About the book
If only someone had listened.
When the supposed suicide of famous Scottish football coach Harry Nugent hits the headlines, the tabloids are filled with tributes to a charitable pillar of the community that gave so much back to sport and to those less fortunate.
But something isn’t right. Normally celebrities are queuing up to claim to have had a very special relationship with the deceased, but investigative journalist Oonagh O’Neil is getting the distinct impression that people are trying to distance themselves from Harry.
Oonagh’s investigation leads her to uncover a heartbreakingly haunting cover-up that chills her to the core … and places her in mortal danger from those willing to protect their sadistic and dark secrets at every cost.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend that you read this book. The premise of the novel had me hooked before I’d even read a page of the actual book.
It’s not an easy read and in fact, I’d go as far as to say some people will find it a tough read. The subject matter is written with a great amount of sensitivity and there’s nothing gratuitous about it. If you can get past the sensitivity of the issues featured, you’re in for a super read.
This is the third book in the Oonagh O’Neil series from Theresa Talbot. It’s a thriller that is so full of atmosphere and the very darkest of secrets that you won’t want to put it down for a minute.
Although there are references here and there to the two previous books, I would point out that this book reads perfectly as a standalone. Although, it may cause you to want to go purchase the other books too – you have been warned!
The character development is really excellent and if you add to that the incredibly fast pace the plot takes, you’re onto a winner with this book.
Thanks so much to Aria Fiction and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
