What if you’d been accused of one of the worst crimes imaginable?

Detective Inspector Matthew Adams is slowly picking up the pieces from a case that nearly cost him the lives of his entire family and his own sanity too. On the surface, he seems to be moving on, but he drinks to forget – and when he closes his eyes, the nightmares still come.

But the past is the past – or is it? Because the evil Patrick Sullivan might be out of the picture, but there’s somebody who is just as intent on making Matthew’s life hell, and they’re doing it in the cruelest way possible.

When Matthew finds himself accused of a horrific and violent crime, will his family stand by him? And will he even be around to help when his new enemy goes after them as well?

  1. Hand on heart I can’t say I’ve ever read a bad book from Sheryl Browne. In fact her writing just gets better and better.

    In After She’s Gone we were introduced to DI Matthew Adams. We learnt how he’d suffered as a boy, being bullied and much worse, by Patrick Sullivan. The reason for such hatred? Because his father was a policeman. Sullivan was someone who matured into a hardened criminal; a psychopath intent on destroying Matthew in the cruellest most painful way possible – by targeting his family. I loved Matthew for his honesty, his bravery in the face of great danger and the way – given the stressful situations he was often put in – he coped with his asthma. For me he was the perfect hero.

    Sins of the Father finds him caught up in yet another nightmare when he wakes up in a hotel room covered in blood and can’t remember how he got there. A body is discovered and Matthew finds himself on the run as he battles to prove his innocence. Who would do this and why do certain aspects of this murder trigger echoes from the past? Then his young daughter is kidnapped. This brings him face to face with the killer where an even more brutal fate awaits him.

    I’m not going to give anything else way, only to say I became so immersed in this book that I stayed up until 1.20 in the morning to finish it – and I don’t do that very often!

    This story is a page turning white knuckle ride which left me even more smitten with DI Adams. I now eagerly await the next book in the series.

    All in all an exciting and gripping five star sequel.

    Wowsers!!! I have literally just finished this book and I’m all over the place. This book is an absolute gut wrenching, heartbreaking, edge of the seat read.
    The story centres around DI Matthew Adams and his wonderful family. He is unknowingly plunged into Internet fame and for the very worst reason possible. With no memory of the incident it’s up to him to try and determine what happened and who is out to get him.
    This book is brilliantly written. I loved the Adams family and hated the “bad guy”. The characters are so easy to relate to. You feel the heartbreak and devastation right along side them. There were times reading this book that I didn’t think my heart was going to make it.
    Read this book. Lock yourself in a room….bring tissues and wine!!! A fantastic book!!
