It was supposed to be a vacation of sorts, time to sort out her life, but Annabel walks right into the middle of a murder mystery. A killer has cut a swathe through the Suffolk coast, and although the police are doing everything they can to track him, thus far they have had no luck. Meanwhile, Annabel has met Jude and has actually started to believed that her life may begin to turn around. Annabel is wrong. In this novel, little of what the reader perceives to be the truth actually is, providing a thrilling ride of suspense and mayhem
Reading about Annabel struggling to overcome her mental illness and to face reality was intriguing. In order to avoid spoilers I’m going to say I really enjoyed reading this book. While the ending was nothing near what I was expecting the story kept me reading until the last page. Definitely worth reading
