Review

When a thriller leaves you looking over your shoulder, it's a sign the author's doing something right. In fact Durrant doesn't put a foot wrong with this assured and deeply unsettling chiller... Superb (Sunday Mirror)

Spellbindingly dark and intense drama (Heat)

Grips immediately... Durrant sustains the mystery throughout and offers a clever resolution (The Times)

This is one super-disturbing psychological thriller (Woman & Home)

Durrant's debut, UNDER YOUR SKIN, was among the best of the wave of psychological thrillers that appeared in the wake of Gone Girl's success. REMEMBER ME THIS WAY is better still...An elegant, quietly chilling illustration of the ways in which lovers blind themselves to reality (Mail on Sunday)

A writer who can leave you breathless with anticipation...A superb book, from start to finish. (Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls)

From its brilliant yet heart-breaking opening to its unexpected and shocking ending, it took me on an exhilarating and relentless journey until the very last page...as tense and terrifying as they come (Samantha Hayes, author of Until You’re Mine)

Totally gripped me: twisty, dark, beguiling. Just my kind of story. Brilliant. (Julia Crouch, author of Cuckoo and The Long Fall)

An intelligent, compelling tale...both well constructed and suspenseful (Paula Daly, author of Just What Kind of Mother Are You?)

Fresh and compelling prose, packed with twists. A treat. (Sarah Hilary, author of Someone Else's Skin)

Tense and gripping ... a world that will leave readers desperately racing to the truth, along with Lizzie, via twists and turns that will give you goose bumps. An exceedingly good read (We Love This Book)

Creepy and emotionally acute (Andrew Taylor Spectator)

Durrant is too cool simply to indulge the obvious. Brilliant on social signifiers and observation, her intelligent interpretation of the world and its psychologically complex inhabitants shines all the way to a satisfactory ending (Daily Mail)

If Sabine Durrant's previous psychological thriller UNDER YOUR SKIN, was indebted to Agatha Christie, the centrality of Cornwall in REMEMBER ME THIS WAY suggests Christie has been displaced by Daphne du Maurier.... While UNDER YOUR SKIN was striking, this is a stronger performance. (Sunday Times)

Alternating between Lizzie's narrative and Zach's diary, it's splendidly creepy, with plenty of paranoia (Guardian)

By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 17 July 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
Sometimes you know a book is for you from the very first page and for me, this was one of those books.

Valentine’s Day 2012 was the date of Zach Hopkins accident; tragically his car turned into a fire-ball after hitting a tree. It takes Lizzie a whole year before she is strong enough to visit the site of his death and his cottage in Cornwall. Reaching the tree which he’d hit with a bunch of flowers she notices another offering to Zach from Xenia, someone she has never heard of.

… and so the story begins. Told in the years running up to his death by Zach and in the present day by Lizzie, his widow. After finding the flowers Lizzie realises there was a lot about Zach that she didn’t know and when she starts her own investigations she realises there were far more gaps than she could have imagined. To make matters worse Lizzie is sure someone is following her and. Lizzie’s sister Peggy believes that this is because she is grieving, the problem was that Lizzie hadn’t been entirely honest with anyone before Zach’s death.

Sabine Durrant has created a truly terrifying character in Zach and Lizzie’s revelations about what life was like with her husband are all the more chilling because of the matter of fact way they are relayed. Zach’s own assessment of his relationship with Lizzie is even more disturbing. With Zach’s narrative echoing Lizzies many chapters later is an excellent device that allows the reader to see two sides of the same story without it appearing repetitive.

I rarely mention the ending of a book in my review because I don’t want to spoil the book for others but I’m going to break my own rules here by saying: the ending wasn’t what I expected but it wasn’t a disappointment either.

Wow, what a cleverly written story of the kind I love most, twisted and devious with a menacing feel which creeps up on you. A psychological thriller with strong domestic interest it is told in first person and jumps from the perspective of Lizzie, in the present time dealing with the aftermath of her husband's death and the voice of Zach her late husband telling the story of how they met.

After the funeral Lizzie the cracks in her relationship with Zach begin to be revealed, despite loving him intensely she was planning to leave him just before his death and she begins to wonder if this played any part in the accident which killed him, but as her friends and sister worry about her frail state of mind, she begins to feel he may not even BE dead, is this her reaction to grief or does she have grounds for believing she is being followed. Is her head being messed with or is she just crumbling after her loss?

Neither narrator is the most reliable and as you get to know them both closely being sucked into their minds via their voices, you get to have a little sympathy for both, then realise both have huge character flaws and its up to you to decide which one is telling the closest to the truth and discover why they acted as they did. We also meet Onnie an anguished teenager (also with a hidden agenda and secrets) and there's Howard, Lizzies dog about whom I became increasingly worried, she is so wrapped up in her grief and obsessions that she misses the fact that the poor animal's obviously suffering himself.

The ending is as clever as the beginning and even though I guessed Onnies secret early on, waiting to see if and how it would be revealed was rewarding enough.

It's creepy and insidious and will have you looking over your shoulder.

When I find myself sneaking my kindle into the loo with me, I know I have found a darn good book. I could reel off a whole string of words to describe it: Twisted, devious, controlling, passionate, lies, calculating, deceitful, vengeful to name but a few.

Twelve months after her husband Zach was killed in a car accident, Lizzie goes to lay flowers at the scene, only to find out that someone has beaten her to it. Who has already left flowers at the scene? It seems she didn’t know as much about Zach as she thought she did, but over the course of the book she is going to discover a lot more about him.

The story is told partly in the present from Lizzie’s perspective, from the moment she goes to the accident site onward, deciding to delve into Zach’s past to try and solve the mystery of the flower giver. As she does this, a string of strange events leaves her doubting what she has been told about Zach’s death. Something is not right, someone is messing with her – or are they? Could her sister and friend be right and it just be that her mind is unsettled because of the grieving process?

It is also told from Zach’s point of view. He tells us the story of how they met and their marriage. I don’t want to spoil the read for anyone else, but Zach’s testimony made chilling reading.

The two strands of the story eventually converge and all the little clues that the author dropped subtly into the book all suddenly make sense. Although my mind had been working overtime trying to piece the puzzle together, I was still surprised by the ending.

This read is highly recommended and I have to thank the publisher for a copy of the book in return for a review.
