and Clara has been offered the money by a film crew
to save James. This means going back to her home
town and telling her story about how her parents were
murdered. Clara was suspected of the crime so she has
to face a lot of hostility.
This story moves along at a fast pace and makes for a good read.
The local detective Elkins has concluded that she is the killer of her parents and his job is to prove it. He is vitriolic and has no compassion for a young woman who he “knows” has killed her parents. The killing was done in a particularly brutal manner. Remarkably, some of the bones show up behind a shed on her father’s property after she returns to town. It would seem the detective should have questioned this as the place the bones were found was thoroughly searched ten years ago.
Events continue to happen to Claire through the entire book that surely would have made a good detective question why. However, this author skillfully avoided the issue and let the detective doggedly pursue his pre-ascertained verdict.
Twists and turns build suspense throughout this tale. Jo Crow masterfully exposes a surprising end plot. Who was causing all of the turmoil and danger for Claire? Meanwhile, her son is getting sicker every day and she needs to rely upon her few friends to allow her to make the documentary to earn the money she needs.
A twist at the end is a classic maneuver totally unexpected! Read this well-crafted novel and discover the duplicity at the climax. The book builds the tension and will not disappoint! C.E. Williams

This sentence used the wrong word altogether, "You operate with such tact it's unbelievable" after talking about how tough Clara has it....we kept being told about how she was running on borrowed time as her son was ill, which we already knew and didn't need constant reminding of.
I got to 21% and a director referred to her dead parents as "good old Mom and Dad" and this just didn't ring true for me, either.
So I didn't like the story at all but there were no grammatical mistakes so it gets an extra star for this alone.
to me. A really good story written in a way that had me gripped to.The very end. I felt so sad for the main character but pleased she fought her way through.
