Who is more dangerous? An enemy? A friend? Or a lover?

Bonnie Graham stands in the open door of her friend's apartment. She is alone, except for the dead body lying in a pool of blood on the floor. What happened? What will Bonnie do now? Whom can she turn to? And what role has she played in the murderous events?

Bonnie is a music teacher who has spent a long, hot summer in London rehearsing with a band to play at a friend's wedding. It was supposed to be fun, but the band members find the complicated knots of their friendships--some old, some new--unraveling as the days themselves unwind. What was meant to be a summer of happiness, love, and music turns deadly as lovers betray one another, passions turn murderous, and friendship itself becomes a crime. Everyone tells lies. But is anyone prepared to tell the truth to uncover a murderer?

Nicci French, the author of eleven internationally bestselling novels including Killing Me Softly , Catch Me When I Fall , and Losing You , delivers a sexy, intricate thriller about the temptation of secrets, the weight of lies, and the price of betrayal and suspicion.

For this genre of literature - is a very interesting book, in any case, better than most novels of suspense, so popular in recent years. The chapters "Before" and "After" are nicely interspersed. From my point of view "Before" is better written, the language richer than in the "After." Apparently, the victim, who has annoyed everyone, - is a dangerous and bad man, but it feels just the opposite, that he is better than most. Bonny G. acts and thinks often quite stupid. The dialogues are a bit long, and are as for the script of a film.

A nice quick suspense read, as our most of the novels by this author ( or couple). Not her best but better than a lot of similar books out there.
