I have been trying to get out of the rut I was in, reading the same authors and genres over and over, but as crime thrillers are pretty much my favourite trying an author who was new to me seemed reasonable.

As far as Liz Janssen was concerned her marriage to Peter had been over for a long time, and the couple had separated. When she finds her ex-husband to be dead, ruled to be a case of suicide, she doesn't feel to blame. However their son Will feels his beloved father's death is down to her demand for a divorce and becomes increasingly angry at her. Fuelling his anger are his father's friends, members of a satanic cult, who recruit him in place of his dad.

Sheriff Doug McBride has returned to his home town of Branville with ghosts to lay to rest. He becomes close to Liz having become involved in the investigation into Peter's death. He is also trying to figure out whether a series of strange events in the town are connected. However in trying to save her son Liz feels unable to trust Doug and the story moves to a dramatic climax.

The story is primarily told from Liz and Doug's viewpoints. I thought she was a strong character, I felt able to empathise with her as a mum desperate to save her relationship with her son. I found him likeable and the supporting characters were well written. Although I can't put a finger on exactly why this book generally reminded me of the style of Karin Slaughter, one of my "stuck in a rut" favourites.

Having finished the book I am slightly bemused by the note that some content may be disturbing. I didn't find anything detailed that was worse than you might find in other books of the same style, so I hope this wouldn't put anyone off. I will certainly be taking a look at other titles by Karen Fenech.

When Liz Janssen finds her estranged husband, Peter, dead of an apparent suicide, her seventeen-year-old son, Will, blames her for his father's death. Angry and desperate to hold onto a connection with his father, Will moves out of his mother's home and into Peter's. Once there, he soon learns his father was a member of a satanic cult, a cult determined to avenge Peter's death.

Concerned by her son's behavior, Liz finds comfort in the arms of the town's new sheriff, Doug McBride. But when Liz realizes Will has been recruited by the murderous cult, she knows she must hide the information from Doug. Can Liz save her son from the cult's brainwashing? Or will she end up paying for Peter's death with her own life?

Karen Fenech has crafted a superbly intricate tale of greed, power, and murder. She expertly blends well-defined characters and a unique plot into a suspenseful and believable story that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning. Highly recommended!

This is great story-telling from Fenech. Downloaded it after hearing someone say best-selling crime writer Sam Millar gave it great praise. A very fast read which will keep you up all night.

I bought this book mainly because of the positive reviews and the warning about disturbing content. I was expecting a truly terrifying experience. What I got was the most painfully tedious books to read I have ever come across. Maybe I am the odd one out with this due to everyone else who reviews it being very positive. The story in my opinion was very drawn out and failed to build any tension. I kept on hoping that the story would pick up the further I got into it but I was sorely disappointed. The plot was about as complex as a Mr.Men book. It got so bad that I had predicted the ending about 60% of the way through. Okay so maybe I am being too harsh but this book is not as advertised at all. The only thing that I can breathe a sigh of relief for is that I paid less than a pound for it; although I the free books I have been downloading have been a lot better...

Great read at a bargain price. Bought this as one of a few for reading on holiday and wasn't disappointed in the least.
Story kept my attention. Thoroughly enjoyed this book so glad I went with reviews and tried it. Would definitely recommend it. Had never read anything with a satanic side to it so can't compare in that respect but it kept me interested with twists and turns culminating in killer I didn't expect. Usually go for James Patterson or Alex Gray books so had never read a Karen Fenech book before but will try another after this one.

From the description of this book, I thought I would enjoy it more than I did. But trying to mix romance and suspense didn't work - at least not for me. I felt that neither aspect was convincing, the plot was superficial and the ending predictable. Everything felt a bit hurried: developments both in the relationship between the two main characters and in the recruitment of the son to satanism were unbelievably rapid, and there was not much depth to any of the protagonists.

I also think a prologue should be just that - something that precedes the main story - and not repeated halfway through the book word-for-word.

OK for a quick, uncomplicated read on the beach, but could do with a bit more substance.

You know when there's a horror film and the teenage girl heads into the house, containing the chainsaw murderer, despite the power being off? Well there were loads of points in this book where you think "why would he/she do that?"

The writing doesn't flow very well and, while it's not a page turner, it was an ok read. But I won't be reading it again.

Without giving the plot away I don't understand (other than to prolong the book) why Doug didn't cotton on to what was going on earlier when he had the mutilated fawn and vandalised grave.

And I didn't think it was realistic that Liz wouldn't tell him what her son was up to considering "how in love she was with him".

Certainly not an encouragement to try the author again, but not quite the worst i've read.
