Then she meets Jamie, a young man from a very different background, who has evidence that her father met a much darker end.
Together they embark upon a search
This is, like The Wave at Hanging Rock, a psychological thriller and if you don't enjoy the genre you won't get the story here.
I found it fascinating because a sociopath hides him or herself very well. There are sociopaths among us, most of them are highly functional and ...more
I wouldn’t necessarily say that it was a psychological thriller but a good thriller all the same. I was kept guessing how the prologue fitted in with the rest of the story but after a while, I got it. Fairly slow start but do persevere with it because around half way through, it seriously kicks off and then keeps going to the end, with an unexpected turn of events near the finish.

Those who suffered the Wiggles may recall that rhyme......those who read Gregg Dunnett understand it........also, apt so...
Again, misled and constant reshuffling of the suspect list. Thank Gawd for days off, only reason I put it down last night was because I knew I'd be able to finish today.
Another good'un, thanks again for the journey.
This is another excellent read that will keep you riveted from start to end.
The twist, when it came, caught me so unawares I had to read the page again to make sure I hadn't misinterpreted the words.
If you like a book with a twist, you will enjoy this.
One if my least favorites of Gregg Dunnett's. From the very beginning, I knew he was a con. His imagination and reasonings were ridiculous and unbelievable. I did not care much for the book but that's just my opinion. I'm still a fan of the Author.
I’m not sure exactly why I loved this story from the beginning. Perhaps it was Jaime’s infatuation with Alice. Or Alice’s carefree vulnerability. Or the mysterious dead Charlie. But whatever drew me in, the unexpected twist had me up way too late! A great read. Looking forward to more from this author.
I found this book a little bit slow in places, but Mr Dunnett does make his characters rich and interesting. I did not enjoy this book as much as a couple others from Gregg Dunnett such a Wave at Hanging Rock, but a fairly decent read. I felt this one just lacked suspense in places.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. The best mystery that I have read in a long time. Usually I know who did it by half way thru the book, This time I was not sure until the last page. The characters were all so believable. Looking forward to reading more books by this author
