Can you stop a murder after it’s already happened?
Late October. After midnight. You’re waiting up for your eighteen-year-old son. He’s past curfew. As you watch from the window, he emerges, and you realize he isn’t alone: he’s walking toward a man, and he’s armed.
You can’t believe it when you see him do it: your funny, happy teenage son, he kills a stranger, right there on the street outside your house. You don’t know who. You don’t know why. You only know your son is now in custody, his future shattered.
That night you fall asleep in despair. All is lost.
Until you wake . . .
. . . and it is yesterday.
And then you wake again . . .
. . . and it is the day before yesterday.
Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. With another chance to stop it. Somewhere in the past lies an answer. The trigger for this crime—and you don’t have a choice but to find it . . .
“Another ingeniously plotted genre-bender… McAllister succeeds in making us care, and the result is a tour de force.” — The Guardian

'A terrific premise, delivered with panache' CLARE MACKINTOSH
'Dark and intense . . . an exhilarating, hold-your-breath read!' Prima
It's the end of the night. You're walking home on your own.
Then you hear the sound every woman dreads. Footsteps. Behind you. Getting faster.
You're sure it's him - the man from the bar who wouldn't leave you alone.
You make a snap decision. You turn. You push. Your pursuer tumbles down the steps. He lies motionless, face-down on the floor.
Wait for the police to arrive. For judgement, for justice, whatever that may be. You just hope your husband, family and friends, everyone you love, will stand by you.
Stay silent. You didn't mean to do it. You were scared, you panicked. And no one saw. No one will ever know. If you leave now. If you keep quiet. For ever.
Which will it be?

Dopo aver passato la serata con la tua migliore amica, stai tornando a casa, da sola. Non c’è nessuno in giro.
Poi senti il rumore che ogni donna teme. Passi. Qualcuno ti sta seguendo. E si avvicina.
Tu sei sicura che sia lui: il tizio che ti ha importunato al bar. Insistente, molesto.
I passi sono sempre più vicini. Ormai lui è proprio alle tue spalle.
E allora reagisci d’istinto. Ti giri. Spingi. L’uomo perde l’equilibrio e cade lungo la scalinata. Poi rimane immobile, con la faccia a terra.
E adesso? Devi fare una scelta.
Chiami un’ambulanza. Soccorri l’uomo, e scopri che non è quello del bar. Ora devi convincere la polizia, tuo marito, la tua famiglia e i tuoi amici che sei innocente. Che eri in pericolo. Che non hai fatto nulla di male. Che è stato un incidente. Riuscirai a dimostrarlo?
Ti guardi attorno. Nessuno ha visto niente. Te ne vai. E il giorno dopo scopri che l’uomo è morto. E che non era quello del bar. Ora devi solo distruggere tutte le prove che possono collegarti a lui. E mentire, a tutti. A tuo marito, alla tua famiglia, ai tuoi amici. Riuscirai a resistere?

Es ist nach Mitternacht, du wartest auf deinen Sohn. Du siehst ihn kommen, doch er ist nicht allein. Du kannst kaum begreifen, was du beobachtest – dein lebensfroher jugendlicher Sohn ermordet einen Fremden.
Du weißt nicht, wen. Du weißt nicht, warum.
Du weißt nur, dass seine Zukunft verloren ist. Deine Welt zerbricht.
In dieser Nacht schläfst du verzweifelt ein. Als du aufwachst, bist du im Gestern, dann im Vorgestern. Jeden Morgen wachst du einen weiteren Tag vor dem Mord auf.

Und deine einzige Chance, die Zukunft deines Sohnes zu retten ...

In ihrem außergewöhnlichen Thriller »Going Back« stellt die mehrfache britische Bestsellerautorin Gillian McAllister ihre Protagonistin Jen vor einige elementare Fragen. Denn würde eine Mutter nicht alles für ihr Kind tun? Selbst, wenn der eigene Sohn zum Mörder wird? Und was, wenn man die Möglichkeit bekäme, diesen Mord ungeschehen zu machen? Das Ergebnis ist ein atmosphärischer Zeitschleifen-Thriller, der Mutterschaft und mütterlichen Instinkt in den Fokus rückt.
Reese Witherspoon wählte Gillian McAllisters »Going Back« als Augustlektüre für ihren Buchclub und hob es damit auf Platz 2 der New York Times Bestsellerliste!
Das sagt Reese Witherspoon über das Buch:
»Die August-Lektüre des @reesesbookclub ist ›Going Back‹ von @gillianmauthor. Dieses Buch ist SO gut. Es handelt von einer Mutter, die sich Sorgen um ihren jugendlichen Sohn macht, weil er eines Abends lange unterwegs ist. Als sie aus dem Fenster schaut, sieht sie, wie er einen Mann in ihrem Vorgarten ersticht (!!), aber als sie am nächsten Morgen aufwacht, ist es der Tag, bevor ihr Sohn die Tat begeht. Sie reist immer weiter in die Vergangenheit zurück, um herauszufinden, was mit ihrem Sohn passiert ist. Das Buch ist EXTREM spannend und perfekt für den Abschluss des Sommers. Ich kann es kaum erwarten zu hören, was ihr denkt!«
