The lost hours is an engaging new thriller from Susan Lewis, a book that questions how well you can ever know someone and explores how far trust can be stretched.
David and Annie are still very much in love, even after twenty years of marriage they are happy with three children and a close-knit family who operate a successful business together. But their lives are shattered when David is arrested as the prime suspect of a murder that was committed twenty years ago.
The couple’s life is turned upside down, as events from all those years ago are dug up and memories of a difficult time come flooding back. Their relationship is strong, but is it strong enough to withstand the scrutiny of a time when not everything was as perfect as it seems now?
Annie wants more than anything to believe in her husband’s innocence, but as she looks for answers she begins to realise that there are a few lost hours on that fateful day that she just can’t solve. Doubt begins to creep in and their carefully built life starts to crumble as the uncertainty builds.
The characters are well-crafted, you could feel the love in this family but no one was without their own flaws which meant you were kept guessing ‘whodunnit’ right until the end. Susan Lewis delivers another intriguing story with The lost hours, it certainly had that one more chapter feel!
The lost hours is available for a recommended retail price of R330.
