One girl jumped. And then another followed…
In the city of Bristol, young women are dying in mysterious circumstances. The deaths look like suicides – but are they something more sinister?
Honor is terrified that her daughter might be next. But as she looks for clues as to what really happened to the girls, she stumbles upon a link to a dark secret in her own past – one that she’s kept from her daughter.
Now Honor has the chance to avenge her child for the terrible events of years ago. But how far will she go to protect her daughter and right the wrongs done to her family?
This was really good and very clever. I couldn’t tell where it was going to end up. Mel McGrath writes enjoyable thrillers which keep you guessing so I knew this would be good, and it was. What starts out with a dramatic life or death moment on Bristol’s famous bridge takes a turn into some dark places, a world of corrupt academics and vulnerable young women, murder and revenge.
Honor and Nevis are engaging and realistic protagonists, I felt for them as they navigated their relationship while dealing with the distressing events happening around them.
