The protagonist of this story, best selling mystery writer Sadie O'Connell suffers a number of setbacks in life starting with a crumbling marriage and including the eventual kidnapping of her only child.
Sadie's best friend bestselling romance writer Leah Winters is there by Sadie's side through the best and worst of times. As Sadie drops to her lowest mental state in life and is close to committing suicide, she finds out that her best friend Leah has kept a devastating secret from her. This secret is directly connected to the reason Sadie's son Sam completely stopped talking, for what she thought was no apparent reason.
Sadie's husband Phillip appears to be a rather successful lawyer, but has a series of affairs with other women which creates a chasm in their marriage relationship. His latest fling is with Brigitte Moreau, the newest addition to the Fleming Warner Law Offices, where Phillip practices law. When a crisis begins to develop because of some bad choices Phillip has made, his personality shows him to be an emotionally-weak and shallow- minded character.
Cheryl Tardif shows Sadie walking through life like a zombie after Sam is kidnapped and up to the point where Sadie believes he is killed. The portrayal of the protagonist at this point in the story is very palpable and commands the reader to feel compassion and empathy with this character and to identify with her suffering.
Just as Sadie decides that the events in her life are too much for her to live with, (her marriage ending, and her husband being investigated for and charged with fraud, her son kidnapped and killed) she takes matters in hand and sets out to end it all. As her plan to pull the trigger comes to fruition, Sadie starts seeing ghosts. These ghost children have something important to reveal to her, something that will give them closure and something that will tear Sadie back from the brink of hopelessness.
Readers who enjoy mystery, ghost paranormal, thrillers will enjoy reading this delectable story, but beware that there are parts in this book that make it extremely hard to put the book down and stop reading for the day.
Top international reviews
A suspensful, chilling and emotional novel with some great twists and turns, beautifully written with descriptions so good you get intensely engrossed and drawn in, almost feels like you are watching a movie. It moved along at a perfect pace and I must have changed my mind a dozen times trying to work out if there was a supernatural element involved or just Sadie's madness (I wont say and ruin it).
Highly recommended, start it when you know you are not going to be disturbed for a few hours as putting it down is difficult, and even better read when you are alone!
Up there in my favourite books of 2013.
I loved this story. It was creepy and shocking in all the right places. It seemed to capitalise on the fears of every parent. I couldn't foresee the ending. I thought I had it sussed but the twists and turns kept me guessing right until the final page.
Having never read anything by this writer before, I was totally surprised by the talent I had been missing out on. I will be looking for more of this lady's titles.
There were no mistakes I'd spotted before I gave up which in itself is impressive, though.
A "must read", in my honest opinion - a really great thriller!
It also spent a lot of the content in promoting the authors next novel, perhaps this is excusable when it was a free read, but not a paid for book.
I think most of the other reviews are a little too fulsome in their praise.
It is a shame about the ending because the actual idea / story started off quite promising but I realised after a few chapters that the story was becoming very predictable with cliches a-plenty.
A couple of major plot holes also left me thinking a little more research may have been a good idea, overall not a bad book but not a great one either.
To put it simply its a page turner and just when you think you have been very clever and worked it out another twist appears to wipe the know all look off your face!
Its creepy to the point of checking that your doors and windows are locked and yes I even found myself peeping into the cot to check that the baby was still there and that her bedroom window was closed nice and tightly.
Its easy to read the story flows nicely and to end my review if you are after a well told spooky tale that will make you look over your shoulder then give this book a go money well spent!!
