Another great novel by Clare Mackintosh
11 April 2018
I gave this five stars because, like her previous novels, Clare writes with good pace, with an intriguing story to tell and some twists along the way. The ending is sound, and I appreciated the topical issues of mental health which were explored, running like a thread throughout the book. Like her, I'm an ex police officer so it's important to me that the story is realistic from a procedural point of view, and also plausible. My only criticism is that there was maybe one twist too many - it made me smile rather than intrigued me. I hope Clare won't feel so obliged to provide shock twists in her future books that they become forced or predictable. For now, she remains one of my favourite authors and I will certainly recommend her to my friends.
