Publisher's Summary

When Sasha disappears, Ellen fears the worst. When long-buried secrets resurface, Ellen realizes she may not know Sasha - or what she's capable of - at all.

2005: 17-year-old Ellen falls under the spell of glamorous newcomer Sasha. As Ellen is welcomed into Sasha's family, she doesn't see the darkness that lies beneath their musical, bohemian lifestyle. At a New Year's Eve party, events come to a dramatic head, resulting in a court case (in which Ellen is a key witness) that means family life at the Corner House will never be the same again.

2018: Now 30, Ellen and Sasha are still entwined in each other's lives and sharing a flat in London. When Sasha disappears, Ellen fears the worst. She has gone missing like this before, and the police won't take it seriously, but long-buried events in their shared past mean Ellen has good reason to be frightened - not only for Sasha, but also for herself. Finding out the truth about what really happened on New Year's Eve 12 years ago puts Ellen in terrible danger and forces her to confront not only the past, but how well she really knows her best friend.

What the critics say

"Poignant.... Satisfying.... Marshall knows her way around the complicated, sometimes-fraught nature of female friendship. The Monktons are like something out of a V.C. Andrews drama.... Suspenseful fare that will resonate in the #MeToo era." (Kirkus)

Slow and predictable

Slow and predictable. Nothing surprising or different about the story. The way the character’s interactions/conversations cut-off was incredibly annoying.

I’d be lying if I said it was good...

This story never really takes off, but rather lingers. Characters are not at all interesting, lack development. The “twist” is predictable. So many better stories in this genre. Skip this one.
