This had me hooked from the start, though a little slow to start off it soon picked up the pace when we are thrown into a story of family, friendship, betrayal and ultimately murder.
Matt finds himself in a horrible situation, after ending up having drunken sex with his best friends mother he wakes up to find her dead in the bathroom, feeling guilty of the death of his cousin many years ago, he does everything he can to erase all evidence of his being there at the house that night before fleeing from the scene,
What happens as a result of this, see’s Matt harbouring the secret from his best friend Travis of what happened the night of his mother death, everything Matt is doing is to try to protect him and his family, though ultimately going about it in the wrong way. Detective Winston Radhauser senses that matt knows more than he letting on, but decides to give him time to reveal the truth.
The twists and turns had me hooked, and I could not put this down, it has me guessing right up to the end.
I hope this is not the last we hear of Detective Radhauser.
