Claire McGowan – What You Did


A vicious assault. A devastating accusation. Who should she trust, her husband or her best friend?

It was supposed to be the perfect reunion: six university friends together again after twenty years. Host Ali finally has the life she always wanted, a career she can be proud of and a wonderful family with her college boyfriend, now husband. But that night her best friend makes an accusation so shocking that nothing will ever be the same again.

When Karen staggers in from the garden, bleeding and traumatised, she claims that she has been assaulted – by Alis husband, Mike. Ali must make a split-second decision: who should she believe? Her horrified husband, or her best friend? With Mike offering a very different version of events, Ali knows one of them is lying – but which? And why?

When the ensuing chaos forces her to re-examine the golden era the group shared at university, Ali realizes there are darker memories too. Memories that have lain dormant for decades. Memories someone would kill to protect.

User Review:

thoroughfare subjective

You and your husband plan a party in your home for your best college buddies 25 years later, and no one could have prepared you for what comes next, or what is revealed. I thought the book was okay for what it was. I was hoping for a better kindle first choice. The premise of the book sounded really interesting as described. I know plenty of people will love this book but for me it was just okay. I didnt real like any of the characters. The narrator’s heavy English accent I found to be quite distracting. The writing is not too bad but this is not a psychological thriller. It’s a boring soap opera with the usual lies, betrayals, cheating, drinking until passed out, annoying children, rape, and a 25 year old murder. By process of elimination I guessed the rapist and murderer halfway through the book. I wouldn’t recommend this book.
