During the long summer holiday, the Lampton and Hallwright families gather in a large beach house belonging to Prime Minister David Hallwright and his wife Roza. The weather is perfect and outwardly all is well, but tension is brewing underneath the surface.

There is an unusual bond uniting the two families -- one that forced their meeting and sustains their relationship. And one that threatens to destroy it. You see, the Lamptons and Hallwrights share something, but it's something neither family is willing to give up. As the vacation progresses, it becomes increasingly clear that there are some important secrets that need to be kept quiet; secrets that could ruin them all if they became public; and secrets that might impinge their moral sensibilities . . .

In Soon, Charlotte Grimshaw takes readers on a journey through the world of privilege, power, and politics, exposing the dark side of human nature. This is an exhilarating and thought-provoking novel, in the vein of The Dinner and Gone Girl, that questions how far people will go to protect themselves and all they hold dear.

This story of a politician, his family and friends paints a portrait of these people in the tawdry world of politics. There is only one redeeming character. The descriptions of the New Zealand setting are great, but overall the book is disappointing after having read Grimshaw's "Singularity". The story told to a child about "Soon" - a dwarf - is only distracting.

Great read. Interesting and complicated plot twists keep the reader on their toes. This is not for the weak. Gripping and suspenseful. This author brings a different and interesting story telling style.

I completely agree with the previous comment. I found this book very disappointing.
