Blurb; On the surface, Lara Chorley and Ruth Hull have nothing in common, other than their infatuation with Michael Vokey. Each is writing to a sadistic inmate, sharing her secrets, whispering her worst fears, craving his attention.
DI Marnie Rome understands obsession. She’s finding it hard to give up her own addiction to a dangerous man: her foster brother, Stephen Keele. She wasn’t able to save her parents from Stephen. She lives with that guilt every day.
As the hunt for Vokey gathers pace, Marnie fears one of the women may have found him – and is about to pay the ultimate price.
My Review; Oh My. This book took over me, it was all I could think about until I could finish it. Clever. Very clever. A brilliant story. This is the first book I have read by Sarah Hilary and it won’t be my last, very impressed… Well and truelly hooked and obsessed with this book!
Well written, fast paced and with short chapters you will lose yourself in this story. I loved the team, especially DI Marnie Rome. With a huge outcome I didn’t expect at all. Just made it all a brilliant read. Enjoyed every minute of it. Not a bad word to say for this story. I cannot wait to dive into all the other books by Sarah after this belter.
A well deserved five stars from myself! This book messes with the readers head… Who’s assumptions are correct? Who’s telling the truth? Who’s lying? You will find as the reader you have to piece everything together for yourself just like DI Marnie has too but will you be correct? Loved it. Kept me thinking and on edge.
