Summary

One warm spring evening, five teenagers meet in a local park. Only four will come out alive.

Six months after the stabbing of 15-year-old Deanna Barker, someone is coming after the teenagers of Stockleigh as a spate of vicious assaults rocks this small community. Revenge for Deanna? Or something more?

Detective Eden Berrisford is locked into a race against time to catch the twisted individual behind the attacks - but when her own niece, Jess Mountford, goes missing, the case gets personal.

With the kidnapper threatening Jess' life, can Eden bring back her niece to safety? Or will the people of Stockleigh be forced to mourn another daughter?

A terrifying, compelling police procedural which will thrill fans of Angela Marsons, The Teacher, and Rachel Abbott.

excellent novel by Mel Sherratt, as ever. Twists and sub plots, great read for anyone.

Very disappointing

I'm always on the lookout for the start of a good new series and thought this might be one. It's not.
