The Couple of no 9 By Claire Douglas

The Couple of no 9 By Claire Douglas


When pregnant Saffron Cutler moves into 9 Skelton Place with boyfriend Tom and sets about renovations the last thing she expects is builders uncovering a body – two bodies, in fact.


Forensics indicate the bodies have been buried at least thirty years. Nothing Saffy need worry herself over. Until the police launch a murder investigation and ask to speak to the cottage’s former owner – her grandmother, Rose.


Rose is in a care home and Alzheimer’s means her memory is increasingly confused. She can’t help the police but it is clear she remembers something.


As Rose’s fragmented memories resurface, and the police dig ever deeper, Saffy fears she and the cottage are being watched.

What happened thirty years ago?

Why did no one miss the victims?

What part did her grandmother play?

And is Saffy now in danger?

My Thoughts:

If you are after a fantastic thriller, this is the one for you. It is a heart pounding and intensely creepy story. You never know what is going to happen in each chapter. I love Claire’s writing and how on edge she makes the reader feel, she is a very good writer and I have loved all of her previous books. Some of the chapters leave you on a cliff hanger so you have to read to find out more. The story is all about the past and present. Saffy and her husband have moved into her grandmother’s house, whilst having the garden sorted out, the workmen make a shocking discovery and no one’s life will ever be the same. Who is in danger? and will Saffy be able to find out what really happened back then. This is such a great read and I cannot wait to read Claire’s next book.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
