person she believes killed her son, and sets in motion a sequence of events that will prove to be tragic for all concerned.

The main characters are not terribly sympathetic, but behave authentically. The author has not tried to portray them in a way designed to manipulate our emotions, but has a flawed set of professional cops and lawyers and others, each one with his or her own ambitions, motivations and problems. The only person to come out of the story well is Hugo, the son of Hailey who saw what he didn't want to see and had to face the consequences.

For those who like a realistic account of legal wrangling, free of gratuitous violence or sensational action, with the emphasis on human relationships, the frustrations of the law, and the foibles of each and every one, then they will enjoy this book.

The text is well written, but with some typos.

This read was one of those that I could have abandoned at any time.l wish I had! Back and forth london to Sydney ,the storyline got distorted as did (in my opinion) the writer who seemed to take suicide as an easy way out of unanswered questions.left room for a sequel but I don't think I'll bother.

I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller. I read a lot of thrillers and this was quite unique. I have only given it four as too many peoples endings were similar and I thought this unlikely, although I won't spoli it. I feel it is worth reading.

It was ok. I sometimes read a book twice, but not this one unfortunately. I stuck with it to the end though.

Enjoyed this book as plot and main characters well written.
Type of book that keeps you guessing and interested throughout.
Would appeal to crime thriller fans who enjoy something other than the norm.
