I first met Lisa at The Folkestone Book Festival before she did a question time about crime writers. It was fascinating to find out that she was actually a detective, which I think is what makes this story so good. It’s like reading the steps in an investigation so you realise how painstakingly slow all the procedures are for the police.
For two boys the events that Monday morning change the course of their lives and not for the better. Aiden ends up in prison for something he did not do and Travis loses his parents for ever, how will they both deal with this?
Secrets and lies tumble out over the pages of this novel which I might add is so very well written, I do like the short chapters and at 424 pages it is a good size book so you can really get stuck into it.
Deciding who killed Travis’s mum takes them backwards and forwards between Aiden and his mum, could one of them really commit murder? They say a mothers love is strong but would you go to prison to protect the ones you love?
Lisa has excelled in the writing of this murder mystery, in fact it goes straight in at my top book of the year even though I have only read 12 but to be honest I can’t see anything beating it, so we will see at the end of the year.
I am looking forward to reading more from Lisa Cutts, definitely an author to watch out for, she even started good as her debut novel, Never Forget, won the 2014 Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award for best thriller.
A very talented lady.
