Five women; pretty, privileged, perfect, and ultimately protected… but not for long…
It was ‘their’ dark secret. For twenty-two-years ‘they’ kept it buried. Time hasn’t healed my wounds. Instead, they’ve festered. Their actions went unpunished. Until now…
Shamed, scarred, and shunned, I watched, waited and plotted how to shatter ‘their’ enviable lives. Now, finally, they will suffer as I did in ‘their’ cruel hands that fateful night.
Time’s up. I am here for you, Dr Claudia Harper. But first, you’ll witness your childhood friends, one by one, beg for mercy.
And I’ve saved the best ‘til last, so watch your back; I’m closer than you think. I’m here to expose your best friend’s secret. The one you’ve all kept hidden...until now.
This is one of those books where the tension grips you right from the start and only intensifies as you delve deeper into Claudia’s tumultuous life. At first, I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about Claudia as a character, but as her predicament started to spiral out of control, I found myself becoming more and more invested in her story. I couldn’t help but wonder what on earth was happening and how it would all unfold.
Just when you think things couldn’t possibly get any worse for Claudia, the author throws in unexpected twists and turns that leave you breathless. This read had me on the edge of my seat, eagerly flipping through the pages to see what would happen next. It felt like navigating through a complex maze, with each new revelation adding another layer of intrigue and suspense.
What sets this book apart is its clever and masterful execution. The author skillfully weaves together multiple storylines and threads, creating a web of mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end. The way the plot unfolds is truly remarkable, with every piece of the puzzle fitting together perfectly.
I have to admit, this book was a real page-turner. I found myself completely absorbed in Claudia’s world, eagerly devouring each chapter to uncover the truth behind her tumultuous life. It’s a testament to the author’s talent that they were able to create such a captivating and gripping story. If you’re looking for a book that will keep you hooked from start to finish, this is definitely the one to pick up.
