Happy Publication Day!!
Stephen Edger is one brilliant author, and I am a complete fan of his books. Though this was the second of his books for me, I have bought his other titles. I can’t resist his books, it seems.
Hannah lost her husband John a year back due to a home invasion and gruesome murder. The shock of seeing her husband dead along with a head injury caused her to lose her memory. Now she was in a different place and different job, but a memory stick found in her husband’s belongings made the whole trauma alive again. And now she wanted to get to the truth.
Having read his previous book, I knew I was in for a ride. The suspense in the book built up slowly. I loved knowing how Hannah was coping with her life and her nightmares. There was something vulnerable in her which touched my heart. I knew life would make her grow up soon. The author did just that.
The book went into the investigation and unearthing the truths. The story became fast paced as secrets were revealed. Each one took me by surprise. I loved the pulse spike I felt when the main character went digging. There were times I wanted to prod her on faster, but she moved at her own pace… The characters never understood that I needed to know the truth NOW!!
Eagerness to get to end reveal was the emotion that stayed with me right through the book. Tap.. Tap… Went my finger on the kindle. The ending too left me gasping, highly excited by the sheer talent of this author’s writing. A fun read, indeed.
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.

Grieving photographer Hannah Davenport is still recovering from a vicious home invasion that stole her husband John, and her memory. Moving to a new city, she is desperate to put the past behind her, and rebuild her life.
But sometimes the past doesn’t want to be buried.
When she keeps seeing John’s face in new places, Hannah starts to question everything about her previous life. And when tidying away his possessions, she uncovers a memory stick with a video file John left for her on the night he died. His chilling message suggests his death may not have been as straight forward as the police previously determined.
John’s brother Patrick warns her not to go digging into matters that no longer concern her, but Hannah has never been one to avoid conflict. Returning to the home she fled, Hannah comes face-to-face with people who paint a different picture of John, leaving her in no doubt that she can’t trust anything she recalls of the events before that night.
Then she finds a photograph that confirms nothing is as she remembers…
Who can you trust when nobody wants you to know the truth?
