Some crimes can’t be forgotten.
Psychologist Dr Jessie Flynn and DI Marilyn Simmons arrive at the Fuller’s home to find a suburban nightmare. A crime scene more disturbing than anything they have ever encountered.
Some killers can’t be stopped.
Jessie knows that this is no random act of violence. And if she can’t unlock the motivation behind the crime and shine a light into this killer’s mind, the Fullers won’t be the only family to die…

I absolutely loved this tense, addictive and frightening read. It’s going to be a hard book to review as I don’t want to give anything away.
Firstly I absolutely loved the main character Jessie who I warmed to instantly and enjoyed following throughout the book. She was a fascinating, highly original character and I liked that the author included some of her personal life into the story so the reader gets more of an idea about what she is really like. I think it’s fair to say she’s been through quite a lot and it was quite poignant to see how she was dealing with all of that on top of her job.
I found this to be quite a creepy read which had me at the edge of my seat at times. This is definitely not a book to read on your own at night as the scenes describing people being watched in their homes really got into my head and made me very paranoid. I had to get up and shut the curtains whilst reading as I kept thinking someone was watching me too.
Overall I really enjoyed this fast paced, creepy read which I sailed through in a couple of days. The many twists kept me guessing and I often found myself changing my mind about what was happening. The tension in the book is slowly increased until it becomes almost unbearable and I found myself wanting to keep reading to find out what happens but also wanting to stop as I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to know. If you are a fan of creepy, absorbing crime thrillers then this is definitely the book for you!
Huge thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Harper Collins for my copy of this book via Netgalley.
