About the Book:
Not all secrets are meant to come out…Twenty-five years ago, on Halloween night, eight-year-old Kelly Doherty went missing while out trick or treating with friends. Her body was found three days later, floating face down, on the banks of the Creggan Reservoir by two of her young classmates. It was a crime that rocked Derry to the core. Journalist Ingrid Devlin is investigating – but someone doesn’t want her to know the truth. As she digs further, Ingrid starts to realise that the Doherty family are not as they seem. But will she expose what really happened that night before it’s too late?
Having been a big fan of Claire Allan's Forget Me Not, I was really looking forward to her new book and I wasn’t disappointed. Whilst the story line is much grittier and more shocking than her previous novels, her writing style is every bit as engaging. How she describes the different areas of Northern Ireland adds to the realism and enjoyment of the book and the character development is complex and draws you in.
It is heart stopping thriller and Ms. Allan had me suspecting everyone committed the sad crime of killing a wee girl, yet it was gripping to find that the one who was responsible, was a person I never suspect. Brilliant , clever , emotional book, not to be missed. The story develops to a climax that I genuinely couldn’t put down. Very well done Claire Allan, can't wait for your next book.
