About this deal

You know from the outset this will be a twisty psychological thriller and it's all that, with the storyline taking a few left turns to keep the suspense tightly coiled' Herald Sun'Ratchets up psychological suspense with a cleverly constructed plot that can be devoured in one go' Sydney Morning Herald'A frantic domestic thriller . A woman races against time to find her son in this tense and twisty thriller by the Top Ten bestselling author of The Wrong Woman. I feel conflicted about the ending as I had to suspend my belief (and not necessarily in a good way).

Deftly written, lean in style, this is a gripping read from a true talent' Better Reading'Twisty' West Australian'Propulsive. I didn’t see the twist coming at all which I loved, and I also loved the nods to all of his other novels and characters throughout as well. She’s a heavy drinker, and presents as perhaps a little paranoid, in part troubled by a secret from her past that Pomare teases out.But Lou as brought Samuel up to never lie (which is an underlying theme throughout this story), and now he's disappeared. Those readers who are already familiar with Pomare’s work will know that he is a true master when it comes to plot twists, thanks to his well received back catalogue.

Her ex-husband is dismissive when she phones him, accusing her of being overbearing, among other things, but Lou is certain there is something wrong. I thought I was only halfway through the main book, but it was actually near the end and I just thought ‘is that it?

I reckon a lot of people will pass this one over due to the lockdown emphasis and they are gonna miss out on a short and fast listen. Expect a cheap Covid plot, a miserable, alcoholic, overbearing mother, shitty father, and boring plot until about 80% in. Opening with an outstandstanding prologue, this twist-filled, fast-paced mystery moves at a breathless speed. The book also includes a sneak peek of Pomare’s next book ‘Seventeen Years Later’ which I am holding back on reading until it’s published because I need to read the whole book! Lou has raised her son to be honest and has never before had to suspect him of harbouring secrets and lies.

At the heart of this novel is grief, the overwhelming way in which it can alter a person's mind and actions.As the third wave of the virus hits, all inhabitants of Melbourne are given until 8pm to get to their homes. CHRISTIAN WHITE'This grabbed me from the opening page and didn't let go' MICHAEL ROBOTHAM'The thrill and fear arrive early in Home Before Night and doesn't leave until the final pages. However, I felt it ended too quickly and wrapped up sharply, leaving me feeling a bit short -changed. Weak and unsubstantial - as evidenced by the way that almost a third of the paperback is actually a seven chapter preview of his next book! There’s no real shocks or surprises here and the length of the book is 282 pages, the story is only 189 pages and the rest is packed with a preview of next years release.
