"A vicious assault. A devastating accusation. Who should she trust, her husband or her best friend? It was supposed to be the perfect reunion: six university friends together again after twenty years. Host Ali finally has the life she always wanted, a career she can be proud of and a wonderful family with her college boyfriend, now husband. But that night her best friend makes an accusation so shocking that nothing will ever be the same again. When Karen staggers in from the garden, bleeding and traumatised, she claims that she has been assaulted - by Ali's husband, Mike. Ali must make a split-second decision: who should she believe? Her horrified husband, or her best friend? With Mike offering a very different version of events, Ali knows one of them is lying - but which? And why? When the ensuing chaos forces her to re-examine the golden era the group shared at university, Ali realises there are darker memories too. Memories that have lain dormant for decades. Memories someone would kill to protect"--Publisher description.… (mer)

BORING
  namfos | Sep 22, 2023 |
Billed as a psychological thriller. It missed the mark by just a tad, but still it wasn't a bad read. This book reminded me of the 1970-80's film, "The Big. Chill." It was the story of 7 college friends that had a 25th year reunion at one of their homes. All kinds of secrets and lies come to light. 282 pages ( )

The novel is a well written and complex study of a sexual assault crime. The author does a good job of rejecting stereotypes and myths. For me the characters were flat, which I why I rated it lower, however an impressive attempt to address a terrible crime. ( )

The book was okay, it kept me turning the pages to try to find out what happened, but I dislike this type of narrative, that has everyone flawed. I think I read a couple of British thrillers where the characters were mostly flaky, even the successful ones.

The motivation of some is very thin, and in the end it is so less cleverly done than Murder on the Orient Express or whatever that book was where everyone is guilty. I do not mean this literally, because this book clearly has one guilty party, but by the end of reading the story you will find that everyone is flawed and following their selfish motivation.

But it was a couple of hours of entertainment. ( )

This phycological thriller is loaded with rancid relationships between people who are supposed to be friends, once again reinforcing the fact you never really know anyone, no matter how close you are. It also deals with the subject of rape and a woman's right to say no. All sides are presented without fluff. The characters are appallingly despicable in a lot of ways, yet still human. I can't decide who's worse, Ali, Kar, or Jodi. And then there are the guys, Mike and Callum, who are both drunks and worse—Bill is the exception, the one shining star. The story starts with a gathering of old college friends, then proceeds down the rabbit hole into an abyss of relationships gone horribly wrong. There are many plot twists, some obvious and other complete surprises, but the book is not dull and held my attention until the end. ( )

We always think we want to know secrets, but what we forget is that they come with their own weights, heavy as millstones, and if you aren't careful, this weight can crush you.
My voice was trapped in my throat, fluttering like the birds that sometimes got into our chimney.
Even when you think you’ve lost it all, there is still more that can be taken from you.
You aren’t allowed to say it but your wedding is perilously close to a licence to let out the selfish little diva
inside all of us. It says to girls – you won’t matter any more, not after this, so for today you get to matter the
most.
