It all happens so quickly. One day you’re living the dream, commuting to work by riverbus with your charismatic neighbour Kit in the seat beside you. The next, Kit hasn’t turned up for the boat and his wife Melia has reported him missing. When you get off at your stop, the police are waiting. Another passenger saw you and Kit arguing on the boat home the night before and the police say that you had a reason to want him dead. You protest. You and Kit are friends – ask Melia, she’ll vouch for you. And who exactly is this other passenger pointing the finger? What do they know about your lives? No, whatever danger followed you home last night, you are innocent, totally innocent. Aren’t you?
I was slightly disappointed with this. I had really high hopes as the blurb sounded great and I’ve loved Candlish’s books which I’ve read before. This had something missing for me. I wasn’t completely engrossed in it and I found it a bit of a drag at times. The beginning for me just didn’t grab me and I struggled to get into it. By the middle I was enjoying it more and was definitely more into it. There were a couple of twists which kept me engaged around the middle point which I liked. I think, however, the first twist was a bit too early and left the ending with less excitement. Now, I did enjoy the end but a lot of it was revealed in the middle. The main issues for me were the start and the early revealing of the twist. I did still enjoy the book but I was let down from my high expectations!
