What’s it about?
In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura witnesses a brutal attack.
She and her boyfriend Kit call the police, and in that moment, four lives change forever.
Fifteen years on, Laura and Kit live in fear.
And while Laura knows she was right to speak out, she also knows that you can never see the whole picture: something is always hidden… something she never could have guessed.
Set against the natural phenomena of various eclipses this was one of those books you go into thinking it’s about one thing but then ends up being something else. You know with the title and the first few chapters what you think it’ll be but that’s where it ends.
As a female reader my natural and first instinct was to believe the ‘she said’ but as I read on, and only by my own interpretation and prediction (not what I read), I thought we were heading down the road of hang on a minute, what if she’s lying and I shouldn’t be giving her the benefit of the doubt. As regular readers will know, I’m crap at predicting what’s coming and needless to say it was no different in this case 😉
I thought this book was brilliantly written although somewhat slow in places that I wanted it all to move on a little quicker but I couldn’t fault the drama, the tension and all the twisty bits down to the last sentence and I didn’t have a clue what was coming (coz I’m rubbish!).
