Publisher's Summary

Christopher would never hurt anyone. Not intentionally. Even after everything that’s happened, I still believe that....

Christopher Harris is a lonely boy. A boy who has never fit into his family. Who has always felt something was missing from his life. Until one day, when he discovers a suitcase in his family’s attic, and a secret about his mother that changes everything.... 

Mother will leave you reeling and hold you breathless until the very last minute. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, The Sister, and Apple Tree Yard.

"An intelligent psychological drama with a gasp-making twist." (Good Housekeeping)

"Up there with the big hitters. Move over Gone Girl you’ve got company on the top shelf." (Read & Rated Book Reviews)

"Breathlessly exciting." (Linda’s Book Bag)

"A sinister, deliciously wicked foray into the dark recesses of our personality. Lynes is a promising addition to the prolific list of stellar writers of psychological thrillers which includes Gillian Flynn, S J Watson, Louise Doughty, Elizabeth Haynes et al." (NB Magazine)

"Sent chills down my spine... completely enticing." (Damp Pebbles)

"Oozes with atmospheric tones, vivid descriptions and pure, haunting emotions." (Reviewed the Book)

"S.E. Lynes has raised the bar when it comes to phenomenal story telling." (Between Dreams I Read)

Stellar Narrating

Tamsin Kennard is an outstanding narrator. The story is slow until the last few chapters, where there is a twist I never saw coming. I'm very picky about the narrator's tone and I was not disappointed.

The Mother

This book had a predictable plot. The details throughout the end felt randomly generated. I expected more.

Mystery Lovers Will Enjoy.

If you like puzzles this book is for you. Nothing is clear cut to witch did what and who is who. The twist is discovered is the ending of this well written prose

Victim of Menace

All along I felt invested in Christopher's character. I wanted him to somehow did himself of Benjamin's threat. How inutterably
Sad how it ended. I wonder if the end twist was necessary.

Started out great but ended poorly.

Loved the beginning, however the ending was poorly! Gripping and twisted end was not it at all!

Not bad, but not great

This was a good read for long flight, but also fairly boring, ending is a bit convoluted as well.
