It’s the early hours of the morning and Rose Denton wakes up behind the steering wheel of her car. She’s off the road, through a hedge and in a field.
There’s blood on the windscreen and bonnet – but it’s not hers and there’s no sign of anything or anyone she might have hit. The last thing she remembers is being in a hotel on a business trip but now she’s miles away.
Back home and her daughter’s boyfriend is missing. The last thing he did was argue with Rose over money. He left no note, no text, no clue as to his whereabouts.
The police have questions – and so does Rose’s family. But those are little compared to the ones she has for herself.
What happened last night? And, perhaps more importantly, does she really want to know the answer?
Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley and for letting me take part in this tour.
The blurb is quite disturbing in an intriguing way and the opening of the book is the same. It’s the early hours of the morning and Rose Denton is in her car, everything is where it should be except, there’s blood on the windscreen. Rose has no idea where she is, how she got there or, more importantly, who’s blood is on her windscreen.
Rose’s life is falling apart around her. Her and her husband are going through the motions but it’s obvious that there’s nothing between them anymore. She often fights with her daughter Olivia especially about her boyfriend Tyler and then there’s Jason.
This is the first book I have read by Kerry and he does an excellent job of building the suspense and mystery. By the end of the book poor Rose is losing her mind. She suspects nearly everyone in her life is playing a trick on her and she has no idea who to trust. In all honesty nor did I. Nothing seemed to make sense and that was the point. When it came to the big reveal I was shocked. I didn’t see it coming but it was oh so good.
I thoroughly enjoyed this twisty turny ride that Kerry took me on. I have a few of Kerry’s books on my TBR pile and I am looking forward to another one in the near future.
