As recommended by MY FAVOURITE MURDER: 'It is so really ****ing good!'
'This book had me hooked from the first page to the last.’ Lisa Jewell

You're in love with a man on Death Row in Florida, convicted of a brutal murder twenty years ago.

You're convinced he didn’t do it, and you're determined to prove it. You're part of a mass online campaign that picks holes in the case, uncovers evidence of police incompetence, and agitates for this miscarriage of justice to be overturned.

Now you're married to him, and he’s a free man, his conviction thrown out. You have the rest of your lives to spend together.

You’re overjoyed. After all, he’s innocent.

Isn’t he?

    But the ending annoyed me
  • Disappointed

    I really got my teeth into this book whilst on holiday and I couldn’t believe what I’d been waiting for (the crescendo) was finally happening in the last 30 pages! I read with anticipation but it felt really rushed in the end. The ending was kind of obvious and I would have preferred a more intricately constructed story. Readable- but could have been better!

    A great read!
  • The ending let it down

    I really enjoyed this, but the last few chapters didn’t finish the book in a satisfying manner. Nothing is explained, and I just felt confused. The protagonist is really well written and the authors dares to write her unlikeable! I did enjoy it, it just fell flat at the end for me.
