Newman, Ruth - 'The Company of Shadows'
Today it's been one year - Kate Benson is still just making it through each day, having dreams every night about her dead husband. David and Samantha, her friends are supportive and trying to get her interested in anything, even their holiday snaps. As Kate listlessly flips through them she sees in the background of a photograph taken in a restaurant, her husband Charlie.
Whilst her friends say they can see a likeness they say it cannot be him, but Kate is certain it is, and is ready to fly out that night. Her friends urge caution and eventually Charlie’s best friend Luke agrees to accompany her to Miami.
Despite being constantly told it could not possibly be him, Kate is determined to track down the man in that photograph. As she follows the trail she begins to question the circumstances of her husband’s death, and also the people she trusts, or can she trust them?
This is one of those books you cannot put down. A fascinating mystery and highly recommended.
