Sometimes the past is best left buried
Since the birth of baby Joe five weeks ago, Ali Baker has been struggling to cope. Starved of sleep and haunted by painful memories from the past, she's a million miles away from the polished, professional barrister she has worked so hard to become.
Then her mother tragically and unexpectedly dies, leaving Ali an orphan. Haunted by her loss, Ali can't forget her mother's last words to her: There is something I really need to tell you...
Heading back to the Norfolk Broads to sort her mother's things, Ali is plunged into memories of her family's picture-perfect summers on the river.
But as she starts to uncover secrets hidden within the isolated house, Ali is drawn into a dark web that threatens to destroy everything she believed about her childhood – and her very sanity.
Ali may finally discover her mother's secrets... but at what cost?
A gripping, captivating psychological thriller, perfect for fans of Samantha Hayes and S.E. Lynes.

Loved this book
I have so enjoyed listening to this book. If I had had the time I would have listened in one sitting it fairly jogged along never missed a beat. The narrator was excellent she set the perfect pitch. You won’t be disappointed!
