About this deal

We can see how Jen catches a person lying convincingly only because she saw the future and is coming to the past from the future.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I bet now that I know the ending, if I go back and reread it again, I would catch so many things I missed the first time around.The author succeeded in making the readers curious to know how far a mother will go to save his son. I’ve read lots that have flicked between past and present so this was totally unique and it works incredibly well.

And it is also hell of mind bending, twisty mystery guarantees to burn your extra brain cells wit the surprises you never see them coming! This makes sense, given how focused Jen is on her own disaster, but the sharp focus on the main characters can make things seem a little fuzzy at the edges.La varietà e ricchezza dei riferimenti, sia letterari che cinematografici, trovo che sia un valore aggiunto. The concept of the novel is fantastic and very different from her previous novels, yet it’s also full of many clever twists and turns you don’t see coming which is one of her trademarks. The premise is that a mother/lawyer witnesses her 18-year-old son murder a man in the front of their home. And thank fuck she didn't toss in the "catching up with a friend over coffee" epilogue – you know the ones that summarize what everyone's up to after the final act? When Jen sees her son commit a murder right in front of their house, she’s understandably devastated and determined to help him in anyway she can.

The time loop is merely a device to set up the premise and enable the story to be told in a different way.

It follows Wrong Place Wrong Time, which was selected for the Radio 2 book club and was the Reese's Book Club August '22 pick. But besides the few people like Daniel Craig where their eyes literally pierce you with their brightness, let’s just stop making it significant.
