This is a well-written and entertaining story. Set in an Australian coastal town, it tells of an investigative journalist’s mission to prove his girlfriend’s innocence and find the real murderer.I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy this book and it did take a while for me to get into the story. However, after a few chapters, the story started to draw me in properly and towards the end of the book I found that I couldn’t put it down as I wanted to know what happened. Beautifully written in the present tense ,which moves the story along and adds to the tension, it’s very descriptive. I liked the way the narrative switches from present to past in order to tell Martin’s back story, which in turn informs his current actions. Based on my enjoyment of this book, I will definitely be reading the prequel.
With thanks to LoveReading for allowing me to review this book.
