Get ready for the biggest crime debut of 2019... Six friends. One killer. Who do you trust? "A dark, deep, terrific thriller and a scorching portrait of friendship and its betrayal" Nicci French On a hot July night in 1983, six school friends go camping in the forest. Bright and brilliant, they are destined for great things, and young Aurora Jackson is dazzled to be allowed to tag along. Thirty years later, a body is discovered. DCI Sheens is called to the scene, but he already knows what's waiting for him: Aurora Jackson, found at long last. But that's not all. The friends have all maintained their innocence, but the body is found in a hideaway only the six of them knew about. It seems the killer has always lurked very close to home...

This one had an interesting premise w/plenty of suspects. It was well written & held my attention, but I didn't enjoy it quite as much as I had hoped, probably because it was a procedural book set in another country, & while I always find them interesting, there's also always a little bit of a disconnect because of the differences. Also, while there were clues left for the reader, I would have enjoyed a stronger "aha!" moment. Barely a pick for me

johncadams I like the implication in the title that she could be the perpetrator! 2mo
BookDragonNotWorm @johncadams Yes!!! It could also bode well for a supernatural revenge angle! Definitely a good title! 2mo

I read about this on a blog and thought the premise sounded intriguing. In 1983 seven teens go camping but only six return...30 years later, the body of the 7th teen is found. Was she murdered?

The 30 year gap maybe hurt the plotting. There were parts I didn‘t quite believe. But the team of detectives were interesting and this is no. 1 in a new series, so that bodes well for future books. 😀

My second #20in4 completed book.

I liked this book enough, but didn‘t think it was great. I thought the beginning was really good. It pulled me in and I enjoyed the mystery and suspense of following the investigation. But, as it for further in, I felt like it really slowed down and got a bit boring. I think this could have been cut down a bit and still been good.

She looked round at him. He was slightly glassy-eyed. She wondered if that was what the drugs did. Jojo was crouched down behind him, rubbing at her nose. How much had they had?

I enjoyed this and found it to be a satisfying page turner. There is a not at all subtle homage to The Secret History in this tale of a group of popular kids who are involved in the disappearance of the sister of one of the group members. The story is told with flashbacks interspersed with the present day investigation, which I liked. I didn‘t care for the side plots involving the detectives but perhaps the author intends to write more about them?

I didn't feel invested in the characters, not enough background on the main detective to make me warm up him. Ending was trite 😕 Not for me. Even Jerry fell asleep 😉

Seven teenagers entered a forest for a weekend of camping and fun. One disappeared in the middle of the night and six were left wondering what happened. Thirty years later that missing person‘s body is found. That‘s the gist of the plot without giving too much away. This was a fantastic debut. I am rating it four stars out of five. @penguinrandomhouse #gythalodge #sheliesinwait

This weekend I went to see the movie Us. It was really good. As for this story, the teacher has issues and is a prime suspect. Rightfully so. #sheliesinwait #gythalodge

Thirty years ago six teens go on a camp out but only five come out. This, for me, was a page turner, I just couldn‘t put it down. I give high praise to the author Gytha Lodge for her development of each character so that you felt like you knew them. Looking forward to reading her next book. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Was a little late finishing the NetGalley ARC, but I really enjoyed it. I thought the premise was going to lead to a pretty simplistic plot, but the author did well in coming up with some twists and turns.

What could have happened to Aurora? Someone knows but isn't telling.

Uncovering bones from a thirty-year-old disappearance/murder case wasn‘t something the police thought would happen after their very thorough search and investigation back then.

If you enjoy being a detective, you will definitely enjoy this book.

The story line is good and nicely carried out with some twists and of course secrets being kept. 5/5
