That night everything changed.
The night Frannie commited a murder, but she didn’t mean to…
That night we helped her bury the body, what else could we do?
One hot summers night in Italy, Joe and Cathy Plant receive a phone call that will change their lives forever.
Their sister Frannie has killed a man, and she needs their help.
They were always close, some might say too close, siblings who worked together, lived next door to each other
And now they’ve buried a body together…
But when they return to England, Frannie, Joe and Cathy become tangled in lies in they’ve been telling,
to the police, to their friends, to each other…
But if you can’t trust your family, who can you trust?
I think this is the first Gillian McAllister book I've read - it most defnitely will not be the last!! I found this to be one of those books that keeps you on the edge of your seat as you read, and she has created a set of characters and circumstances that just get you thinking 'what would I do in that situation?!'.
This is a book about siblings and just how far you'd go to help your family out!! Frannie, Cathy and Joe are siblings and have always been close. And that bond is pushed to the limit when on holiday Frannie calls them frantically to ask for help as she's just murdered a man - but she didn't mean to!!
Through each of their viewpoints we are witness to the action before, during and after as we see the toll the events of that night take on them personally and how they deal with the consequences. And just how easy it seems to be to tell lie after lie to protect someone they love!
I loved the twists throughout! The setting just adds to the story as what is supposed to be an idyllic escape from reality, turns into a real life nightmare that continues to plague them as the net closes as they return home. You don't always like the characters and how they deal with the situation, but you can't help but be gripped by the plot and piecing the story together to work out just where the heck it's going!! And I wasn't disappointed as it made me gasp quite a few times!!
