Publisher Description

I see my son’s scooter lying in the undergrowth. Time stands still. Where is he? Deafened by my own heartbeat, I keep looking but I can’t see him. This is all my fault. My punishment for the things I did, and the things I should have done. 


All I ever wanted was to keep my son safe. I married the perfect husband, built the perfect home. I’ve tried to give Finn the life I never had.


Everything was going so well. Until now. 


It’s just small things at first – a punctured tyre, an open gate that I'm sure I locked. But then I see the photograph of two young girls, and a night I’ve tried to forget.


I know I have to stop pretending that nothing is happening. I can’t escape the truth.


Someone knows my secret. But what do they want from me?


A gripping and suspenseful thriller with a jaw-dropping twist, fans of Friend Request, The Wife Between Us and The Girl on the Train won’t be able to put this down.

Great book

Nicci has a good life after a hard childhood. She is married and has a wonderful son. However her past won't let her go.
Nick was brought up in foster care and now volunteers to help kids that are leaving foster care. The story hints at the very beginning that her marriage is not as good as it seems. As we learn more about Nick and her painful past, we learn she is a fighter. She'll do whatever she has to in order to protect her son. I could not believe how many twists there was! It kept me guessing and I loved it!

My Review:

Fantastic, awesome, and great are just some of the words that I would use to describe this book. This author had me hooked with the very first word. I absolutely loved it and can’t wait to read more by her. This was my very first book by this author and what a wonderful job she did writing this book.

I want to start off by saying that I loved, loved, loved this book so much. I will shout this to to the moon and back. I can’t believe I waited this long to read this authors books. I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future. From start to finish I was so captivated by the story. I couldn’t wait for more as I turned each page. As the book progressed each chapter left you off craving more and more. It was like an addiction I couldn’t break and I loved every minute of it. I have to say though my favorite part of the book was the ending. It had so many twists and turns that I thought my head was going to explode. It was a total mind bender. This story will definitely stay with you for a long time. Kudos to Sam Hepburn.

Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
