I loved this author’s first book, Before I Go to Sleep. It was suspenseful and the pages just kept turning. I was excited to receive an e galley of this title even though I did not read it right away.
This novel is set in a seaside town that has fallen on hard times. Nonetheless, documentary film maker, Alex, has chosen to shoot a film here. Why this location? What will she discover in Blackwood Bay? Does she have a former connection with this place? Pick this one up to find out.
In my opinion, this book was okay. It was not as good as Before I Go to Sleep though.
Many thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins Publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
From the Publisher
“A tight, brisk plot drives this sharp character study. Watson perfectly captures small-town ennui while illustrating how corruption can hide in plain sight.”– “Publishers Weekly (starred review)”
“Watson gradually turns up the heat while carefully teasing out wicked secrets that the town would rather keep buried, and Alex, who has her own secrets, makes an appealing, if possibly unreliable, narrator. The darkness runs deep in this skillfully plotted chiller.”– “Kirkus Reviews”–This text refers to the audioCD edition.
