Publisher's Summary

On a beautiful island, under the Mediterranean sun, two families enjoy a well-deserved holiday. Then, one balmy evening, Emma's father is found unconscious on the sand. Everyone is hiding secrets. Who will you believe?

Emma: I went up to Daniel, sunning himself by the pool, to break the news. They’ve been best friends for years, but it was like he didn’t care that Dad was in hospital. Like it wasn’t a surprise. Like he knew.

Daniel: That girl’s deluded. No one knows where she was the night her dad ended up on the beach. And as for what she did to her own child...well, it’s her parents I feel sorry for. Imagine having a daughter like that and knowing what she did.

Emma: I’ve never trusted Daniel. And then I found the envelope, tucked away in Dad’s luggage. It explained so much. There’s a reason someone wanted to hurt him. I may have made mistakes, but I’ve never lied like Dad has.

Daniel: That girl knows more than she’s letting on.

Emma: Someone knows that I know, and they’ll do anything to keep me quiet. We’re trapped on the island, and I can’t trust any of them.

A unique and totally gripping psychological thriller.

Interesting?

The idea of this book is really good, but I found it difficult to listen to and wonder how it came off in print—- instead of alternating perspectives one chapter or one part at a time this book alternates approximately every twelve seconds. There are parts where each line switches between characters and not in a dialogue but almost like they’re interrupting each other which made it a little frustrating to listen to. You’ve probably seen TV shows like CSI where there’s maybe a one minute clip of the police interviewing multiple suspects one at a time and the camera cuts back and forth. It works well on film for a minute to demonstrate the vasty different perspectives, but when you’re listening to it for some reason it was just annoying.

I also strongly disliked the lack of resolution at then, despite the author’s attempt to justify it.
