As a child, it was just a game. As an adult, it was a living nightmare.
‘This time it’s different. She’s gone too far now.
She really has.’
When teenage friends Lizzie and Alice decide to head off for a walk in the countryside, they are blissfully unaware that this will be their final day together – and that only Lizzie will come back alive.
Lizzie has no memory of what happened in the moments before Alice died, she only knows that it must have been a tragic accident. But as she tries to cope with her grief, she is shocked to find herself alienated from Alice’s friends and relatives. They are convinced she somehow had a part to play in her friend’s death.
Twelve years later, unpacking boxes in the new home she shares with her fiancé, Lizzie is horrified to find long-buried memories suddenly surfacing. Is the trauma of the accident finally catching up with her, or could someone be trying to threaten her new-found happiness?
Twelve years is a long time to wait, when you’re planning the perfect revenge . . .
This book has now made me want to read Lesley’s other books, it was a really good story that had anticipation, twists and turns that kept on coming through out. It held my attention and was intriguing all the way through. The story is about Alice and what happened to her and her best friend when they were kids, the story is set in the present but does go back to the day that changed everything and everyone. A number of years later Alice is moving into her her new home with her fiancé and living a good life when it all comes crashing down again as a surprise visitor turns up, who is it and what do they want? I found this story really addictive and can’t wait to read more by Lesley. This was a really good read.
