Synopsis

Welcome to a school reunion you won’t forget

FRENCH RIVIERA, WINTER 1992
On a freezing night, as her high school campus is engulfed by a snowstorm, 19-year-old Vinca Rockwell runs away with Alexis, her philosophy teacher.

No one will ever see them again.

FRENCH RIVIERA, SPRING 2017
Formerly inseparable, Thomas, Maxime and Fanny – Vinca’s best friends – have not spoken in twenty-five years. But when they receive an invitation to their school reunion, they know they must go back one final time.

Because there is a body buried in that school…

…and they’re the ones who put it there.

My Thoughts

This book grabs your attention from the word GO and doesn’t let go until it ends.  The short, punchy chapters and to the point narrative make this novel a non-stop journey of thrills and surprises.

The narrative switches from past to present and weaves a dark and twisted tale of deceit, love and betrayal.  It’s told in a way that reveals little revelations here and there but never giving the game away which adds suspense and tension throughout.

Mainly told from the perspective of Thomas who, along with his friend Maxime and Fanny, buried a body underneath the school.  They learn that the school is to be demolished as part of refurbishment and realise they have to go back on last time….by attending The Reunion!  Thomas is still haunted by his actions and it becomes clear that someone else knows his secret when he receives a sinister note.

Occasionally the story changes narrator and we get a different point of view.   As the narrative moves on, the events of the past begin to piece together like a jigsaw and the events of the current day become more and more tense.  Just when you think you’ve sussed it, you haven’t.

A deliciously dark and twisted thriller.
