Angela’s world has shrunk to the size of a police interrogation room, and the latest in a series of officers is asking her about Saskia again, her ex’s wife. Angela decides it’s time to explain everything, to help “fill in the picture” as the police keep saying - but it will be on her terms. She will fill in the whole picture, a story that goes back 10 years to high school and her first love – Saskia’s husband.
Our little secret is a story about lost love, shifting alliances; untrustworthy people and strained relationships. The ending lands solidly, but is still unexpected. This is a first novel by Canadian writer, Roz Nay, and a psychological thriller of considerable skill. Our reviewer can only hope that this is the start of a long and prolific career.
