The Delaney family love one another dearly – it’s just that sometimes they want to murder each other . . .
Joy Delaney and husband Stan have done well. Four wonderful grown-up children. A family business to envy. The golden years of retirement ahead of them.
So when Joy Delaney vanishes – no note, no calls, her bike missing – it’s natural that tongues will wag.
How did Stan scratch his face? And who was the stranger who entered and suddenly left their lives? What are they all hiding?
But for the Delaney children there is a much more terrifying question: did they ever know their parents at all?
My reading experience:
Compelling. One of those books that keeps you on your toes, the true meaning of a page-turner.
The author builds her characters with love and pride, adorning them with characteristics that bring meaning to the things that happen to them. Family life, sibling rivalry and dynamics, depleted ambition, disappointing love;this is real life. None of these characters were wholly likeable and that was wonderful.
I would highly recommend this captivating story as Moriarty never disappoints.
