Are you living with your newborn’s killer?
Kirsty has suffered the worst trauma a living person can endure. The death of a new born child. Every day for her is a living battle. She is recovering slowly, but the brutal murder of a woman close to her home rocks her peaceful world.
Another woman is killed in the same way. Kirsty now makes a terrifying discovery – the murders of both these women point to her husband, Jake. He is the local doctor and knew both women well.
Piece by piece, the jigsaw falls into place, and Kirsty is spellbound as she realises what her husband is capable of. Then she finds the evidence that could utterly destroy her: Did Jake kill her baby son?
As her life unravels, Jake becomes more suspicious. Soon, Kirsty knows her life is in danger, and she has to act fast to make the police believe her. But by then, it might be too late…
I’m quite wrung out at the end of this novel – what a stunning read!
Kirsty Gunn is understandably devastated when her son is born with health issues, and then dies. Her world collapses in on her and she struggles just to get through each day. The killing of a woman in the local park where both she and her husband, Jake, go running shocks Kirsty to her core. When she realises that Jake was out at the time of the murder, a tremor of suspicion is aroused and a bit of tentative scrutiny fails to allow her to drop it. She is left with treacherous thoughts running through her mind. With no option but to run with her abhorrent idea, Kirsty begins to widen the scope of her probing and really doesn’t like where it’s leading – but by then there’s no going back.
This is a breathtaking read; with so much going on it really pays to keep your wits about you! The sadness of the beginning stayed with me throughout – I think anyone would be touched by Kirsty’s plight, especially in the light of her husband coping so well and moving on with his daily life. I really felt her pain, and this part of the story was extremely well explained. Then came the murder, the suspicion, and my heart pounded along with Kirsty’s on several occasions. Fast-paced and exciting, this is a gripping thriller and one which I found very difficult to lay down. Unpredictable and surprising, it’s a superb read and one I’m extremely happy to recommend.
