What the Bloggers thought:
Black Books Blog
This is a very dark psychological book, which kept me guessing all the way through as I couldn’t see how she was going to escape, if in fact she was going to. This book is full of action right from the very first page all through the book as we are transported from Scotland down to London and back again. I really enjoyed this book and will be on the look out for similar ones from Kevin in the future. Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews
The very first chapter drew me in …. the run for her life was a real nail-biter. Lots of action kept me riveted to the pages with no warning of what was to be the ultimate end game. The ending is a little ambiguous … leaving me to wonder if there will be a follow up story. Read more here
Joanna Larum’s Reviews
A very fast-paced book with some lovely description of the Scottish countryside, made all the more beautiful in contrast to the horrors which the killer commits. Not a book for the squeamish but one for those who enjoy psychological thrillers. Read more here

This is a very well written book that draws you in. I liked several of the characters and felt for their predicament. The psychology of Mr Mac leaves you with chills. This is a dark read in parts. A different type of psychological crime read, one where you know who the perpetrator is (or at least his pseudonym) but not how he is going to be caught. A highly enjoyable read. Read more here
Daisy White’s Wicked Words
Cleverly written, and I loved the character development. Josie made for a strong and likeable lead an the twists and turns kept me reading. This was an interesting take on a psychological thriller and I would read more from this author. Read more here
Whoa! This is one heck of a psychological thriller that has you questioning what you would do in Josie’s position. I love the cat and mouse chase, and the suspense had me on the edge of my seat. Read more here
