We promised to keep each other’s secrets. Until they found the body…
My husband and I are fighting for our lives in hospital after a terrible car accident. But despite my pain, all I can think about is what our families will find behind our front door. The scarf that has been all over the news, belonging to a dead young woman with honey-coloured hair. I have to speak to the police before my husband can…
I’m drifting in and out of consciousness, but when I hear my wife talking to the police, accusing me of the murder of an innocent woman, a cold fear grips me. I know I’ve got a temper. That I’ve not always been faithful. Will they think I killed her?
I think of my wife’s jealous streak, of the lies she’s told our loved ones. But if I tell the whole truth, they’ll look into her past. And that will destroy me, too…
Two people fighting for their lives. Two people with secrets to hide. Who will you believe?
From the prologue
The second the alleyway illuminated, a face appeared in front of hers. Before she could cry out or step back, a powerful hand covered her mouth roughly. In a flash, she felt some kind of bag being pulled over her head and tightened around her neck. She opened her mouth to scream but was knocked sideways, heavy blows raining down on her head. She slumped against the wall and slid slowly down it.
I just finished reading a book by K. L. Slater, and it was worth the wait. It took a while for NetGalley to approve my request, but I’m glad they did. Slater is a master of psychological thrillers, and this one, although more of a domestic thriller, was still fantastic. The characters are so well-written that you can’t help but develop strong feelings towards them. The story is told from different points of view throughout the different chapters, and it’s full of twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. If you’re a fan of thrillers, I highly recommend this book.
Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for allowing me to read and review this book.
