So…where to start?? How about that hard hitting prologue! Bloody hell!! Talk about grabbing the readers attention!!
This prologue and another scene within the book may make for some uncomfortable reading as it deals with the issue of child abuse and what the young girl, Alice, has to endure. That said, it does play a vital role in our understanding of Alice and what shapes her personality. The chapters are a mixture of past and present, with past scenes describing Alice’s life and the hardship she has to endure due to her mothers choices in life. You can’t help have a great deal of sympathy for Alice but as the book progresses you start to see more of an evil streak that had me questioning my sympathy towards her. The scenes set in the present day have a definite creepy feel to them as one of the main characters (Abi) is being targeted by an unknown individual via text messages and phone calls. This was very well written as there were times I found myself questioning whether this was all happening or perhaps a figment of Abi’s imagination. I had to tell myself to take a step back a couple of times to take it all in and think about what was really happening. Very clever stuff!!
D.I Robyn Carter was an interesting character whom we learn a little bit about through her back story, which explains her reasons from taking a break from the police. I really liked the relationship between her and her P.I cousin Ross, along with her police colleagues when she eventually rejoins the police force. There are some suggestions (and examples) within the book that D.I Carter doesn’t always do things by the book, which I love, as it just gives that extra bit of edge to the investigation.
As the 2nd half of the book progresses we start to knit a lot of the clues together and see more of the investigation that Carter and her team are pursuing. There are a number of occasions where we are given various little clues that allow us to try and guess the identity of the killer/stalker. These were cleverly done and although there may have been the odd curve ball thrown in, they were all really well explained and brought together within the chapters from the killers perspective. As the investigation progresses you definitely start to see a level of trust between Carter and her team, which bodes well for future books in the series, and I can only see this going from strength to strength. The last quarter of the book really gallops along at a fantastic pace as events start to unfold, and I found myself willing the team to join all the dots and save the day….just in the nick of time!! I’ll leave you to read the book for yourself to find out if they managed this 😱!
Overall this was a cleverly woven tale of hurt, deception and revenge that highlights the effect childhood experiences can have on shaping an individual. This is definitely a series I want to read more on and also find out how Carter’s assimilation back into the police force continues.
It's definitely a book that you don't want to out down.
The writing is articulate and captivating and leads the reader through a maze of adventure.
I am hooked enough on this author (not to the point of stalking) to purchase book three within the next few weeks.

Seemed to take for ever to reach the end and then was disappointing.
