‘He has a gun.’ ‘Who? Tell me, where are you? Who has a gun?’ ‘I love you, Mum.’’ An ordinary school day in March, snowflakes falling, classroom freezing, kids squealing with delight, locker-doors slamming. Then the shooting started. No-one dared take one breath… He’s holding a gun to your child’s head. One wrong answer and he says he’ll shoot. This morning you waved goodbye to your child. What would you have said if you’d known it might be the last time?

Customer Reviews

Powerful and emotional storytelling.

 on 21 June 2014
By Vicuña
The pace and tension from the opening pages of this book are relentless. The multiple viewpoint narrative keeps the pace and plotting tight and take the reader right into the heart of each character and as the story and secrets unfold.

Terrifically well told tale

 on 13 June 2014
By Aurora
Oh my – this is definitely a “hold your breath” book. So many things worked together to create the ambience of the story. The stomach churning dread and paralysing fear of knowing those you love are in a perilous situation and there is nothing you can do about it, the wishing that the police would get on and DO something, even though deep down, logic tells you that they can’t go in all guns blazing, that they must play a waiting game is well laid out. That there is so much else going on in the story at the same time adds to the overall effect – a mother desperately injured but praying that her children will come out of this situation in one piece, the reader can feel her frustration that she cannot get out of her hospital bed and go to her children, all compounded by the mind numbing effects of the pain medication which she needs. Even the weather adds to the atmosphere of the book, bleak and dense, obstructing free movement – just as the perpetrator is doing with his hostages. We are with the police in their search for the identity of the man in the school, but every time they think they have an answer, they are confounded. One suspect is dead and another has fallen victim to the weather. The thick snow obscures the vision of those looking on as a potential tragedy unfolds in front of them, and all the layers of the story serve to make the identification of the perpetrator and a way of resolving the situation much more difficult.

I Really Enjoyed This

 on 13 June 2014
By Lynda Kelly
A sign of a good book for me is when I stay awake reading into the early hours. I finished this around 2am today…….’nuff said. I really enjoyed it and I’ve bought another by her now on the back of my liking this one so much.

Don’t pass this one by

 on 30 June 2014
By Flatfield
Oh my goodness, what a spectacular read this was. The multiple points of view worked so well intertwining every characters story and giving insights into family histories. The pace was kept constant and despite working out the gunman’s identity myself it didn’t spoil my enjoyment off this wonderfully written book. The final chapter is a tearjerker and the perfect climax to a beautifully crafted story. Mrs Oliver has to be one of the greatest heroines in modern literature. If you only read one book this year, make it this one.

Brilliant second novel!

 on 16 June 2013
By Books Are My Vice
Wow, this book has really lived up to and beyond my expectations of Heather Gudenkauf’s second novel. I came across her first, The Weight of Silence, by accident and loved it, this one has been equally brilliant. They are structured similarly to Jodi Picoult’s work in that the narrative is by different characters in the story, chapter by chapter, but unlike Jodi’s books which centre on moral issues (largely) Heather writes more on major events and ripple effects. She writes very engagingly and both books have been major page turners. I eagerly await MORE from this fantastic author 🙂 A happy, happy find indeed.

One Breath Away

 on 16 July 2014
By Ronnie
Smashing book, told by all the characters as if speaking in the first person which, I think, added to the suspense of the story. 1st time I read anything by this author, and enjoyed it so much I went on to get .” The weight of Silence ” also written in the same style. I Hadn’t enjoyed a book so much in a long time so really hoped that The Weight of Silence would be equally as good. Wasn’t disappointed. I got both as Free kindle books but would happily pay for more of authors work.
