The latest installment in the thrilling Natalie King series

Natalie King has been hired to do a psychiatric evaluation for the children’s court. A custody dispute. Not her usual territory. A distraught mother Jenna needs help maintaining custody of her children, claiming her former partner Malik has been abusing one of the children. He claims she’s crazy and compulsive.

But what if all the claims are true, or none? And how does she work out where her concerns for the child slide into her growing obsession with her own lost father? With all the public interest, social media trolling and intense media speculation, Natalie finds herself struggling to view the case impartially.

More urgently: with both parents saying they’re desperate to keep their daughter safe—what if one of them is desperate enough to kill?

I was intrigued by this book because of the title and the front cover. I didn't even realise it was part of a series but I was still able to read and enjoy it regardless. I think one of the main reasons I liked this book so much is because I liked the main character and was interested in the parts about her personal life as well as the interesting case she was working on. The first 80% of the book was a little slow but still interested me and I really had no idea who the abuser could be. The last 20% was brilliant and much more faced paced. After reading I am keen to read others in the series. Thanks for Netgalley for allowing me to read a free ecopy.

This was the third book in a series. I did not read the first two. However, the author did a good job of making this an interesting read without the need for reading the previous books. The book keeps the readers attention with a mix of mystery and suspense.

Interesting read, sub plots were well woven into the plot - it could have easily felt there was too much going on but the theme of parenthood and protection tied them all together. Confidentially written.

This is book three in the Natalie King series,and I haven't read the other two. That goes part of the way to me not being over enthusiastic about this one. There was a lot to catch up on... family,medical and love life all included. The main story line of Chelsea and her parents and was she or was she not being abused,and if so,by who.... that was interesting. You start to mistrust everyone,as essentially everyone was lying to get their own way. I'm afraid I found the whole Twitter thing distracting.
