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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
