The story unfolds about sex, lies, murder, mystery, weird neighbours and heartache. The book is told in chapters ‘before’ and ‘after’ an event.
This book is 300+ pages and I finished it in an afternoon. You just cannot put it down – it is both shocking and horrifying but it keeps you coming back for more in a twisted way!
