Nurse, Lizzi Yates, is assigned to provide end-of-life care to Charlie Maidley, one of Britain’s footballing legends, on the condition she keeps his identity a secret.
Unbeknownst to Lizzi, Charlie’s doctors have agreed to allow his sister, Miriam, to take him home to die on the strict understanding he remains in an induced coma, due to his history of assaulting women—a side effect of his brain tumour.
Miriam goes away on business, leaving Lizzi in charge, but a mishap with Charlie’s medication has Lizzi questioning why he is spending his final days comatose. Deciding he is being sedated without just cause, she makes the call to wake him up. However, a string of events and the discovery of a girl’s body at the bottom of the garden lead her to wonder if she’s made the right decision.
Who is the killer?
Could Lizzi be his next victim?
I went in to this loving the sound of this book. It had so much of what I ask for.
What I really like is that it doesn’t deal with the crimes only but the lives of the people that have been affected.
The characters are so strong that you can’t help feeling that you are truly part of the story and have a very close relationship with the characters.
Charlie was one of my favourite characters as he really was very interesting and seemed to want to just be allowed to live his life. He also has a personality that really just draws you to him.
Lizzy is a sweet nurse who is hired to take care of Charlie. She has this personality that makes her one of the most likable people. She has a very strong ability and you are pulled into her life and just feel for her.
Miriam the sister of Charlie and one person who is truly a bitch. She has no ability to feel for anyone but herself. She is very selfish and I never could like her at all.
I was so happy when reading this book as it just brought out so many emotions and you really did feel like you were in there with them. I did guess some of the issues but that doesn’t diminish the pleasure from the book
