Library Journal Review

Years ago, Claire's mother disappeared on the night of Hop-tu-naa, the Isle of Man's version of Halloween, and was presumed dead. Now an emotionally scarred teenager with a circle of five friends, Claire believes that she knows who killed her mother and plans a daring Halloween prank that involves breaking into the man's house. The night ends in tragedy, and one member of the group is jailed for his role in the incident. Guilt and pain over their actions tear the group apart, but they begin to rebuild their lives and move forward. However, the episode casts a shadow over all of them, and it comes back to haunt them as one member of the group, then another, is killed on Hop-tu-naa. Ewan's latest thriller (after Safe House) is an engrossing story of revenge, remorse, and one young woman's ongoing search for the truth. Verdict Fans of thrillers and suspense will enjoy this latest tale from a fairly new British author, although the ending is, unfortunately, too predictable.-Linda Oliver, MLIS, Colorado Springs © Copyright 2015.
