Description

‘Immensely talented new author.’ John Marrs, author of The One and When You Disappeared

‘Engrossing, compelling and twisty from the first page to the shocking ending. This book grabbed me and didn't let go.’ Michele Campbell author of It’s Always the Husband

'Unique and utterly compelling. This twisty psychological thriller will chill you to the bones.' Gemma Metcalfe author of Trust Me

‘A stellar and original concept, brilliantly executed. The final chapters had my heart in my throat! O’Sullivan is certainly one to watch.’ Phoebe Morgan, author of THE DOLL HOUSE

A deserted train station: A man waits. A woman watches.

Chris is ready to join his wife. He’s planned this moment for nearly a year. The date. The time. The train. But he hadn’t factored in Sarah.

So when Sarah walks on to the platform and sees a man swaying at the edge she assumes he’s just had too much to drink. What she doesn’t expect is to stop a suicide.

As Sarah becomes obsessed with discovering the secrets that Chris is clearly hiding, he becomes obsessed with stopping her, protecting her.

But there are some secrets that are meant to stay buried…

Perfect for fans of Clare Mackintosh, BA Paris and Holly Seddon.

    I'm afraid the twist is so obvious from the beginning and the writing is tedious. Sorry to say it's not worth the time to read it
  • Gripping thriller

    At first I thought this would be a romantic cliche but it gathers momentum, the characters develop further into the story and it's gripping and although I started to predict the ending, I wanted to find out how the author would deliver and he didn't let me down.

    Gripping from start to finish! The way this book deals with issues of mental health is something so relevant and is dealt with beautifully. The writing style has such a rawness about it and you feel the emotions so much more because of it! Definitely worth a read!!!
  • Good read but depressing

    A good page turner, well written and intriguing. Would recommend not reading if you have any triggers with depression/anxiety. Keeps you engaged but always left me feeling rather depressed afterwards. Would still recommend if you like that sort of thing
  • Fantastic read

    Seems as though a few predicted the ending although I was still marvellously surprised. Brilliant read and an absolute bargain :)!

    I had guessed the "big twist" within the first 80 pages. Forced myself to keep on but not an enjoyable read.
  • Proper page turner
