Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):

“On a stifling summer’s day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack’s in charge, she said. I won’t be long.

But she doesn’t come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever.

Three years later, mum-to-be Catherine wakes to find a knife beside her bed, and a note that says: I could have killed you.

Meanwhile Jack is still in charge – of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they’re alone in the house, and – quite suddenly – of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother.

But the truth can be a dangerous thing …

My Thoughts & Review

I’d seen lots of positive reviews for this one couldn’t wait to pick it up. I finally downloaded the audiobook from the library. It wasn’t what I was expecting.

It was quite a slow burn. I liked the writing style and the clever plot but I just felt it wasn’t thrilling enough for me. The first half of the book was confusing and it felt like I kept missing key information. However, the in the second half things did pick up a bit more and I began to enjoy it a bit more. That is until we get to the ending, which I found to be quite disappointing.

Now, although I liked the clever plot I did find that there were a bit too many coincidence and unbelievable scenes. This also showed in the characters. Yes, I felt sorry for what the children were going through but I just couldn’t connect with them.

All in all, not the best thriller I’ve read but not the worst either, just an ok-ish one.

  1. Great review! Sorry to hear that this didn’t work out for you. I’ve seen mixed reviews for it though and I think I’ve had it on my TBR for quite some time but now not sure whether to pick it up or not. It’s giving me lukewarm feels 😅
