Magnificent! Jackson has played a blinder. A heart-thumping, twisting rollercoaster of a read - literally broke a nail I was gripping it so hard! * Angela Clarke, author of Trust Me * 'A smart, filthy, twisty-turny whodunnit.' * Glamour Magazine * 'hugely talented Corrie Jackson' * Red Magazine * The Perfect Victim is a dark, dirty and all round fabulous read * The Sun * THE PERFECT VICTIM by CORRIE JACKSON has us questioning how well we really know our friends * Good Housekeeping * 'A perfectly explosive thriller from Corrie Jackson' * Hello magazine * An explosive, thrilling tale which will keep you on the edge of your seat * OK Magazine * If you like dark and twisted, The Perfect Victim is a must read. This one will have you turning the pages far into the early hours. You have been warned. Sophie Kent is far from perfect, but she's tough and tenacious and she gets the job done. She definitely has a new fan here * J. S. Carol * With a twisty plot and vivid characters you feel you know, I raced through this * Claire McGowan * 'Sophie Kent returns, bringing a fresh take on catching killers' * Weekend Sport * Sharp, tense and darkly humorous, The Perfect Victim packs a huge emotional punch. I loved trying to unravel the mysteries of this smart thriller, and the protagonist, Sophie Kent, is someone I'd love to have as a real life friend. Corrie Jackson is definitely one to watch * Susi Holliday, author of The Deaths of December * One of those books that you look forward to picking up: great story, great characters - thoroughly enjoyed it. A great book to get your teeth into * Lee Weeks * Blimey I think Corrie Jackson may be the new queen of the twist in crime fiction, The Perfect Victim was pure drama and just when you thought you'd grasped the truth you got sent down another dastardly dark alley (figuratively and literally) and just ended up turned around some more. Excellent plotting . . . beautifully written HIGHLY addictive and genuinely unpredictable. Full of heart, darkly disturbing, thought provoking and honestly authentic * Liz Loves Books * This story had so many twists and turns, it almost made me dizzy. It left me wondering how well I really know my own friends * For The Love Of Books * Gripping . . . crime with a side order of chic * Glamour on BREAKING DEAD * Pacy, intelligent, a bang-on thriller. A rocking read . . . * Liz Loves Books on BREAKING DEAD * Original, amazingly written and tense * Sun on BREAKING DEAD * As compelling as The Cuckoo's Calling * The Crime Warp on BREAKING DEAD * I liked that there are many twists and turns in this whodunit * Echoes in an Empty Room * The final twist and ending was unpredictable. I thought the plot-line was obvious. I knew the identity of the villain and the motives, or so I thought. However, I couldn't have been more wrong. The reveal was shocking. I mean, it just never crossed my mind. I definitely think that it was perfect for this book. * A Haven for Book Lovers * Sophie is proving to be an irresistible leading lady ... Written with Jackson's distinctive narrative energy, that special brand of journalistic cynical humour, and lashings of tension and emotional intensity, The Perfect Victim is a dark and addictive page-turner and ensures that crime fans will be coming back for more! * Lancashire Evening Post * As soon as I started it I knew it was going to be fantastic read. There were so many twists and turns to this and the big reveal was just brilliant. There are so many interesting themes in this book, re-invention, domestic abuse, secrets, cults and more, that it would make a fantastic book club read. I thoroughly recommend this series if you enjoy crime reads, especially if you want to be kept guessing, as both books have done to me * Nudge Books * The Perfect Victim is full of energy and is a fantastically gritty read, I like Sophie Kent a lot, I think she's a refreshing female lead character and I like Jackson's unflinching use of dialogue and language. It is a page turner, it is compelling, it is addictive and it is well worth reading. This is a great sequel and this is an exciting new series in Crime Fiction * Bibliomaniac * I LOVE this book. Compelling, breath-taking and genuinely tension-inducing, this is a thriller that will keep you awake into the small hours to read 'just one more chapter' * Buried Under Books * I started reading this book one evening and was unable to put it down until the I reached the final page... Packed with great characters, particularly the ballsy lead with a great plot and strong dialogue, 'The Perfect Victim' is a twisty tale that I genuinely enjoyed * Handwritten Girl * As with Breaking Dead, I was hooked from the very first page. There seems to be an awful lot going on and more than one plot strand but Corrie Jackson weaves them together skillfully over the course of the story and by the end, having stumbled through more twists and turns than the first book, she leads you to a most unexpected conclusion, which most people won't even have thought about.The Perfect Victim doesn't let up from start to finish, there's an energy about Corrie Jackson's writing that compels you to keep turning the pages and her characters are completely engaging, although not always likable, which makes them all the more human. It's a fantastic sequel to Breaking Dead and I have only one request. Sophie Kent book three, please! * Bookish Outsider * 'The Perfect Victim is a brilliantly plotted, multilayered and dark crime thriller with so many twists and turns that you are left adrenalised. Every question followed by every reveal is so brilliantly executed that I couldn't bare to put this book down at any point desperate to read on! Shocking, gripping and fast paced right up until it's shocking reveal The Perfect Victim is the epitome of a great psychological thriller. If you are a fan of this genre like me you will be blown away by this title...' * Not Left on the Shelf * 'Corrie Jackson fast catching up to the queen of the twisty tale Sophie Hannah with her brilliantly unpredictable "The Perfect Victim"' * Liz Loves Books * The Perfect Victim is a very clever book and is one that I can easily see being transferred to the big screen. It is complex yet is so skilfully-written that it never once feels confusing. Definitely one of my favourite books of 2017 and one that I would highly recommend! * Go Buy The Book * The brilliance of this book is the way all the main characters are torn apart bit by bit. All the way through this book I thought I knew who the murderer was but such is the brilliance of the writing that I kept changing my mind and when all is eventually revealed it is an absolutely brilliant twist. I also cannot wait to read more of this author, she is amazing and long may she continue writing * Breakaway Reviewers * I think I've found a new favourite crime writer! Corrie Jackson has created not only a fantastic female protagonist but the perfect mix of convincing crime fiction combined with a touch of drama and plenty of mystery. Her writing is brilliant, with plenty of twists which take you by surprise just when you think you've got it all figured out * Snazzy Books * This is a pacey novel set very much in today's world. A page turner: clever, brisk with a plot that drives forward * Frost Magazine * I also cannot wait to read more of this author, she is amazing and long may she continue writing * Breakaway Reviewers * Corrie Jackson is another writer interested in the psychological damage that can be wrought by those who never wonder about the effects of their behaviour on other people...highly entertaining as it is. * Book Oxygen * The book is deliciously complex, gritty and dark. Jackson uses her own experience as a journalist to show a newsroom under pressure. It is written beautifully and with so much energy - the characters leap off the page. It gallops to a good and surprising resolution * Promoting Crime *

Every character seems to be miserable and unhappy. Sophie herself reckless, wilful, disobedient. The product of rich parents. A recently deceased brother, an alcoholic mother and a father that doesn't care. Then there are Charlie and Emily, a really messed up pair of individuals. Emily; clingy, self harms, deluded and a fantasist. Charlie; too fond of alcohol, with a tendency to spiral out of control and from a catastrophic childhood. Then there are all the other characters. Sophie's newspaper colleagues and the police. All seen to have broken lives.
It was quite a disturbing story. Nothing light hearted anywhere. No banter or witty one liners. I did finish it, but with difficulty.
