The week is nearly over, we are nearly at the weekend! I hope you are all having a good one. This morning I have another thriller review for you…can you tell it’s one of my favourite genres?
Seventeen year old Hayley Reynolds is unwanted at home, and an outsider at school. Pushed away by her best friend Kirsten Green, she makes a deliberate, chilling decision – if Kirsten can’t belong to her, then she won’t belong to anyone….
DI Beverley Samuels has the body of a schoolgirl on her hands – a murder that brings back the hauntingly painful memories of the case she’s tried so desperately to forget.
There’s something deeply disturbing about this crime – and yet with little hard evidence it’s up to her to decide who she will believe….
Tightly-plotted, tense, and a finale with a heart-stooping twist – get ready for the biggest thriller of 2018. Fans of Claire Mackintosh, Laura Marshall, A. J. FInn and Alice Feeny won’t be disappointed!
What a main character! Hayley has got to be one of the most intense, twisted characters I have read about. The author has done a fantastic job of portraying her and this really makes the book great.
A slightly different twist to the story is that we know the killer from the start, but the story is all about finding out why and wondering whether she will do it again. Despite the obvious thriller ending not being possible – when you normally find out who the killer is – this book is still packed full of suspense, twists and turns.
I loved this original, dark and psychological thriller and would recommend it to fans of this style of book out there.
