Nina is contacted by a solicitor in Bedford looking for the recipient of an inheritance from a man who claimed to be her father, but it’s been two weeks since she lost her mother, who also told her that her father had died when she was young. When the likelihood of this being a clerical mistake seems slim, Nina goes to Bedford from her home in Arran, to find a large mysterious but familiar house and a branch of family she never knew she had. However, the dark secrets of this family threaten her with blackmail and the safety of her young daughter Naomi.
A taut and tense psychological thriller that deals with the terrifying and difficult theme of paedophile rings. Even though I did find the plot somewhat predictable the story was well told from Nina’s point of view in the present and alternated with her mother Claire’s point of view from when Nina was young. There are suspenseful, tense chapters which will have you on the edge of your seat and a conclusion I didn’t quite see coming.
A dark and tense thriller for those who like their thrillers taut and tense. This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
