Pub Date: 23

Genres: Psychological, Thriller
“When there's nothing
left to lose...
would you risk
everything to find out the truth?”
Verity Casmere is
faced with a shocking diagnosis, which makes her contemplate how she wants to
spend her remaining time. Her missing sister Ashlee's fate is the one question
that keeps troubling her, as the police suspect her of being murdered.
Verity is determined
to find out the truth, and to that end, she enlists the help of a forensic
psychiatrist named Oscar de la Nuit. But as Oscar delves deeper into the
mystery, he realizes that he has bitten off more than he can chew, endangering
himself and those close to him.
Will they be able to
uncover the truth before it destroys them both?
I discovered that this book was part of a series when I was
halfway through it, but I decided to continue reading it despite not starting
with the first book. I found it to be an effortless and seamless experience,
with no difficulty understanding the story, and I'm content with my decision.
The book is undoubtedly exciting and moves at a fast pace,
making it difficult for me to put down as it kept me on the edge of my seat
Each chapter is enjoyable because it alternates between
Verity and Oscar's perspectives. Verity, who lost her sister and was terminally
ill, was not an easy character to connect with, as her foolish actions and
risky decisions were not to my liking, despite feeling sorry for her. However, Oscar
was a character I liked, as he was a fantastic person. The characters in the
book are well-crafted and realistic.
The book's original and unique concept piqued my interest,
providing a refreshing change from other books I've read. I love this book and
appreciate that the author has extensive knowledge of mental health. I'm
looking forward to reading more books with similar themes in the future.
Disclosure: I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley in
exchange for an honest review.
