With the recent suicide of man convicted of murdering two young children twenty year earlier, filmmaker Cody Swift has always questioned if Sidney was really the killer. Sidney, a man with a development disability, was an easy target for DI Fletcher and had been in prison doing the time.
Cody was close friends with the slain boys, Charlie and Scott, but wasn’t out with them the evening they were killed. Now Cody has started a podcast to see if he can get the real killer to come forward after all these years.
Jessie Paige, Charlie’s mother, was just a teenager when she had Charlie and has rebuilt a new life for herself with a husband and daughter. Cody is determined to interview Jessie for the podcast even though she is trying to leave the past behind. There is a small time period where Jessie was unaccounted for the night her son was murdered. Did the cops miss looking at Jessie as a suspect?
I’ve really liked Macmillan’s previous thrillers, but this one was just okay for me. There is enough here to keep you interested, but I felt like the ending fell flat.
