Genre – Psychological Thriller
Blurb: Your husband goes out to buy a newspaper. He never comes back. Months later, an unexpected phone call puts you and your daughter in unimaginable danger.
Even if he were still alive, your husband can’t save you now.
He told you way too many lies for that.
My Review: This book certainly kept me gripped and I couldn’t put it down. A taut nerve tingling story about a missing husband and some dark family secrets. Several times throughout the book I thought I had worked it out (my amateur detective skills unfortunately aren’t that good as each time I thought I had “sussed” it I found out I was wrong). Samantha Hayes has a real talent for writing a book full of tension and twists. Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for my ARC copy.
About the Author: Samantha Hayes grew up in Warwickshire, left school at sixteen, avoided university and took jobs ranging from being a private detective to barmaid to fruit picker and factory worker. She lived on a kibbutz, and spent time in Australia and the USA, before finally becoming a crime-writer.
Her writing career began when she won a short story competition in 2003. Her novels are family-based psychological thrillers, with the emphasis being on ‘real life fiction’. She focuses on current issues and sets out to make her readers ask, ‘What if this happened to me or my family?’
