What I Never Told You is a dark, psychological thriller by Louise Mullins. This novel was engrossing and all consuming; once I picked this one up, I could not put it down. I enjoyed this one in one sitting.
The plot opens with a man, Antony Wells, being arrested for images depicting minors in sexual situations. He is taken into custody, continuously asserting his innocence. From this moment, the novel is told in alternating first person perspectives. Kate, a victim of abuse, is battered and broken, sinking deeper and deeper into disarray as the lies she has so carefully hidden begin to unravel. Theresa, the mother of the accused, struggles with her involvement in her son’s charges and questions whether or not she enabled her son. The last perspective comes from the lead detective, DI Silver, as the case is rolled out and he, along with his partner DI Locke, work to make any evidence stick and bring his victims to justice.
This novel moves extremely quickly, I could barely catch my breath as Mullins took me on a wild ride. And that end twist? Whew! I didn’t see that one coming a mile away.
Fans of Fiona Barton’s, The Widow, will love this novel. I gave this one a 4/5 stars on Goodreads. This novel is out TODAY! Do yourself a favour and pick up a copy: you will not regret it!
