‘Had me gripped from the first few pages, and at no point does the story disappoint. Love a good twist? This is the ULTIMATE thriller.’ The Bookshelf Blog

The suspense is epic in Kathryn Croft’s latest novel. The fear and dread she generates is for me what makes her one of THE best thriller writers. The shocks just keep coming and the ending is just how I wanted to it to be. It’s just perfect.Postcard Reviews

A powerhouse of emotions . . . Put simply, it’s wickedly engaging, and one I’d absolutely recommend.’ Little Bookness Lane

‘This book really surprised me. Considering the fact that I have read more thriller books and watched more thriller/mystery shows than I can count I have pretty much resigned myself to the fact that nothing could surprise me any more. Guess what?? This book has taught me there are still books out there in the mystery genre that could surprise me . . . I would recommend this book to all the mystery lovers out there. I don't remember the last time I enjoyed a thriller/mystery genre book this much.’ Nair the Critique

    This story will keep you on edge. Did not expect the outcome. The ending was a shocker. The third person was not who I suspected. Will recommend for reading.
  • Great title

    Captivating yet dark. Not a fan of ending so don’t expect it tied up in a bow.
  • Not worth it, even it was free

    By BFP77
    The writing just isn’t good. The dialogue is horrid and the whole story is rushed. It actually became quite comical to keep reading to see another major conflict scenario resolve itself in a few sentences. The main character often comments to herself “that was too easy.” The author’s attempt at explaining away some very lazy writing. Don’t trust the other reviews here. This seems like a digital only book that was quickly written and published in order to ride the coattails of authors like Gillian Flynn. If you’re a fan of that genre, you will be extremely disappointed in this book.

    A suspenseful read. A couple too many people to keep up w/, which I guess made the unknown character chapters guessing who it was...& was worth it
