A perfect family hiding disturbing secrets. A killer who wants the truth to be told.
This is the first book in the DI Robyn Carter series from Carol Wyer.
Just when I’m ready to give up on thrillers for a bit along comes Carol Wyer with this edge of your seat non-stop suspense and terror!
Told from three different points of view, DI Robyn Carter, who has just returned to her job after losing the man she loved as well as their baby, Alice, the little girl who suffered tremendous trauma in the house of the man her mother was engaged to, and Abigail, who is being tormented and taunted about her own past.
Three different women and the different ways in which they handle the trauma they have suffered. Death, rape, murder, and so many secrets.
The characters are all complex and you feel so much empathy for them. Robyn is filling her life with work and working out to avoid the feelings of loss and guilt she carries. Trying to find out who this missing man is and how he is connected to another murder. Robyn is a great character but then they really all were.
Alice, poor little girl whose own mother blamed her for ruining her life, is looking for revenge. It’s what she is living for. Getting even with the people who she blames for ruining her life and her mothers.
Abigail has a new baby, an adoring husband and a few friends but she is happy. Until it becomes clear that someone doesn’t want her to have any of that. Someone wants her life.
This was a really good serial killer novel. One of those edge of your seat, bite your fingernails and lock the doors novels. And I loved every horrifying moment of it! Only one question….when is the next one?
Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for this one!
