His and Hers

What it’s about?
There are two sides to every story: yours and mine, ours and theirs, His & Hers. Which means someone is always lying.
Anna Andrews finally has what she wants. Almost. She’s worked hard to become the main TV presenter of the BBC’s lunchtime news, putting work before friends, family, and her now ex-husband. So, when someone threatens to take her dream job away, she’ll do almost anything to keep it.
When asked to cover a murder in Blackdown―the sleepy countryside village where she grew up―Anna is reluctant to go. But when the victim turns out to be one of her childhood friends, she can’t leave. It soon becomes clear that Anna isn’t just covering the story, she’s at the heart of it.
DCI Jack Harper left London for a reason, but never thought he’d end up working in a place like Blackdown. When the body of a young woman is discovered, Jack decides not to tell anyone that he knew the victim, until he begins to realise he is a suspect in his own murder investigation.
One of them knows more than they are letting on. Someone isn’t telling the truth. Alternating between Anna’s and Jack’s points of view, His & Hers is a fast-paced, complex, and dark puzzle that will keep readers guessing until the very end.
What I think:
This book was so good I couldn’t put it down!
In fact, I stayed up well past my bedtime reading it and got up early.yo finish it.
This a hard book to review as I don’t want to give any spoilers at all.
The book alternates between Anna and Jack who are both involved in the investigation of a murder.
Jack is the detective on the case and Anna is a television news journalist sent to cover the story.
And they used to be married.
And they both know the victim.
And they both behave very suspiciously.
The story emerges gradually with so many twists and turns. I had no idea who was telling the truth and which characters to trust. Just when I thought I had worked it all out something else was revealed to pull the rug from under my feet.
And the ending blew me away.
Such a great thriller. Definitely one of the best books I have read this year.
