A co-worker told me about this novel from British author, Sabine Durrant. She later chose it as her Staff Recommendation and, after letting it sit on my shelf for over a year, I finally decided to crack the spine.
Man, what a read! The story follows Gaby. She’s a wife to a work-alcoholic husband, mother to a beautiful daughter, and star of Mornin’ All, a popular talk show in London that is similar to The Talk that we have here. One morning, while on a run, she finds the body of a young woman. Police arrive, take her statement, and it seems things should return to normal after that. But the police come back with more questions and soon accusations follow. Friends and colleagues begin to distance themselves from Gaby. The only person on her side is Jack, a freelance journalist looking for his big break. Together, they begin to investigate the young woman, hoping to find her true killer.
