Scriptwriter Renee Knight has found her niche in the thriller and this assured debut holds the reader’s attention throughout. The timing of the suspense and the denouements is judged with surgical accuracy.

This is a good psychological thriller with the ever-popular unreliable narrator, in this case two of them, along with lots of family drama. Sure to appeal to fans of Before I Go to Sleep, by S. J. Watson
