WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS BASED ON LIES?
When Joe Lynch stumbles across his wife driving into a hotel car park while she’s supposed to be at work, he’s intrigued enough to follow her in.
And when he witnesses her in an angry altercation with family friend Ben, he knows he ought to intervene.
But just as the confrontation between the two men turns violent, and Ben is knocked unconscious, Joe’s young son has an asthma attack – and Joe must flee in order to help him.
When he returns, desperate to make sure Ben is OK, Joe is horrified to find that Ben has disappeared.
And that’s when Joe receives the first message .
What began as an innocent sighting of his wife’s car by their son, turned into more and more questions.
In the space of a week Joe’s life unravels. Everything he thought had been a lie. Joe is happy with his wife and child and he loves teaching. And he thought his wife was happy as well.
But lies are like loose threads on a sweater. Pull one and the rest quickly come out. And Joe’s entire marriage has been a lie.
I felt so sorry for Joe and Will. And I was left with a lot of questions. How well can we know and trust someone? Even your spouse?
This was a good, twisty and unexpected ending. I enjoyed every bit of it!
