Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The story is mostly narrated by Francis Scroll, who was 13 when his younger brother, Lucas, died in the bathtub upstairs while Scroll family hosted a dinner party downstairs with the Farr family. Lucas was discovered by the Farr’s son, Sam, who refuses to utter a word. So what happened to Lucas? And who is responsible for kidnapping Sam’s 9-year old son 23 years later? And what happens to the Scroll family in the ensuing years?
I enjoyed the book, which had a few plot twists and surprises you won’t see coming. Francis, with all his phobias, is a likeable character and overall, this was quite an enjoyable read!
