But the calm is shattered when a woman who looks eerily similar to his ex-girlfriend Laura turns up to stay in the cottage, and leaves a mysterious note in the guest book.
Now Jacob’s seeing Laura everywhere—a glimpse of her face across the street, her music box left outside his house, a gift he gave her years before hanging from the trees.
But it can’t be Laura. Because Laura’s dead.
Someone knows Jacob’s secret—what really happened the night Laura died—and they’re out for revenge…

I found myself really motor through this one, it’s a very decent thriller, with plenty of twists and a very decently crafted tale, with an ending that will make you think and ask some questions.
The characters themselves weren’t overly easy to take to, but Murph the dog saved the day.
Dark, a little bit brooding with an atmospheric feel. It’s a good read and I would recommend it to fans of the physiological thrillers.
