What the publisher says:
When flames rip through their family home, only teenager Stephanie and her younger brother escape unhurt. Brett always liked to play with fire, but now their dad is dead and someone has to pay the price.
Psychologist Connie Summers wants to help Stephanie rebuild her life. She has a new name, a young son and everything to live for. But when Stephanie receives a letter from someone she’d hoped would never find her, Connie is forced to question what really happened that night. But some truths are better left alone . . .
What I say:
We meet our main character Connie as she bumps into someone she knew in her former life working in prison. The problem is, he was an inmate not a colleague. Things get even worse when another former inmate turns up dead with her name written on his hand.
At the same time Connie is trying to help her new client Stephanie who has been relocated under the witness protection scheme. Stephanie is adamant that someone knows her new identity and has tracked her down. Is there a link between these facts?
Enter DI Lindsay Wade who is investigating the murder and who quickly becomes a friend and support to Connie. We met Lindsay in the previous novel by Sam Carrington, Saving Sophie, and it really was a pleasure to catch up with her again. The relationship between the two women is a strong one which I hope to see continue in further novels.
As the story continues there are unexpected twists and turns and the author cleverly leads us down one path only for it to lead in a different direction. I highly recommend this one
