A slow burn mystery suspense which traversed 20 years of the main character Julia’s life and came to a banging finish.

An affair at work broke down Julia’s family. A message with a link led to a body buried twenty years ago when 5 tenants lived in a house owned by an eccentric landlady. And only 4 set forth in the world. One was buried. And a trial was set for that murder which she had to undergo today. The biggest question was – a murderer or a framed victim – what was she?

My second book by this author, though a slow start with multiple confusing timelines, the story picked up midway and ran with the suspense. A courtroom drama pulled my interest in. I didn’t like any of the characters, but I have to say they were highly complexed with layers to them. They appeared close-mouthed, but the chapters soon peeled off the layers.

The writing style was initially a bit difficult for me, I soon got into the rhythm of it when the pace picked up. I loved the twists hidden in the story, they got my pulse racing. For me, it was the court case and the arguments which closed the suspense in. I found myself reading it all in one go just to get to The Verdict. And boy, was it flammable with hidden secrets.

Overall, a fun read on a Sunday morning.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

A cheating wife. An estranged mother. But is she guilty of murder?
Please raise your right hand.
An affair at work has cost Julia Winter her job and her marriage. There’s no denying she has let her family down.

Please remain standing.
When a body is discovered on the North Downs, it hits local headlines. But for Julia, the news is doubly shocking because the body was buried just opposite the house she lived in over twenty years ago. And it is one of her former housemates.

Please resume your seat.
Up on the stand, Julia’s not the only person to have secrets that are unearthed during the trial. But the evidence against her is overwhelming.

And yet one question remains: is she the murderer, or the victim?

Jurors, you may be excused.
