Your son said he was home. WHY DID HE LIE?
The new up-all-night thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Richard and Judy pick The Holiday, now a major NETFLIX Drama.
I should have known something was wrong. I should have sensed it. Felt it in the air, like the build-up of pressure before a thunderstorm, that heavy, loaded calm.
Andy and Laura are good parents. They tell their son Connor that he can go out with friends to celebrate completing his exams, but he must be home by midnight.
When Connor misses his curfew, it sets off a series of events that will change the lives of five families forever.
Because five teenagers went into the woods that night, but only four came out. And telling the truth might mean losing everything…
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
As a parent, the thought of your child being in any kind of trouble sets your heart racing so I could fully understand what Andy and Laura are going through when their son Connor not only misses his curfew but refuses to say why and what actually happened to keep him out all night.
Even when the police come knocking on the door Connor still won’t tell his parents about what has happened which sends the readers mind into overdrive as to whether Connor has indeed got anything to do with events that surround that evening or if as his parents adamantly believe, is innocent.
Wow, this is one tangled and twisted story. The author has you throwing suspicion at quite a few characters and will leave you wondering whether the parents of the five teenagers really know their children at all. It was interesting to see how far as a parent you will go to protect your child. It makes you wonder how far you would go for your own child.
The Curfew was a tense and nail-biting story that consumed my every waking hour until I turned the last page. The need to know what happened to the missing teenager intensified through out and had me racing through the pages. Even though this author has been on my radar for a while, this is actually my first novel of his that I have read. Having now finished it, it certainly won’t be my last! Engrossingly good!
