The pretty market town of Sterndale is a close-knit community where everyone thinks they know everyone else.
But at a lavish summer wedding a local celebrity is discovered slumped in the gardens, the victim of a violent assault that leads to a murder investigation.
As the police search for answers, suspicion and paranoia build – and the lives of the locals are turned upside down.
Secrets that lurk beneath the pristine façade of Sterndale come to light as detectives close in on the truth…
A gripping and moving thriller with the emotional drama of series like BROADCHURCH and LIAR this is the perfect read for fans of Cara Hunter, Heidi Perks and Claire Douglas.
This had lots of red herrings and potential suspects lined up, easily misleading the reader (in this case me) down paths that went nowhere.
A nice, knotty crime novel that had a pleasing ending implying that people can change and make amends for past misdeeds.
