Publisher's Summary

When Zoe Barry walks into Professor David Connolly's office and announces that she is his daughter, he is left reeling. Suddenly his family - imperfect, flawed but working - is trying to find space for someone new. But Zoe's stories don't quite add up, and lies become indistinguishable from truths.
The family struggle to make sense of whether she is a sister, a daughter, a friend, an enemy. But no one could have expected where it all might end. Because they have let into their home a girl that they do not know. And now everything they have built has begun to violently, determinedly, break apart.

Absolutely loved this!

Any additional comments?

I came across a recommendation for this on deadgoodbooks and thought I would give it a try. So glad I did as I loved it. It is not a book with lots of twists, turns and shocks, but it has a sense of menace underlying the story. It's well written, with well drawn characters and great narration.

Good and kept my attention

I like these books about these sociopaths. Every time I read or listen to one I think, ‘I know a freak like that!’ It Is refreshing to know that these abnoxious troublemakers are, at least in books, caught out and banished.

The story was good, the performance was good, it was a good length, and the narrator was not annoying which is not easy to find it seems.

Had to pause it when I left the room so know I was enjoying it all the way through. Story was believable and the characters were very human and easy to relate to. Even the dud of a husband that was manipulated by this foolish girl was believable....or maybe that is just a testament to some of the people I know.

You won’t be thrown about on a ‘rollercoaster’ but it will keep your interest all the way through. Worth the dosh.
