Product Description

The perfect man... or a perfect stranger?

After eighteen months of grieving for her husband Bernie, killed in a horrific hit and run accident, Natalie Grey has found love with her husband’s best friend - Ed Cooper - and has moved herself and fifteen year old daughter, Scarlett, into his home. But Natalie begins to suspect Ed has a dark side - and even darker intentions.

Desperate to get her daughter to a place of safety, she and Scarlett move to a new home that holds secrets of its own. But has removing Scarlett from one potential threat placed her in far greater danger?

DCI Tom Douglas is also chasing the truth, as his investigation into the suicide of a teenage girl draws him ever closer to Natalie and Scarlett. But will he be too late to protect them from the peril they face, or from the truths that will tear their lives apart?

I chose this rating because it kept me enthralled and guessing all the way to the end. It made me understand how easy it is to manipulate young people having previously thought they were just stupid little self engrossed girls who thought they were so grown up. Thanks Rachel for your eye opening insight and fantastic ability to write so well and teach us about the evil around us.

WOW such a well crafted thriller. Great characters well written. Creepy, scary and very good.
Great to see Tom Douglas character grow further.
I would have given 5 stars - but one thread of the book ended too abruptly and dear Author are you letting a murderer go free?
Overall the book was satisfying and I will be buying more of RAs booke

The first Rachel Abbott novel I have read, and I enjoyed it very much. Natalie Gray is picking up the pieces of her life after her policeman husband was killed in a hit and run eighteen months earlier. She and her fifteen year old daughter Scarlett have moved in with Ed Cooper, her late husband's best friend and also a a policeman. Then Natalie discovers something about Ed that horrifies her, so she moves out with Scarlett to an apartment where it soon turns out something strange is going on. Meanwhile the police are investigating the possible suicide of another teenaged girl, together with the possibility that Natalie's husband's death was not an accident.
Abbott inexorably pulls all the threads together as the book drives towards its denouement. The characters are well drawn, including the investigating officers DI Tom Douglas and his partner Becky, who feature in the other novels in this series. However the novel works very well as a standalone and Abbott wisely does not make too much of their backstory in this one. other than giving Tom a bit of a romance which I felt the book could easily have done without. Best character for me was Scarlett, a really good portrait of a likeable teenager who still does dumb things that teenagers are prone to do because they think they have better judgment than any one else.
I highly recommend this book, unless you don't think you can read about grooming young girls for paedophiles.
Four and a half stars.

I have loved reading Rachel Abbott’s DCI Tom Douglas series, so far. The Sixth Window (book 6) was well-written and full of imagery. It was also intriguing and scary, while at the same time, it addressed a disturbing issue, abuse. The book was arguably the best in the series so far, in my opinion (although some readers may not like the absence of Douglas in many scenes).
The characters were a great strength in this book - DCI Tom Douglas and DI Becky Robinson were familiar, of course, but we saw more of their personalities this time, as they grew more even comfortable with each other. The secondary characters were very well-developed, too, including widow Natalie Grey and her daughter, Scarlett. They seemed to be in great danger, which triggered a move to temporary accommodation. Then there's those voices that Scarlett kept hearing. Her deceased father was a cop and she inherited many of his traits: strong willed, curious and gutsy, but she lacked his experience, discernment and caution. Natalie and Scarlett's relationship was realistically portrayed as the worry-worn single mother and the bored, wilful teenager.
The Sixth Window's plot was quick paced, gritty, complex, shocking and a well-thought-out one. The feel was menacing, sinister and disturbing. Just who the villain/villains are/were remained unclear as there were many twists, unforseen links and surprises that misdirected readers - simply delicious for mystery addicts. The climax was outstanding and had me bamboozled. I highly recommend The Sixth Window to fans of Rachel Abbott’s or readers who enjoy a well-told, suspenseful story.

This book makes you want to hire an armed bodyguard to follow your teenager around. Rachel Abbott is a brilliant author making 'Sixth Window' a cut above the average thriller.

Widow Natalie is finding happiness again after moving in with her late husband's friend Ed.....until the morning she suspects Ed is a pedophile. She grabs her teenage daughter and leaves, moving into an apartment believed to be haunted. In the background the police try to untangle the suicide of a teenager and the possibility that Natalie's husband was killed intentionally.

This book deals with sexual predators in such a convincing way it's absolutely terrifying. There are no stereotypical villains, only very real evil people. As with her previous books it's just not possible to go to bed until the book is finished.

Another bonus is each book's sub plot that maps the life journey of DCI Tom Douglas. Finally he gets a break in his personal life thanks to cheeky offsider Becky. I do have a negative though. Compared to the rest of this series 'Sixth Window' feels a little disjointed, as if another draft was needed to smooth some of the rough plot edges.

Once again a beautifully written mystery. I so much enjoy reading her books, the story is clear and well told. All the books are quite different and hard to put down so I look forward to the next one.
