After eighteen-year-old Samuel finds himself in the middle of a drug deal gone wrong, he is forced to leave home in a hurry. Heading south, he finds refuge in a sleepy coastal town, working as a live-in assistant to the son of a wealthy family.
When the body of a young man washes up in Stockholm’s southern archipelago, investigator Manfred Olsson is called in to work the case. With his two-year-old daughter in a coma, he is reluctant to leave her bedside – but once another body is discovered, his search for the killer intensifies.
As Samuel adjusts to life under the radar, he begins to feel safe, even with a gang out for blood and the police on his trail. But it isn’t long before he realises that his sanctuary may be home to a deadly secret.
I have enjoyed Camilla’s books in the past so was looking forward to reading this one. I found it a tense and eerie thriller that made me have goose bumps throughout. The story is full of suspense and you never really know which way the story is going to lead. Samuel is going through a lot as a teenager, he is caught up in stuff that really is bad, so when he has to flee his home he manages to find a place where no one knows him and works as a live in assistant for a family. Manfred is an investigator and is investigating a murder but his mind and heart is not really in what with his little girl lying in hospital in a coma. It is kind of two stories in one and we see how they intertwine throughout the story. It was a very interesting and tense story, it was definitely a mystery as to what would happen. I enjoyed it none the less.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
