No Turning Back by Tracy Buchanan
Thanks to Avon Books, I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.....
You’d kill to protect your child – wouldn’t you?
When radio presenter Anna Graves and her baby daughter, Joni are taking a walk on the beach and minding their own business, they are attacked by a crazed teenager, like any of us Anna reacts instinctively to protect her daughter.
But her life falls apart when the news starts to filter through that the schoolboy dies from his injuries. The police believe Anna’s story, until the autopsy results reveal something more sinister.
A frenzied media attack sends Anna into a spiral of self-doubt. Her friends, colleagues and family don't seem to want to know her as she's guilty in their eyes. But when she receives a chilling message from someone claiming to be the ‘Ophelia Killer’, responsible for a series of murders twenty years ago, her mental state is further threatened. Is Anna as innocent as she claims?? Is murder forgivable, if committed to save your child’s life??
I didn't like this book, I absolutely LOVED it. It was fantastic and was hooked from the first page. I was suspicious of every character throughout the book and I thought I'd it worked out but I was completely wrong. It was full of twists and turns. I loved the sociopath/killer character was absolutely brilliant, very well written and cleverly constructed. They were everything you'd expect with a sociopath - cold, calculating, manipulating and has no regard for anyone's feelings or who they hurt on their path of destruction. And THAT ending, well just say I wasn't expecting it and you won't either, you'll end up open mouthed in shock like me. This is the first book that I've read by Tracy and look forward to to seeing what's up next from Tracy (no pressure). I'd HIGHLY recommend this book so what are you waiting for??
No Turning Back is available on Kindle and in all good bookstores and is currently £1.99 on Kindle at the time of publication of this review.
