So onto the review…… this book is definitely not for the faint hearted!! After reading the write up that Rachel sent me I knew I’d love this book and that’s before I’ve even checked out her writing style.

That first chapter OMG! Don’t worry no spoiler but it had me hooked and I’m not just saying that….. this book seemed to have it all, twists, turns and nutter of a psycho that I never want to meet! The things this guy does to his victims is beyond belief but it does make it a heart racing read…… which I really enjoy, wow now I sound like the nut job!!

Rachel’s style of writing is what I love, the detail and emotion that filled those pages is what had me gripped. Loved the shorter chapters too, im a ‘read to the next chapter’ reader but Rachel has the nack of turning it from 1 chapter to 5 before i reluctantly HAD to put my kindle down…… why do we even need sleep?! I even have my next book by her already lined up.

If you enjoy a thriller with punch then this is the book and author for you, I’m expecting great things from this ‘New to me’ author…… a very well deserved 4 golden apples!
