Many thanks to publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Author Jane Isaac has a new fan in me. Having read one of her previous books, I was so excited to start this one. And it didn’t disappoint.
A man was shot in front of his home. His partner and kids were left devastated. The cops were called. Beth was the Family Liason Officer. Then came a shocking reveal of another family which led to the further investigation of the man’s secrets.
Jane Isaac is a terrific author, her way of writing emotions within a police procedural got to me. The investigation was top-notch. Beth excelled in showing her passion for the police work along with her caring for the victim’s family and her own. Her instincts were bang-on. She had some awkward moments in this where she was placed in difficult circumstances. I liked that she did the right thing.
Beth and people surrounding her were shown well. I loved the way the author had characterized her. The suspense was built up from the first chapter. I was quite delighted to know how wicked the victim was. The final reveal of the killer though unexpected but didn’t really come close to the suspense and intrigue that was imbibed in the story. I was expecting something so huge that I would crash.
Overall, it was a gripping story which kept me awake till 4am. One of my fun midnight reads, the first in the new year.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

The grieving widow. The other woman. Which one is which?
When Cameron Swift is shot and killed outside his family home, DC Beth Chamberlain is appointed Family Liaison Officer. Her role is to support the family – and investigate them.
Monika, Cameron’s partner and mother of two sons, had to be prised off his lifeless body after she discovered him. She has no idea why anyone would target Cameron.
Beth can understand Monika’s confusion. To everyone in their affluent community, Monika and her family seemed just like any other. But then Beth gets a call.
Sara is on holiday with her daughters when she sees the news. She calls the police in the UK, outraged that no one has contacted her to let her know or offer support. After all, she and Cameron had been together for the last seven years.
Until Cameron died, Monika and Sara had no idea each other existed.
As the case unfolds, Beth discovers that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has secrets. Especially the dead…
