Some secrets are best kept buried
… But someone won’t let her forget …
Decades ago, the disturbing disappearance of an eleven-year-old girl shook the tiny village Hannah grew up in. Now Hannah receives the shock of her life when she is told her sister, April, has committed suicide. Distraught, she returns to her childhood home for the funeral.
But someone who refuses to forget the past has sickening shocks in store for the grieving family and soon latch onto Hannah instead, leaving her looking over her shoulder at every turn.
Now the nightmares aren’t only inside Hannah’s head …
The close-knit community is rattled as devastating secrets and unspeakable truths are shaken up and it seems everyone has a secret to hide …
Hannah feels her grip on reality slipping as she starts to suspect even those closest to her – including her husband Will. April had uttered words of warning against him, but was it merely jealousy? Or does Hannah truly have something to fear from the father of her child?
Could the danger be closer to home than she realises?
And why is Hannah’s own father insisting that the past should remain in the past?
In My Wake is an unputdownable psychological thriller about a woman forced to confront her devastating past. Fans of K.L. Slater, Shalini Boland, Laura Marshall and The Silent Patient will love the shocking twists and unexpected revelations.
In My Wake is a slow burn, seep into your skin, kind of psychological thriller. Some readers will love that, some wont. I, for one, love this kind of novel. It is almost a desperate feeling that seeps into me when I read a psychological thriller that doesn’t throw everything at me, quickly. I am glued to the pages because I know something is going to happen, but I’m not sure when. I find that compelling.
Ruth Harrow is new to me, but I really enjoy her writing style. As the mystery of this novel unfolded, I really thought I knew the answers, and then Ruth would throw a twist at me and I wouldn’t know anything. That is awesome.
Overall, I really enjoyed In My Wake. It’s a good read for people who enjoy slow burn, psychological thrillers. People who enjoy the suspense of waiting for the answers, that’s the kind of reader who will respond to this. Check it out.
