Description:

A page-turning psychological thriller with the gripping plot of GIRL ON A TRAIN and the chilling suspense of BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP …

 

There are three things no-one can prepare you for when your daughter is murdered:

 

– You are haunted by her memory day and night

 

– Even close friends can’t understand what you are going through.

 

– Only in a group with mothers of other victims can you find real comfort.

 

But as the bereaved parents gather to offer support in the wake of another killing, a crack appears in the group that threatens to rock their lives all over again.

 

Welcome to the club no one wants to join.

 

 

My View:

Compulsive reading!

Tammy Cohen writes crisp and pure psychological thrillers –the emphasis is on the story and the lives affected by a shocking event. Ms Cohen is a skilled writer; she writes a great narrative that engages and keeps the pages turning. Ms Cohen shows a great understanding of characterisations – her characters have a depth that makes them credible and allows the reader to empathise with or understand the motives of. Further the twist in plot that is revealed toward the end is a total surprise – you will not see this one coming, you will never guess this one at all – there are no breadcrumbs scattered along the way that lead you to this conclusion – there is just surprise, and sadness and understanding.

 

A great read! I will definitely be adding Ms Cohen to my list of must read authors.
