“Whatever you do, don’t read this in the dark, or on your own…” —Cara Hunter, author of Close to Home

“One of the most exciting, original thriller writers out there. I never miss one of his books.” —Simon Kernick

She’s chasing a killer. He’s watching her every move.

He hides in the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment. Each kill is calculated, planned and executed like clockwork.

Struggling to balance her personal and professional life, young DS Becca Vincent has landed the biggest case of her career—and she knows that it will make or break her. But she can’t catch the culprit alone. Together with facial recognition expert Joe Russell, she strives to get a lead on the elusive murderer, who is always one step ahead of them.

Time is not on their side. The body count is rising, and the attacks are striking closer and closer to home. Can Becca and Joe uncover the connection between the murders before the killer strikes the last name from his list?

My Thoughts

I had a really hard time deciding what to rate this book. Personally,  I found it hard to stay engaged with it and I came to the conclusion one of the reasons was the constant spinning between the 3 main characters, Becca, Joe, and the killer. Each had their own way of seeing the situation. Each having their own internal struggles that shaped their decisions and the scope of the storyline. It just got to be a bit much for me.

Otherwise, it was enjoyable to read and I’m sure many people will enjoy it more than I did. It read at a good pace. The characters were well developed. The book had a good storyline, yet the ending was a bit predictable with the foreshadowing that was in the book.

Overall, a good read. I didn’t love it & I didn’t dislike it. I would still recommend this book; it just wasn’t a favorite of mine.

About the Author

authorUntil recently, I worked as a freelance journalist based in London, England, and spent 25 years interviewing celebrities from the world of television, film, and music for national newspapers and magazines.

I wrote for publications including The Guardian’s Guide and Guardian Online; OK! Magazine; Total Film; Empire; Q; GT; The Independent; Star; Reveal; Company; Daily Star and News of the World’s Sunday Magazine.

My debut novel The Wronged Sons, was released in 2013 and in May 2015, I released my second book, Welcome To Wherever You Are.

In May 2017 came my third book, The One. It was chosen as the book of the month for BBC Radio 2’s Book Club.

The Wronged Sons was re-edited and re-released in July 2017 under a new title, When You Disappeared.

My fourth book, The Good Samaritan, was released in November 2017 and became a Number One hit world-wide

Thanks to my brilliant readers, I am now working full-time as a writer. My next book, Her Last Move, is released on November 8, 2018.  And book six is set to hit shelves in May 2019.
