Seventeen-year-old Tessa, dubbed a ‘Black-Eyed Susan’ by the media, became famous for being the only victim to survive the vicious attack of a serial killer. Her testimony helped to put a dangerous criminal behind bars – or so she thought.
Now, decades later the black-eyed susans planted outside Tessa’s bedroom window seem to be a message from a killer who should be safely in prison.
Haunted by fragmented memories of the night she was attacked and terrified for her own teenage daughter’s safety, can Tessa uncover the truth about the killer before it’s too late?
I was looking forward to getting stuck into this book as I had heard alot of hype about it being a really good thriller. I am sorry to say I was really disappointed with it. To begin with I thought ok this might be good but then I slowly lost interest, there was not any build up or pace to it. It just wasn’t for me but other people may like it.

Thank you to lovereading for sending me this book, this is my third book by Eva Ibbotson that I have read and this one is more of an enchanting love story. I managed to read this book in a day. Yes it was that good. There are a few likeable characters and a lovely hero called Guy Farne, there are funny moments but also a few teary moments.The way Eva adds so much description in to a place or scenery is just amazing as you really do feel like you are there.
