A powerful, thought-provoking story. . . a vital read for any crime fan' Kate Rhodes on Life Ruins
When everyone hides the truth, who do you turn to?
Becca’s had a hard time of it, but she has finally got her life together. She has a nice little flat, a steady job pulling pints, and she’s even seeing someone new: Andy, who keeps his private life to himself but is always good for a laugh. And then Andy vanishes. When his body turns up on isolated Sunk Island, Becca learns Andy wasn’t just another punter. He was a police officer, deep undercover, investigating a drugs ring that he believed operated out of Becca’s pub.
Staggered by the betrayal, Becca turns to the only person she thinks she can trust: her foster mum, Kay. But Kay has problems of her own. She’s just moved into a short-term let in the hopes of finding some peace and quiet. But peace and quiet are hard to come by on Sunk Island . . .
Before long, both women are drawn into a terrifying world of drugs, money and death.
The gripping new novel from Dagger-Award-winning author Danuta Kot, perfect for fans of Ann Cleeves, Tana French and Denise Mina - a story about the people we are... and the people we aren't.
This was a book I was really looking forward to. A new author for me which is always something to get excited about.
Becca is finally thinking things are looking up for her. She has her own flat, a job and someone new on the scene who she met whilst pulling pints in the pub where she works.
Andy is an undercover cop. Becca falls for him as he seems to be a good laugh, something she really needs.
Slowly Andy is trying to get information out of her regarding the pub she works in and what may be going on behind the scenes. Something dodgy is lurking but can Becca figure out what. This really does produce tension within the pages and really does get your mind going.
I think when there are characters you like and characters that you hate, then the author has done good to get your emotions going. There are characters you root for and want to do good and characters you really don't like. well there was for me.
I really got stuck into this story and at times I found it a little unbelievable but very interesting.
As the book is told from different points of view I found it something I really had to concentrate on or I would forget who was telling the story.
This is an interesting book and I would recommend it for anyone who wants a read that's just slightly different. It is an interesting and gripping read but I can't say at any point it had my heart racing in fear or wonder. It does however get your mind going.
