SYNOPSIS (From Goodreads)
Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you.
Louise Leighton’s life has fallen apart, all because of one fateful night. Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.
Eighteen-year-old Brooke Leighton is missing. It’s up to Louise and the Metropolitan Police to find her. Has Brooke run away? Or has she been taken against her will? And can Louise aid the investigation without mentioning the night where all of her troubles began?
If she mentions that night, she will incriminate her daughter for heinous crimes. But if she doesn’t, she may never find Brooke; and if she has been abducted, the person who took her may come for Louise, too.
Sometimes the past comes back to kill you.
This book was unputdownable! It wasn't a book where you had to read a few chapters before you were hooked, I was hooked from the start. I was really intrigued as to what this terrible family secret was that could split a family apart completely, affecting all members of the family in different ways. The author had made the characters really personable and very real.
The storyline was fantastic and utterly believable. There were so many factors to it and the author pulled them together with ease.
It was emotional and upsetting as it was tearing a very close family apart with the son Dominic having to go through things no young boy should have to go through. It was also gripping at the same time with some amazing twists and turns, usually Louise being at the end of something terrifying. Without adding any spoilers it was utterly intriguing and I couldn't put the book down as I wanted to keep reading to see who was behind all the bad things that was happening.
If you want a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat then you have to read this. I also think it would make a great screenplay.
An amazing debut novel!! I am going to be watching out for Jack Jordans next book and hoping it's every bit as good as this one.
