Official Summary: “A disastrous lie has life-changing consequences.

When Robert decides to impress at a job interview by making up a son, he discovers that maintaining the lie is far harder than he thought – so he invents a story that ‘Brodie’ has been kidnapped. After all, it’s not like they’re going to find the fake boy.

But a few weeks later, Robert receives a call to collect his nonexistent son from the police station, a boy who looks exactly like the picture he photoshopped…” – Goodreads

Review: This is a slow burner, don’t go into this story expecting answers partway through. It’s all about building the backstory, building the characters up. Building the tension to the point of; what the hell is going on? What is happening?

Did not expect that ending. I kind of knew that was where it was heading, but at the same time, it was still a surprise.
