It’s their daughter’s graduation and Rachel and Ed Hartley are expecting it to be one of their family’s happiest days. But when she stumbles and falls on stage during the ceremony, a beautiful moment turns to chaos: Gemma has been shot, and just like that, she’s fighting for her life.
PI Matthew Hill is one of the first on the scene. A cryptic message Gemma received earlier in the day suggests someone close to her was about to be exposed. But who? As Matthew starts to investigate, he finds more and more layers obscuring the truth. He even begins to suspect the Hartleys are hiding something big—from him and from each other.
While Gemma lies in hospital in a coma, her would-be killer is still out there. Can Matthew unravel the family’s secrets before the attacker strikes again?
I found this a great thriller which is action packed right from the beginning of the story. At a graduation Rachel and Ed’s daughter Gemma is up on stage when she is shot, the story is all about the police and how they are trying to find the suspect who did this. I like how the author has written each chapter as a different character so we can see all the different views, it makes it more interesting, but also I like how it is not each person’s name, it will say the private investigator for example. It made it easier for me which I liked. I liked how deep we got with each of the characters and how many twists there were through out the story. The other part to the story was the mother and daughter bond and the love that they have for each other reminded me how close me and my mum are. It was lovely to see. I would certainly recommend this book for anyone looking out for a really good thriller.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
