As far as the world’s concerned, she’s already dead
Jessie Sloane is getting her life back on track after caring for her sick mother. But she’s stopped short when she discovers, that according to official records, ‘Jessie Sloane’ died seventeen years ago.
So why does she still feel in danger?
Thrown into turmoil and questioning everything she’s ever known, Jessie’s confusion is exacerbated by a relentless lack of sleep. Stuck in a waking nightmare and convinced she’s in danger, she can no longer tell what’s real and what she’s imagined.
The truth lies in the past…
Twenty years ago, another woman’s split-second decision may hold the key to Jessie’s secret history. Has her whole life been a lie? The truth will shock her to the core…if she lives long enough to discover it.

I give it - 5/5
My review - I am a huge fan of Mary. I adore all of her books and I was really excited to be asked to be part of the blog tour for her new book, When The Lights Go Out. This book did not disappoint. This has to be one of my favourites from her and that is saying something as I adore all of her books. This book is filled with suspense, it is gripping and you won't be able to put it down.
This book instantly had me gripped. What would you do if you found your social security information actually belonged to a girl who died 17 years ago? That is what our main character Jessie is dealing with. Her mother has recently just died and this is the first time she has ever been on her own after spending her years taking care of her mother and now, she has to find herself but, there may be danger lurking around the corner.
Also with Jessie's story we are give the story of Eden from 20 years ago. A story of a woman whose dream life is far from perfect and you will start to read the connections between these two women. With each bit of new information there is more twists thrown in. It will keep you guessing until the end, the mystery surrounding Jessie is captivating and will just want to carry on reading to find out what the truth is the connection between these two women.
I love the way Mary writes. The characters are filled with so much depth, the plot is filled with suspense, twists and instantly hooks you in.
Another brilliant story by Mary that has to be one of my favourite thrillers of this year. I can't talk about the plot too much as I think you need to just jump into this book and find out the truth for yourself!
I cannot wait to see what Mary writes next.
