Publisher's Summary

Imagine that you live on a picturesque communal garden square, an oasis in urban London where your children run free, in and out of other people's houses. You've known your neighbors for years and you trust them. Implicitly. You think your children are safe. But are they really? On a midsummer night, as a festive neighborhood party is taking place, preteen Pip discovers her 13-year-old sister Grace lying unconscious and bloody in a hidden corner of a lush rose garden. What really happened to her? And who is responsible?

    "Not as good as some of her others but still worth"

    ...a listen. If you haven't read Lisa Jewel before, I'd suggest The House We Grew Up In or The Making of Us before this one. Both are on audio and are 4.5 star listens IMHO.

    I did enjoy this, nonetheless. It just seemed as if her usual stellar character development and ability to put a mystery into the middle of a family drama story was a bit lacking.

    The audio narrator was also a bit of an issue. Because there were so many POV switches, the narrator should have paused between them. She didn't--at ALL. So we're in one person's head then it switches to another person's POV and sometimes it took a few seconds to realize. Not that big of a deal except for the fact that the POV switches are quite frequent.
