About the Author
Tammy Cohen is the author of six psychological thrillers, the latest of which is Stop At Nothing. She is fascinated by the darker side of human psychology. Her books explore how 'ordinary' people react when pushed into a corner, the parts of ourselves we hide from the world - and from ourselves. Previously she also wrote three commercial women's fiction novels as Tamar Cohen debuting with The Mistress's Revenge which was translated all round the world. In addition, she has written three historical novels under the pseudonym of Rachel Rhys. The first, Dangerous Crossing, was a Richard & Judy book club pick in Autumn 2017. She is a member of the Killer Women crime writing collective and lives in North London with her partner and three (allegedly) grown up children and her highly neurotic rescue dog.

Tess then fixates on one of men in the lineup, convinced he is the attacker. She takes matters into her own hands and harasses him by email, visiting his address and club where he DJs. Frances becomes more important to Em and Tess and joins in some of the harassment.
Tess is a drama queen who blames the menopause and lack of sleep for some of her actions.
The first half of the book is excellent, with the tension ramped up to high levels. It reminded me Elizabeth Haynes first book, where tiny very ordinary things kept the tension taut so your heart was in your mouth. Sadly the second half of the book was more unbelievable and the real villain was no surprise at all. I had guessed it early on. The ending was limp and disappointing.
Tammy Cohen is a good writer but this book isn’t up there with her best.
It is so easy to see how this type of slowly escalating situation can happen, especially with the reliance on social media, emails and texts, until it gets out of control.
I was hooked right from the intense opening when Tess’s daughter, Emma, is at the police station after the police have called her in to try and identify her attacker. I really connected with Tess and her quest to get justice for Emma. It did feel like she was at the end of a tether as she attempted to try and make people listen. It seemed that people were trying to push her back all the time. There were times when I wanted someone to step in and help Tess, and I feared what was going to happen to her as she continued to try and get justice. And there were times when I wanted her to stop, to prevent anything bad happening to her and her family.
Tammy Cohen’s writing is very easy to get into. She always creates hugely engaging characters. The emotion in Tammy’s characters comes through very strongly in this book, especially in Tess as she is still struggling to come to terms with what has happened to her daughter. She is a character who I really felt for. I wanted her to get justice for her daughter. But there is also something else that has happened. She has an estranged relationship with her eldest daughter, and it is clear that something has happened in their past that has caused a rift between them. I was really interested in this part of the plot, and I wanted to know what had happened between them to cause this strain in their relationship.
There is a lot of tension in this book as Tess continues to investigate what happened to her daughter, and as she becomes infatuated with a man who she believes is the person responsible for what happened. Now, this was a part of the story which I was never quite sure about, and Tammy Cohen kept me on my toes as I kept wondering if this person was the culprit. I couldn’t believe some of the lengths that Tess was going to here, to try and bring this person to justice.
This is a book that certainly, for me, kept its secrets under wraps until the final pages. There’s a very sinister tone that made me think that all was not quite as it seems. There are some very dark characters who will keep you hooked and intrigued. Stop at Nothing is another top psychological thriller by Tammy Cohen. I can’t wait to read what she writes next.
The aftermath of the attack is portrayed strongly in the narrative, and the characters are highly relatable. There are lots of twists and turns in the plot, and I was surprised when it all started to unravel. I really liked the way the identity of the narrator in the prologue was revealed in chapters, until we finally met them.
I’ve read many books by Tammy Cohen, and highly recommend this latest book, as well as her previous work.
