ABOUT THIS BOOK
What would you do to protect your family?
During a family holiday in Italy, you get an urgent call from your sister.
There's been an accident: she hit a man with her car and he's dead.
She's overcome with terror - fearing years in a foreign jail away from her child.
She asks for your help. It wasn't her fault, not really. She'd cover for you, so will you do the same for her?
But when the police come calling, the lies start. And you each begin to doubt your trust in one another.
What really happened that night?
Who is lying to who?
Who will be the first to crack?
Your sister rings you frantic and upset. There's been an accident and she needs your help. She needs you to fix this for her. She needs you to cover it up. Would you do it? Does family come before all else? Well sit down with a cup of tea and delve into THAT NIGHT by Gillian McAllister, and it might help you answer those questions.
Cathy, Joe, and Frannie are siblings who work together in the family business and holiday together too. When Cathy and Joe get a terrifying call from their sister Frannie, they rush out to find her standing over the body of a man that she has hit with her car. Frannie pleads with them to help her, to hide the body, and pretend like this never happens and while horrified at the idea, they don't want to see Frannie rotting in an Italian prison, taken away from her child. So they make a choice. A choice that will change all of their lives in ways that they could never possibly imagine.
Intriguing, compelling, and with characters that draw you in even when you dislike them (intensely at times), THAT NIGHT by Gillian McAllister is the kind of story that you can really sink your teeth into and feel very invested in the outcome. Told from different points of view and at different time periods, there is a tension that permeates from the page and will leave you on edge until you find out how it all ended, and whether justice would prevail. There is plenty of misdirection and misleading behaviour, and at no point was I confident that I could trust the characters in this story and what they were telling me, which all adds to the mystery of the plot.
THAT NIGHT by Gillian McAllister is that book that will keep you up reading into the early hours of the night. It is that book that will leave you questioning what you would do in the same situation. And it is that book that you hope to see on your tv or movie screen at some point in the future because you know that it would work so well.
An excellent story by an excellent storyteller, THAT NIGHT, is a must-read for fiction fans everywhere.
