AND NOW HE’S COMING FOR HER.
Freddie Lloyd has served time for murder. Out at last, he’s on her trail. And this time, he won’t stop until he finds her.
BECAUSE NO MATTER HOW FAR YOU RUN, SOME SECRETS WILL ALWAYS CATCH UP WITH YOU…
I have enjoyed every Sharon Bolton book I have read before and this one was just as good. This is the story of Felicity, the reader is drawn in straight away with her job to go to a remote island in the Antarctic. Reading about this place and what Felicity has to do to prepare I found fascinating. Sharon has clearly done lots of research as the whole story is packed with some interesting information. Felicity wants to get as far away as possible as she is scared someone will find her but who? The second part of this book is nine months earlier and we learn Felicity’s back story and that is where the story leads onwards, the characters are bought to life and you can really imagine their thoughts and feelings. The plot was good and when you discover the twist it will blow your mind.
Just before dawn in the hills near the Scottish border, thirteen passengers on a hot-air balloon flight witness a brutal murder. Within the next hour, all but one of them will be dead.
Alone, scared and trusting no-one, she flees for her life, running to the one place she feels safe. But she’s seen the killer’s face, and he’s seen hers – and he won’t rest until he’s eliminated the last witness to his crime . . .
This is my second book by Sharon Bolton and I can honestly say Wow. Sharon’s books pull you in straight away and I love how some of the chapters are a paragraph but it leaves you feeling as though you must read on. This is definitely an author I want to read more of and I am looking forward to reading my next book of hers. If you like intense reads, this is the one for you.
Florence Lovelady’s career was made when she convicted coffin-maker Larry Glassbrook of a series of child murders 30 years ago. Like something from our worst nightmares the victims were buried…ALIVE.
Larry confessed to the crimes; it was an open and shut case. But now he’s dead, and events from the past start to repeat themselves.
Did she get it wrong all those years ago?
Or is there something much darker at play?
I had never read any of Sharon Bolton’s books before this one, I just didn’t think I would enjoy a bone chilling crime book but I really did. It made a bit of a change from my usual genre’s and I am definitely going to look out for more of her books. I have to admit it is a creepy read and I wouldn’t recommend reading before bed but there is tension, mystery and red herrings along the way that you will not want to put this book down till the very end. Brilliantly written in a way that it slightly leaves you on edge.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
