That phone call changes everything and her life and sanity are pushed to the edge. This is a departure for Caroline Mitchell as she normally writes paranormal thrillers so it was nice to see a slight change. The stand out thing for me was the gritty realism in terms of how you felt for the character Rebecca.
Domestic violence is not a nice thing and to manage to convey that all encompassing fear is no easy feat, however this author has done it with ease.
Rebecca finds herself in the middle of a sick and twisted game where she has to decided who the victim is of a chosen crime, and the worst part is that she has less than a minute to decide. As each threat is given you can almost feel the spiral for Rebecca as she battles to maintain her normal composure. It rapidly descends into a situation where even as a reader you are questioning her sanity. The story is very fast paced but dark, terrifying and in short is the perfect psychological thriller. Mind games galore and a superbly written dialogue creates a need to turn pages faster than is possible.
Although I absolutely love the other series Caroline Mitchell writes, for me this is her genre. She has created a genius book that had all the perfect ingredients and I sincerely hope we see more where this came from.
Highly recommended by me! Synopsis: A perfect family hiding disturbing secrets. A killer who wants the truth to be told. A little girl in terrible danger. A teacher goes missing under suspicious circumstances and a man is murdered at a local reservoir. But as she starts to delve into them, her investigations lead her to Abigail, perfect wife and mother to beautiful little Izzy.
And why is she receiving threatening messages from an anonymous number? But as Robyn starts to inch closer to finding the killer, Izzy is abducted. Unless Robyn gets to the twisted individual in time, a little girl will die …. Robyn Carter is the main character in this hopefully series of books and she is due to go back to policing having taken a stint away from work due to a bereavement. She has spent her time away working for her Cousin Ross Private Detective agency. I really liked her Cousin and the relationship between them works well.
I wondered how that would work when she eventually makes it back to the police force but it was done in a away where Ross still featured in the story which I liked. As for Robyn, I liked her but felt that this first book just skims the surface and I am hoping we get to see a bit more in book 2. When a teacher goes missing it lands on Robyn as her first job back in the force.

This leads to another main character Abigail. On the surface she has it all, a wonderful husband Jackson and a daughter Izzy. However, when the story progresses it becomes clear its not as cut and dried as it first seemed. There were some moments in the book where I questioned whether I was reading the story correctly as it seemed impossible to imagine the reason for the things that were happening. I certainly enjoyed this and although a massive departure for Carol Wyer, a smart one! This was an engaging read and has a certain edge to it which I liked. For a first book in this genre it was excellent and if the books get any better I can see them being the type of books you just HAVE to read in one go.
Synopsis: When Millionaire playboy Sheridan Rivers is found dead at his luxurious hotel on the paradise island of Barbados, there are several suspects in the frame…. Was it time for her to make a stand? Employed for her sexual and organisational skills, could she have had her eyes on a bigger prize? What price will she pay to keep his silence? Is the time ripe for revenge? Four women, each with a cross to bear — all waiting for the perfect moment to exact their revenge.
Actually by chapter 3 all the mundane duties such as housework, dinner and a bath had gone out the window. What at first seemed like a character overload ended up being just perfect.
Sheridan Rivers is smack bang in the middle of every thread in this story. As the owner and Millionaire of the luxurious Hotels named Velvet he is every bit the arrogant idiot I expected him to be and some. Nikki is the party girl where a silly mistake gets her into an impossible situation. Heather on the other hand is a kind and gentle soul who is married to an amazing guy who is her world.
Phew…already I feel overloaded and I have already read this book! As each woman takes a thread to the story it gets more and more involved, dangerous and seems that nobody has any idea just how much double crossing is going on. At the halfway point I was completely and utterly enthralled, addicted and absolutely convinced that no amount of cajoling from my husband would move me from my sofa, book in hand. A lot of the story features the women, however the main event that this story centres around is a major boxing match that will be set in the Barbados hotel featuring Hatton Eden.
Hatton and his manager and trainer Fidge were excellent and added another layer of spice to the story.
By p. I called Mr. In these stories, Hanks gracefully reaches that typewriter-worthy level. Each episode will focus on a new true crime, with all the gory details, and a cocktail recipe to get you through. While we were waiting outside, I repeatedly asked the prosecutor to live up to his words and allow me just a telephone call, but he declined repeatedly.

Although in real life I did have to put the book down sadly I HAD to eat I read it in as near to one sitting as is humanly possible. If you are slightly prudish, then maybe not the book for you. Roll on the next book!
