Living with the truth can be murder... A powerful debut and gripping thriller that follows Sophie as she tries to track down her best friend's killer.
Nine months. Two weeks. Six days.
That's how long recovering addict Sophie's been drug-free. Four months ago her best friend Mina died in what everyone believes was a drug deal gone wrong - a deal they think Sophie set up. Only Sophie knows the truth. She and Mina shared a secret, but there was no drug deal. Mina was deliberately murdered.
Forced into rehab for a drug addiction she'd already beaten, Sophie's finally out and on the trail of the killer. But can she track them down before they come for her?

I don't even know where to start with this book. It's completely captivated me and I feel emotionally drained by the entire thing. One thing's for certain and that's that this is one hell of a debut. I may as well give Tess Sharpe my money right now because I know I'll be reading her work from here on - UNCORKED THOUGHTS
