Description

“A brilliant, breathless thriller that kept me guessing to the last shocking page.” (Erin Kelly, Sunday Times best-selling author of He Said/She Said)

An Amazon Charts and Washington Post best seller

It was supposed to be the perfect reunion: six university friends together again after 20 years. Host Ali finally has the life she always wanted, a career she can be proud of and a wonderful family with her college boyfriend, now husband. But that night her best friend makes an accusation so shocking that nothing will ever be the same again. 

When Karen staggers in from the garden, bleeding and traumatised, she claims that she has been assaulted - by Ali’s husband, Mike. Ali must make a split-second decision: who should she believe? Her horrified husband, or her best friend? With Mike offering a very different version of events, Ali knows one of them is lying - but which? And why?

When the ensuing chaos forces her to re-examine the golden era the group shared at university, Ali realizes there are darker memories too. Memories that have lain dormant for decades. Memories someone would kill to protect.

💐👛💍Annoyingly Materialistic Heroine👠👜🕶🦚🥀

This is just an average thriller, and it’s true, as several other reviewers have noted, that the main character is annoyingly focused on material wealth and material success to the exclusion of almost all else. Her priorities have been so out of whack for so long that it amounts almost to willful blindness. But if you can look past that, it’s a decent thriller. I did correctly guess the identity of the villain about two-thirds of the way through the book, however. Grade: C+/B- Bechdel test: I can’t remember any conversation between two women that did not focus on a man at least tangentially, so possible fail.

Insipid characters - awful story telling

I'm not sure where to start with this one. I feel like I should get a few start for being able to finish it. The protagonist is one of the most unlikable characters I've ever read about in a book. That in and of itself is not the problem - the problem is that I don't think it was the author's intent. As her family and best friend go through the unthinkable, she worries about her beautiful home and her beautiful things, and that's just a start. The author wants us to believe that Ali is a feminist. In fact she works as an advocate for a rape center. Yet, she says things like, "I imagine rape might be a common place thing for this court, while in the previous breath stating that she had been in that same court many times advocating for victims. We also learn that she has no knowledge of family finances...she just spends as it comes in. Did I mention how absolutely helpless, and lacking common sense she is as well? For an Oxford educated woman, she is written as lacking simple intelligence. I also think the author should look up the definition of feminist. The story is predictable, convoluted, and written without the skill of having had the decency to offer a red herring. The performance was just ok - I didn't expect it to be stellar with the awful writing. Found this on the Amazon best seller list.

Great Mystery!

I loved the premise and it didn’t turn out like I thought it would. I could hardly stop listening to it. It was really good!

Great book!

Great book! I could probably identify more with Ali since it wasn't long ago that I found out my husband of 7 years had been seeing my friend for at least two of those years. I know how I felt when my world fell apart. If I'm going to like a book or not depends on my own experiences in life. I recently read a book I first read 30 years ago. This time I didn't like the book at all. Ali is living with her family in England so I don't understand people complaining about the English accent of the woman reading the book!

Not a thriller, just irritating

The internal dialogue of the protagonist was irritating and hard to bear most of the time. The story started out interesting and the only way I got through all of the self-doubt and indecisiveness of Ali is that I truly wanted to find out whodunit. Unfortunately, the story gets tied up in a neat little bow in the final chapters, with a very bad attempt at "the twist". Oh yeah, and let's throw in another "twist" in the epilogue. And finally, the "message" that this book tried hard to ride the plot on was completely lost on me. The power, money, and privilege, or lack thereof, depending on the character really added nothing to the storyline. Pass this one by, unless this is the only book available and you already read the dosage directions on your prescription bottle.

England's Desperate Housewives & Husband's

You and your husband plan a party in your home for your best college buddies 25 years later, and no one could have prepared you for what comes next, or what is revealed. I thought the book was okay for what it was. I was hoping for a better kindle first choice. The premise of the book sounded really interesting as described. I know plenty of people will love this book but for me it was just okay. I didn’t real like any of the characters. The narrator's heavy English accent I found to be quite distracting. The writing is not too bad but this is not a psychological thriller. It's a boring soap opera with the usual lies, betrayals, cheating, drinking until passed out, annoying children, rape, and a 25 year old murder. By process of elimination I guessed the rapist and murderer halfway through the book. I wouldn't recommend this book.

Genius

Wow what a book, loved it. What a creative mind to come up with a book so unique. I could of never guessed or imagined all the twist and turns. We can always judge others but truly never know what we would do if the same thing happen to us and our family and friends.

Not a good choice.

There was not a single redeemable character. Everyone was horrible. What do you do when there is nothing good about a book ?

Not great not terrible

This book was interesting, although the main character irritated me a bit with how naiive she was. I was not entirely captivated by the story, and I think it was because the author could have dove a little deeper into the thoughts and emotions of the characters specially with this kind of topic. All in all however I would recommend this to a friend if they asked for a thriller recommendation, though it would not be my first pick!

Exciting and intriguing until the last page

Six old friends from uni who meet up together after 25 years. They think they know each other... - but do they really? This has kept me up at nights. Great story and great performer. At times a little upsetting how utterly clueless and helpless the protagonist is - but it's credibly explained by the plot. Must-read for fans of psychological thrillers.

Zu viel aber nichts so richtig...

Wir mischen eine Vergewaltigung... nein lieber zwei... oder doch fast drei... mit einer Protagonistin mit traumatischer Kindheit, mit einem betrügenden Ehemann, einer Tochter, die gegen den Willen nackt im Internet erscheint, einem Kuckuckskind, einer Organspende.. und und und.... Ich hatte das Gefühl die Autorin wollte hier alle ihre Ideen auf einmal verbraten, versäumt dabei aber auch nur eine einziges der vielen angerissenen Themen anständig zu Ende zu erzählen. Zwei Sterne, weil ich zumindest bis zum Ende durchgehalten habe. Sprecher super, können aber nicht viel retten.

Solide konstruierte Geschichte

Sechs College Freunde, die ein Geheimnis verbindet. Klar, das ist erst mal nicht neu. Aber im Ganzen ist es eine solide konstruierte, angenehm gesprochen, immer wieder überraschende Geschichte. Für mich sicher nicht das letzte Buch dieser Autorin!
