Neve Connolly looks down at a murdered man. She doesn't call the police. ‘You know, it’s funny,’ Detective Inspector Hitching said. ‘Whoever I see, they keep saying, talk to Neve Connolly, she’ll know. She’s the one people talk to, she’s the one people confide in.’ A trusted colleague and friend. A mother. A wife. Neve Connolly is all these things.
She has also made mistakes; some small, some unconsciously done, some large, some deliberate. She is only human, after all. But now one mistake is spiralling out of control and Neve is bringing those around her into immense danger. She can’t tell the truth. So how far is she prepared to go to protect those she loves.
And who does she really know? And who can she trust? A liar. A cheat. A threat. Neve Connolly is all these things. Could she be a murderer?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
By now, we know Nicci French books to be a few things: completely suspenseful, impossible to second guess and written with a surgeon’s precision. This standalone story is all of this—with an extra dollop of delicious intrigue. In it we meet Neve Connolly, a wife and mother people seem to trust and adore. It soon becomes clear that all isn’t as it seems when she discovers the dead body of a man she knows, but decides not to inform the police. Supreme pleasure is taken in unspooling the real Neve secret by secret until we hurtle breathlessly towards a climax we’re delighted to say we completely and utterly failed to see coming.
