By B P Walter
The new thriller from Walter starts well, setting a hook to drag you in. The middle, while important to raise tension is slow and almost lost me. The final chapters raised the tension but were a disappointing fizzle in the end.
Subtited - There are three sides to every story. The plot follows present day Julianne as she discovers something terrible on the family home computer network, that requires her to question everything about her marriage.
In a flash back scenario it follows Holly a freshman student at Oxford University, struggling to find her way with those around her from the upper echelons of society and begins to develop feelings for one in particular. He’s confident, quiet, attractive and seems to like her too. But as the year progresses, her friends’ behaviour grows steadily more disconcerting and Holly begins to realise she might just be a disposable pawn in a very sinister game.
