Happy Publication Day!!

Holly F*ck!! Author John Nicholl is one scary dude!! Man, could he write the words wrapped in darkness!! I was still shaking post reading the book. The way a killer’s mind, thoughts, action was written, it was breathtaking. It really was the creepiest thriller of this year, barring the viral pandemic.

A child stolen from home, warring parents, and DI Kasey at the helm with a psycho killer… What more could I ask for? I was simply freaked out…out of my mind.

My first book by this author, it took me many deep breaths to calm my racing heart. My pulse felt thready and sweat beaded down my brow. The story of a missing child always gets to me, and this one did in spades, especially when I knew what the killer thought.

Kesey and her team were brilliant especially partner Lewis. They provided support to each other as they sounded of their theories. The boss was one big SOB; I was quite amused when Kesey wanted to knee him on you know where. I was quite sedate, I wanted to bop him one in the head.

The urgency was felt uniformly down the pages, the writing was brilliant. The story was kept under a tight leash by the author so that the suspense could be felt in every page. I wanted to prod the cops to work faster. The race against time forced me to race through the story. I had to know – was the child safe? Alive?

A deep sigh…and one more as I wrote the review. Gawd, this story would stay with me for a long time. It was dark. It was disturbing. It was creepy. IT WAS FUCKING BRILLIANT

P. S. After reading the book, I checked out the author’s pic. Who knew such dark thoughts were running beneath such a placid visage. Appearances surely are deceptive.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Your worst nightmare is about to come true…
When Megan discovers that her young daughter is missing, she thinks that her ex-husband is to blame.

But was it someone else entirely?

Someone out for revenge? Someone with a grudge?

As DI Laura Kesey begins her investigation, she discovers that the case is infinitely more wicked than she could ever have imagined.

The clock is ticking.

The search is on.

But will Kesey find Lottie before it’s too late?

It’s every parent’s worst nightmare. The greater the evil, the deadlier the game.

  1. I adore your reviews, they pull me in and give me in as if we were having a lively and often animated conversation.

    1. This was too creepy. Had I been told to read it today, I would have refused as my mind is too stressed. This needed a different thriller mindset which I don’t have now
