I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book
A great introduction, which reeled me in straight away.
Then the story, this took a slightly different route than I was expecting, which was no bad thing. Unravelling the link between Rosie and Alfie is a great conundrum all the way through the book.
We get to follow them on their road trip, but are the account of events that we are told, the whole truth?
This book is a great suspense novel, which will make you question your own belief of events.
Quite a great road trip of a book, with an element of Thelma and Louise, reading about the travels around Australia and some of the tourist places, came across extremely well.
A deceptive tale of friendship, belief, in yourself and those around you. It is also one of those books that when you have finished it, you realise wow, what you have read. I haven't stopped thinking about the characters since finishing it late yesterday
I would read more from this author.
4.5 star review
I'm off to scout out more books by Ms. Hammersley.

I found myself becoming quite attached to Rosemary, which in a psychological thriller of this type - told in the first person by a woman who is tormented and disturbed - is quite a rare occurrence. Normally I find myself wishing the woman would either grow up or wise up, but Rosemary came across as a stronger person than those that normally appear in this type of story. I found her to be likeable, and I was with her all the way, wishing she would eventually get to the bottom of why she had the troubles she did and who the mysterious Alfie really was.
If I had to point to one aspect that slightly spoilt it for me, it was that at the end I didn’t feel as if we really got to the bottom of Rosemary’s mental problems, going back to when they started with Simon. Even the sessions with the psychiatrist in Australia didn’t seem to have resolved anything in this regard - given that this particular line is somewhat pivotal to the whole plot, I would have liked a more satisfying resolution.
However, that said, this is the first book I have read by this author and I shall seek out some of her others, as when I feel the need to read something that keeps me guessing and turning the pages, but don’t want something too long or complicated, this sort of story is just right for me.
I would highly recommend this book and really enjoyed it.
