About this deal

We are left guessing as to who is the criminal - is it Gemma's jilted boyfriend (Alex), is it Ed's unstable ex-spouse, is it Gemma's creepy tutor, is it the strange woman who appeared from time to time to unnerve Rachel or is it someone else on the periphery.

So their daughter gets shot and both Rachel and Ed are demanding answers from the police, all the while keeping things from the police that could actually help the case!Teresa Driscoll is a former BBC TV news presenter whose psychological thrillers have sold two million copies across the world. I think my biggest gripe was the secrets in general seemed a bit unnecessary, like characters thinking 'this might be relevant, but I won't tell anyone'. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. But within pages I soon discovered I was wrong, as a character or fact was introduced which opened up a realm of new possibilities. Once again she has delivered, crafting a fast-paced psychological thriller that sizzles with suspense and foreboding.

But now, on a solo business trip, in a remote coastal hotel, he’s surprised to find Lisa in his bathroom. I knew this was going to be a great read from the beginning and, even though I guessed how some of the story would conclude, I enjoyed the buzz as the plot reached its climax. Of course it could be that I read too many books about dysfunctional families so don’t realise how little pressure is required to bring someone to tipping point.From the seemingly inconsequential beginning when Gemma chooses a lemon, instead of a pink dress, to the ringing out of a bullet that finds its mark, this escalates into a high stakes thriller that does not let the reader go until the final page. it was a Kindle First read and I chose it as this is my fourth one by her and she's never let me down before. commas missing, flake used in the context here needed capitalising and she persistently misses the apostrophe when writing ladies' or gents', which is distracting. Ed and Rachel are shocked, as are all the others watching, as they learn that she has been shot in the leg, and has hurt her head while falling.

The incorporation of the varying timeline does not lessen the pace, instead taking you down paths that draw you closer to the shooter, or more accurately who appears to be the shooter.It's certainly a tragedy, watching Gemma's parents remain by the daughter's bedside, waiting for her to wake up from a coma. This grossly oversimplified understanding has created many complexities in our lives and taken away from us the very fundamentals of the joy of living.
