Publisher's Summary

A chilling psychological thriller by the Wall Street Journal best-selling author of Silent Child.

Who really killed Maisie Earnshaw?

Within the walls of the high-security psychiatric facility Crowmont Hospital reside many violent offenders. To nurse Leah Smith, no matter what, all offenders are patients first and foremost. When Leah is appointed as nurse to Isabel Fielding, she is determined to remain professional despite the shocking crime Isabel allegedly committed in her past.

Seven years ago, six-year-old Maisie Earnshaw was found facedown in a duck pond, her body mutilated. Isabel - at age 14, found covered in Maisie's blood - was convicted of murder.

As Leah spends time with Isabel, she comes to know her as a young woman with a sweet, gentle nature, someone she could never see as a murderer. Leah begins to suspect members of the Fielding family of framing Isabel as a young girl, and she's not the only one. True crime blogger James Gorden thinks Isabel is innocent, too.

But is Leah letting her own dark past taint her judgment as she grows closer to her patient? Or has a young woman been unjustly robbed of her childhood?

Predictable

If it weren’t for the warm British accent I would’ve had a hard time finishing this story it was so predictable

Terrible—could not finish.

Just too slow moving . Not realistically believable.
A well educated woman would not think and act the way the major character does.

Very suspenseful!!

This book engrossed me from the first sentence,and held until the last.Good character development ,interesting twists and turns plot-wise.A satisfying ending. The narrator really made the book come alive.She handled the voices of each character extremely well. She has become a favorite narrator with just one book! If you enjoy British mysteries,with an unsettling story,this is the book for you!

Two Words

All I can say is I have two words that describe this book - Unbelievable & Queasy! I can't imagine where this author's mind was when she wrote this book but there were so many twists & turns I had an upset stomach when it ended - if it did end? in fact there was enough plot to write 6 books. Take your chances if you do listen to this book, because I barely made it through.

Tedious

While there is a good story hidden in the far too many words I was grateful to be done with it.

I spent the first half of the book trying to figure out if it was the writing or the narration that bothered me. The second half knowing it was both.

The writing felt disjointed and distracted. The overuse of adjectives and... well, just words in general, became so distracting that I never did manage to connect with characters at all. I felt as if it was written by someone very young who is still so in love with words they can't help but use them all. (over and over) I found the "suspenseful" bits to fall short, mostly because she took so long to complete a scene that it lost impact. I, unfortunately, found my mind screaming "blah blah blah... Get on with it" quite frequently. Sad because, as I said... There's a good story in there... It just didn't make it past those (blah blah blah, wait, come back... where'd you go... finish what you were saying...) words.

I still can't decide about the narration itself. While her voice is really quite nice and soothing once you dissect it (as I did because I was paying attention to the narration in lieu of the book... Because I was so bored with it...) There was also something quite grating about the narration... I just never did quite get my finger onto it.

In the end I was glad to be done with it and sad that I had disliked it so much. The storyline... It was THERE... Coulda/woulda/shoulda...
