Publisher's Summary

Christopher would never hurt anyone. Not intentionally. Even after everything that’s happened, I still believe that....
Christopher Harris is a lonely boy. A boy who has never fit into his family. Who has always felt something was missing from his life. Until one day, when he discovers a suitcase in his family’s attic, and a secret about his mother that changes everything.... 
Mother will leave you reeling and hold you breathless until the very last minute. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, The Sister, and Apple Tree Yard.
"An intelligent psychological drama with a gasp-making twist." (Good Housekeeping)
"Up there with the big hitters. Move over Gone Girl you’ve got company on the top shelf." (Read & Rated Book Reviews)
"Breathlessly exciting." (Linda’s Book Bag)
"A sinister, deliciously wicked foray into the dark recesses of our personality. Lynes is a promising addition to the prolific list of stellar writers of psychological thrillers which includes Gillian Flynn, S J Watson, Louise Doughty, Elizabeth Haynes et al." (NB Magazine)
"Sent chills down my spine... completely enticing." (Damp Pebbles)
"Oozes with atmospheric tones, vivid descriptions and pure, haunting emotions." (Reviewed the Book)
"S.E. Lynes has raised the bar when it comes to phenomenal story telling." (Between Dreams I Read)

Waiting for all the “exciting” twists

This book was okay but not as heart thumping and wildly exciting as so many people thought. Ben was brought Into the story abruptly and I quickly figured out why even though he does not mention again until later.

This was a mother here and over here

All I can say is what tangled weave of a novel this was... and The End....?????

Not my type of book

This book was ok. I didn't return it but I would not recommend it. I found it opposing and boring really. I didn't like the main character Chris so I never really cared about his story. The narrator did a good job on this very mundane book.

Wow! This may just be the best story I’ve ever listened to. I can’t wait to read more from this author
