You know your son better than anyone. Don’t you?
When critically ill Jacob Wilson is given a life-saving heart transplant, his parents are relieved that their loving son has been saved.
However, before long, his family are forced to accept that something has changed in Jacob. Their once loving son is slowly being replaced by a violent man whose mood swings leave them terrified – but is it their fault?
Jacob’s girlfriend, Rosie, is convinced the man she loves is suffering from stress. But when his moods turn on her, she begins to doubt herself – and she can only hide the bruises for so long.
When a terrible crime is committed, Jacob’s family are forced to confront their darkest fears. Has the boy they raised become a monster? Or is someone else to blame?
What a powerful novel. I have read all of most of Cathy Glass’s books and here she is writing under a new name Lisa Stone. I love the fact she has branched into crime thriller and I think she has done it really well. I was hooked and couldn’t put the book down. It was really interesting reading about cellular memory and how people can experience different personality changes after a transplant. I hope to read more crime thrillers from the author in the future.

Seven years ago, two boys went missing at sea – and only one was brought to shore. The Sandbank, a remote stretch of coast dotted with beach huts, was scarred forever.
Sarah’s son survived, but on the anniversary of the accident, he disappears without trace. As new secrets begin to surface, The Sandbank hums with tension and unanswered questions. Sarah’s search grows more desperate and she starts to mistrust everyone she knows – and she’s right to.
Someone saw everything on that fateful day seven years ago. And they’ll do anything to keep the truth buried.
I have loved Lucy’s previous novels and couldn’t wait to get started on this one. I love the fact that Lucy’s books are always based around the beach or the sea. I know she writes from a beach hut and when I am reading one of her books I can imagine her writing in her beach hut. It is a lovely feeling. This story gripped me from the first chapter, there are lots of twists and turns and I felt like I stopped breathing a few times as I didn’t see what was going to happen. Superbly written.
Thank you Harper Collins for sending me an advanced copy for an honest review.
