"There’s perhaps a shade too much dependence on withholding information from the reader, but that thud you hear is Kernick whipping the rug from under your feet again."

Gentler literary qualities come second to the torrent of cliffhangers and revelations that soon establish that none of the narrators, including Kate’s property-developer tycoon father, is telling the truth. He’s got previous, Matt’s a professional actor for hire and Kate may know more than she says about her secret sister’s death. Then there is the nasty, greedy stepbrother and ex-wife. There’s perhaps a shade too much dependence on withholding information from the reader, but that thud you hear is Kernick whipping the rug from under your feet again.
