When twenty-nine-year-old Cynthia Galbraith struggles to come to terms with her traumatic past and the realities of prison life, a prison counsellor persuades her to write a diary exploring the events that led to a life sentence for murder.
Although unconvinced at first, Cynthia finally decides she has all the time in the world and very little, if anything, to lose. As she begins writing she holds back nothing: sharing the thoughts she hadn’t dare vocalise, the things that keep her awake at night and haunt her waking hours.
Will the truth finally be revealed?
This is the third book that I have read by this author and he is fast becoming one of my favourites – I love his writing style and his books are darker psychological thrillers that draw you in and this one was no different.
Again the subject of this book, which is the follow up to the very disturbing White is the Coldest Colour is very dark and the story covers a wide range of subjects that a lot of authors would shy away from but they are dealt with very well and they are needed to give the book such a dramatic quality and ending.
Cynthia is a fascinating character and I am so glad that she got to have her own book to tell her story! You really do need to read this first book before you pick up this one – it contains spoilers and flows straight on but I can assure you that the first book is definitely worth it!
Another five star review from me for this one – it really is a very, very good read that is very dark and disturbing – and I loved it!
