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.

Unexpected

This format is totally different from most audiobooks. It’s completely narrated in first person from different characters. At first I wasn’t sure about it but then as I listened to the different viewpoints and conflicting stories I really wanted to know how things went. It kept my interest for that reason. How reliable are the different characters? It’s maybe not for everyone, but it worked for me.

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.

Gripping !!

I love Kerry Wilkinson’s books, especially his stand alone thrillers and this was no exception. Told in a very unusual
Style as a true crime mystery with interviews with the main protagonists . I could not stop listening . Won’t say more as don’t want to give too much away .

Unusual but brilliant

Absolutely gripped from start to finish, amazingly well performed. Would love to see or read more, and maybe one day discover what really happened

An excellent story told in an alternative format

I really enjoyed this book told from each character's perspective .. I can highly recommend this book. It is best described as a family whodunnit .. although the best way to find out what I mean is to read it yourself you will not be disappointed

Not sure about this one...

I prefer books that are not part of a series, but not this one so much. Format is quite unusual and its hard to follow. I think unless you want to find out a lot about this particular incident, I'm not really sure why you would buy it...

Impossible to follow mish-mash interview format

I was so looking forward to this but just could not follow and was boggle eared trying to sort out who was who and what was happening - no many voices, too much switching back and forth. Might work on the screen where you can see the faces but just too confusing - or should I say too much work when you are looking for a relaxing book to unwind with.
