DI Fisher is forced to take some leave from the force due to stress, she is haunted by the murder of a young woman who. had come to the police for help, in fear for her life from a man obsessed with her, she can’t let this go and continues her own investigation into the murder.
This book is a fast moving tale of obsessive and twisted love, mind control and psychological terror are at the forefront throughout the book, I found myself unable to put this book down and got wrapped up in the terror that Isobel faced – it shows the hold that an abuser can have over their victim even when you think they can’t hurt them anymore.
The characters enthralled me – frustration at their actions, willing them to do something different, fear for their lives and heart in my mouth as the story unfolded. By the end of the book I felt I was losing my mind.
Superb twists throughout the book, throwing you off the scent at every step – you really don’t know if you are coming or going…but believe me you won’t want to miss a page! well deserved 4 stars from me!
