Release date: January 28, 2020
No other author I’ve read before manages to write quite like C. J. Tudor does, she blends a classic thriller with just a hint of the supernatural and she freaking knocks it out of the park every single time for me. If I had to describe her books in one word it would definitely be creepy, there is always a sense of menace and something sinister at play in all of her books and this was no exception.
As much as this made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up there was also an emotional component here that raised the stakes even higher. You have a father at the end of his rope, his despair and desperation was a palpable thing and the combination of a twisty thriller, the emotional connection to the characters and the spooky unknown stuff at play made this one a true page turner. In a time when most thrillers feel stale and frankly bore me to death, this one was a breathe of fresh air for me. All of the authors books are solid reads and this one is too!
Overall rating: 4.5/5
