DescriptionOne summer morning, three little girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, two will be charged with murder. Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside town when her investigation leads her to interview funfair cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it's the first time they've seen each other since that dark day when they were just children. But with new lives - and families - to protect, will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden?

I had to keep reading until I finished this story. Amber and Kirsty are convicted murderers who are trying hard to hide their history and previous identity. The story of the death of the four year old Chloe in the past has been alternated with that of the present, the murders of several women in Whitmouth. Amber and Kirsty meet each other by coincidence. They are not supposed to see each other ever again, but when they do they want to know more about one another.
It's hard not to sympathize with these two women. Which is strange as they've murdered a child. I kept wanting them to be innocent somehow. Amber and Kirsty as wicked as they are said to be or are they two victims who were at the wrong place at the wrong time? Are they kind people who made a mistake or are they cool blooded murderers? I found this very interesting. The psychological game the writer plays with the reader is the strongest characteristic of this book. It's something different and I liked that a lot. by Librarian Lavender
