Publisher's Summary

Someone put her father in his grave. But they didn’t bury his secrets....

Alice is the smart and beautiful daughter of a powerful businessman. She lives a charmed life - until her father is killed in a tragic accident. 

Then she meets Jamie, a young man from a very different background, who has evidence that her father met a much darker end. 

Together they embark upon a search for the truth, delving into the murky background of Alice’s family fortune. What they discover leads Alice to question everything about her father - and herself. But it also turns them into targets. 

Because whoever put Alice’s father in his grave meant his secrets to die with him. And now they’re scrambling to bury them deep. Along with anyone who gets in their way. 

Can Alice unearth the truth before it’s too late? Or will her judgement be clouded by her increasingly strong attraction to Jamie? 

With everyone around her lying, she must pick someone to trust. But get it wrong, and her next move will be her last. 

Start listening today and find out if Alice can avenge her father’s death, or if she will become his killer’s next victim.

Everything a mystery novel should be!

At first I thought the story was predictable, absolutely not! It was so well crafted that each of my initial thoughts were wrong. The end of the story was nothing like I imagined. The characters are well developed & even though the various English lifestyles are "foreign" to me (as a Yankee cousin) they are all quite believable. A great read, you'll enjoy it!

Loved it

Don’t normally listen to audiobooks so it’s taken me a while to get round to it but really loved the book. For me nothing beats the written version but it’s a great story and so does really draw you in. No spoilers! But I’d definitely recommend it if you like thriller/suspense type books.

Very bad, obvious ending

Well what can I say, I thought I was going to read a murder mystery, but this was anything but. It starts as a “mills and boon” yucky romance and then becomes absurd. Apparently you can buy a car and a PAYG phone by cash without any id. Both of which are impossible in modern day UK, in a terrorist age. People leap to conclusions based on next to zero evidence. If you do not guess the “surprise” ending then you really need to get out more. There are no real character here just caricatures, total garbage. I just do not understand the positive reviews. On a plus note the narrator is actually quite good.
