Product Description

Product Description

A chilling psychological thriller for fans of Gillian Flynn, Nicci French, Sophie Hannah, S.J. Watson and Elizabeth Haynes, that will haunt you long after you’ve finished reading...

In this dark psychological thriller, Olivia Taylor believes she has suffered the worst life can throw at her after the break-up of her marriage. Full of hope, she starts a new life with her nine-year-old daughter, Ellie, only to find the worst is yet to come.

Meeting Michael Crossman is the beginning of an unspeakable nightmare for Olivia and her world slowly unravels.

It is only through the re-telling of her story that we piece together what has led her to become a mere shadow of the woman she once was.

More About the Author

Kathryn is always seeking new challenges and has had a wide and varied career before writing her first novel. After gaining a BA Honours Degree in Media Arts with English Literature, she worked in human resources and management training. But it wasn't long before her passion for literature led her to train as a teacher and study for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. She then spent six years teaching secondary school English; a job she believes was invaluable to her writing career.

Kathryn now devotes all her time to writing and is currently working on her third novel.

Having always been an avid reader, Kathryn believes in the power of words to entertain, teach and transform lives. Now that she has achieved the dream she has held onto since childhood - to write a full-length novel - her new goal is to be as successful as the bestselling authors she admires. She firmly believes anything is possible if you work hard enough and never give up!

Kathryn lives in Guildford, Surrey with her husband and two cats, Aphrodite and Isis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book! 4 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really impressed with this book. I didn't know what to expect but it is beautifully written and the writer skilfully depicts Olivia's turmoil. I felt I was living through the nightmare with her. All I look for in a book is to be able to get lost in the story and this book did not disappoint. I have already leant it to a friend who is now five chapters in and just as hooked as I was!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great read! 4 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really had sleepless nights because I could not put this book down, thinking I'll read just one more chapter, then another, then another. I really didn't want to get to the end but was desperate to find out what had happened to Olivia to turn her life upside down. The author brought the characters to life, I really felt like I knew them and the devastating ending was a complete surprise. Roll on the next book from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning debut novel! 1 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An absolutely amazing first novel! The reader is drawn into the story right from the beginning and the book becomes impossible to put down. The characters are so real and their emotions so well described that one feels one knows all about them, yet the end comes as a complete shock! It is very well written and the story develops at just the right pace. It will take me a long time to forget this gripping tale of what human beings can do to each other! Definitely a `must read' not only for those who like psychological thrillers but also for those who enjoy reading a well-written book!
