School Nurse Anna Pierce is head of the nursing station in a private school in Glasgow. She loves her job and has an amazingly brilliant reputation. One day she is accused of hitting a pupil, Victoria Carmichael, who is well known for lying. Anna cannot believe what has happened and after she has been interviewed by the police, she receives a text message from Victoria, known as Tori asking to speak to her. She doesn’t go to meet her but Tori is found dead at the bottom of the stairs in her home the next morning.
Cleverly plotted with likeable and not-so-likeable characters throughout the author weaves a tale of lies, deceit and secret trysts. Nobody seems to have escaped the ability to lie and, as the story progresses, the shocks keep on coming: right to the end.
Thank you to NetGalley, Hodder & Stoughton, and Julie Corbin for my ARC in return for my honest review.
Excellent, highly recommended.
