All The Hidden Truths by Claire Askew @OneNightStanzas Contemporary Fiction #NetGalley #AllTheHiddenTruths #FridayReads

Author: Claire Askew

Published: August 2018 by Hodder & Stoughton

Category: Contemporary Fiction, Crime, Murder, Mystery, Book Review

The three main characters are introduced individually, and the story is told from the perspective of each of them.
