“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 throughout.

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.
