Review by

Lily King has just served twelve years for killing her husband Leo. Now she is out and is going to find out who really killed him as she knows it wasn't herself, but it's not going to be easy.My Thought:This book is very much in the vain of Martina Cole but not as gritty. The story is good and it did keep me guessing till the end. For it's content the book was quite mild compared with Ms Coles books but not in a bad way. Yes there is the bad language and the violence but there is a good story too.Lily King is quite a likeable character and it would be nice to come across her again to see how her life would pan out further. This is a stand alone book which is a shame because although this part if her life is sorted there is room for more.A very engaging thriller that did keep me guessing and then there was a final twist. Anybody who does enjoy Martina Cole should try Jessie Keane.
