My Rating: 4/5
There are two sides to every story: yours and mine, ours and theirs, His and Hers. Which means someone is always lying.
When a woman is murdered in Blackdown, a quintessentially British village, newsreader Anna Andrews is reluctant to cover the case. Detective Jack Harper is suspicious of her involvement, until he becomes a suspect in his own murder investigation.
Someone isn’t telling the truth, and some secrets are worth killing to keep.
His & Hers is a twisty, smart, psychological thriller. A gripping tale of suspense, told by expertly-drawn narrators that will keep readers guessing until the very end.
Anna is a news reporter, and she returns to her hometown to report on a murder. The murdered woman was a friend of Anna’s. One of the detectives on the case is Anna’s ex-husband Jack, and he also knew the murdered woman.
Told with the alternating points of view of Anna, Jack, and the killer. Anna and Jack are divorced. Anna still lives in London, but Jack moved back to Blackdown. Anna’s return to Blackdown is more involved than simply reporting on a murder. While there is a murder investigation, there is also a lot of drama going on in Anna and Jack’s personal and professional lives.
A complex mystery that kept me guessing. Flawed and unreliable characters. Lots of drama. Dark, twisted, and clever.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
