The Blurb

Charmer, liar, father… Killer.
Suzanne’s life changes forever the day she receives a visit from Rose Anderson, the woman who has been living with her estranged father, Don.

Don is dead, but Rose wants Suzanne to have his possessions – including a series of intimate diaries and a mysterious collection of photographs of women.

To Suzanne’s shock, one of the photos is of her friend Sophie, who died ten years ago in an unexplained and devastating fire.

But Don only met Sophie once, on an unsettling visit he paid Suzanne just days before Sophie’s death... So why did he have a picture of her?

Unable to let Sophie’s memory alone, Suzanne begins to dig into her father’s life. What horrors is she about to unearth in his journals? And who is it that’s out there, watching her every move?

My Thoughts

What it says about me im not sure but I love books about Serial Killers in both real life and fiction.
The character of Don is a grubby, dark, disturbing and possibly one of the most hideous of Killers.
I felt physically dirty reading him, I am no prude but found that the conversations Don had with his daughter about sex with her mother very hard to read. What makes this book even harder to read is knowing that there are real people like Don.

But what about the story?
Well its a well written steady paced story that will have your emotions in turmoil, not so much a rollercoaster of twists and turns but then with such well written characters it didnt need to be.
