Libri di Gillian McAllisterLingua:Libri Italiani
From UK bestselling author Gillian McAllister comes an astonishing, compulsively twisty psychological thriller about a mother who witnesses her teenage son stab a man and then seizes on an unconventional way to try to save him, deemed “perfection, every word, every moment” by Lisa Jewell.
Can you stop a murder after it’s already happened?
Late October. After midnight. You’re waiting up for your seventeen-year-old son. He’s late. 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 . . .
«Un suspense psicologico unico e perfettamente congegnato.»
«Uno 'Sliding Doors thriller' originale e coinvolgente.»
«Una premessa geniale.»
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?
Would you run, or stay and call an ambulance, if it was you that pushed him?
'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?
