Thank you to NetGalley for the chance to read this gripping book before it is released in the U.K. on the 15th April 2021.
Twenty-one years ago, Dr Richard Carter and his wife Pamela were murdered in what has become the most infamous double murder of the modern age.
Ten-year-old Sara Carter – nicknamed the Angel of Death – spent eight years in a children’s secure unit and is living quietly under an assumed name with a family of her own.
Now, on the anniversary of the trial, a documentary team has tracked down her older sister Shannon Carter, compelling her to break two decades of silence.
Her explosive interview sparks national headlines and journalist Brinley Booth, a childhood friend of the Carter sisters, is tasked with covering the news story.
For the first time, the three women are forced to confront what really happened on that blood-soaked night – with devastating consequences for them all.
Oh my, what a gripping read! This is my first encounter with Fiona Cummins but since finishing I have been scrambling around looking to download every other book she has written!
I have to be honest and say that it took me a couple of chapters to get hooked as I found Catherine quite a strange character who wasn’t very likeable. However, as I read on I felt that this was deliberate and as the story progressed and we learned little snippets about her life, I became completely gripped with the story that was unfolding.
Brinley Booth has a very intriguing part to play in this whole story as she was there from the very beginning. Brave, dedicated and sincere are the words I would use to describe her. For me, she was the heroine in this story and I respected the way she stood up and took responsibility for her part in the historical events and did her best to make things right. I just wanted a ‘happily ever after’ for her!
There is certainly a lot of tension in the story which keeps you gripped and unable to put this book down! A must read for those who love psychological thrillers.
