The Widow. The Secret. The Lie.
The Disappeared…
On a routine flight from Africa to England, Dr Mason Palmer is tragically killed when the light aircraft he’s travelling on crashes and disappears in dense bushland.
The Widow…
Ten months later, Nicole Palmer is still trying to block out the grief of her husband’s sudden death. Until one morning she receives a photo of Mason through the post, along with a cryptic message. A message only he could’ve written.
The Secret…
But when Nicole tries to find out if Mason is really alive and what actually happened to him in Africa, everyone she turns to for answers ends up dead.
Determined to find the truth, Nicole uncovers a conspiracy that spans the globe and discovers there are powerful people who are prepared to kill to keep her silent.
Who’s lying? Who’s watching Nicole? And can she expose their murky secrets before they catch up with her?

My Thoughts:

I'd just finished one Sibel Hodge book and wasn’t quite ready to be done with her brilliant writing and research. So, I immediately picked this one up and got stuck straight in!
At first, it seemed really similar to one I’d read by John Mars ‘When You Disappeared’, however, the further into the book I got, the more I realised it couldn’t be any more different!
This was so sinister; it had me gripping onto the edge of my seat and gasping out loud. I am a complete chocoholic, and I seriously need to research the companies I buy my chocolate from now. I’d love to say I could give it up, but I think I’m more in the ‘its an addiction’ phase to be able to do that!
The direction this book went in was utterly shocking, and I didn’t second guess anything, so I just sat back and enjoyed it. I did find Nicole to be a little annoying and impulsive. I know she wanted answers, but she didn’t stop and think about the consequences for either herself or others. So, I can’t say she was that likeable a character.
You could really tell, once again, that the author had thoroughly done her research into the topic covered. It was all very in-depth, and even though completely fiction, it was authentic and hard-hitting.
This was another belter by Hodge; she certainly does deliver the unputdownable novel!
