Thirty years ago, Vincent King became a killer.
Now, he’s been released from prison and is back in his hometown of Cape Haven, California. Not everyone is pleased to see him. Like Star Radley, his ex-girlfriend, and sister of the girl he killed.
Duchess Radley, Star’s thirteen-year-old daughter, is part-carer, part-protector to her younger brother, Robin – and to her deeply troubled mother. But in trying to protect Star, Duchess inadvertently sets off a chain of events that will have tragic consequences not only for her family, but also the whole town.
Murder, revenge, retribution.
How far can we run from the past, when the past seems doomed to repeat itself?
So many people had said how good this book was so had to get in on the hype, I am very late to this party but I don’t really see what all the fuss is about. For me the names of people got to me, and I couldn’t see past that. It is a slow burner, not a lot of stuff happens for a bit in the first half of the story. The chapters are short and sweet and the second part was better than the first but still it was not my favourite read.
