Lillian Wishart was murdered. Left behind is Alice, Lillian’s daughter.
But when Jonty’s long lost father resurfaces with a confession of his own, neither Alice or Tom are sure what to believe. Will Alice be able to find the truth and will Tom be able to let go of the past? Can broken friendships be repaired?
Somebody’s Crying is an engrossing story with an ending I never expected. I thought I had solved the case but McCarthy turns even the twists inside-out until you have no idea of the outcome! Brilliant writing. Brilliant story. Teenagers who like a clever mystery will love Somebody’s Crying.
