    It s safe to say I was hooked on this story from beginning to end I have seen lots of reviewers who were wary of the premise how could anyone in their right mind enter someone else s house to return their lost keys and think that was the best idea I m going to touch on that below, but needless to say since this is fiction, if you can suspend your need for a realistic catalyst, I think you ll enjoy this story as well One of my favorite attributes to Bale as an author is how, as a man, he can write such relatable female characters In each book of his that I ve read I feel as though he has taken some of my darkest fears and deepest worries as a parent and brought them to life this could be due to the fact that he was, for a time, a stay at home parent himself and fully involved in child rearing I always find the tiny details he places in his stories of various emotions and fierce protection of the mothers he creates to be what has placed him in my circle of favorite authors.I really want to stay away from talking about the plot, but I did want to mention that yes, the premise here is quite out there for most folks What really got me thinking though was how quick we are to judge what other s do without thinking of how we might act under similar circumstances I began pondering how, as a mother of two small ones, I am constantly exhausted and walking...

    This psychological thriller is rather different from Tom Bale s other books that I have read, the story is much less fast paced for starters The central character is Jen Cornish, a woman who has left her husband, and is struggling to cope as a single mother taking care of her young son, Charlie One day she spies a neighbour that she does not know, drop his keys Jen picks them up but fails to attract his attention She makes the momentous decision to use the keys to enter his house in search of pen and paper to leave him a note, whilst noting the artwork in the place Jen is to live to regret her kind and thoughtful gesture, although I really can t see many other people entering the house of a stranger The police come to arrest Jen for burglary and criminal damage as Jen s life begins to unravel.This is a story of conspiracy, lies, ...

    This novel goes in a different direction from the last two, further along the psychological spectrum, and for my part, suffers for it Tom Bale is a talented writer, both All Fall Down and Skin and Bones were excellent exciting, engrossing, darker This one was good enough and still well put together, but the main character i...

    Why don t I see Tom Bale books being read by my friends He s totally underrated He has a talent for writing extremely gripping, intricate stories This one features short chapters, which I love It makes it easier to find a stopping point if you can put it down Some readers may be bothered by certain decisions that the main character makes, but in reality we all act differently in different scenarios and we ve all made a seemingly small decision before that came back to bite us Single mom Jen used to live a life filled with adventures in faraway places Now her adventure is raising her son young Charlie She s trying to keep it together as she goes through a divorce and custody agreements with his father Freddie is not the reliable type, and she worries that he ll set a bad example for the boy A legitimate concern, but that s about to be the least of her worriesWhen she sees a man she knows by sight drop his keys and isn t able to stop him before he rushes off, she doesn t know what to do She s running late for work and doesn t have a lot of options, but feels compelled to do the right thing and help out that stranger She ends up entering his home to find a pen and paper to leave a note on, telling the man she has the ke...
