Claire has survived an attack by a madman, an attack which has left her physically and emotionally scarred. She is too afraid to have a shower without her mum nearby and leaving the house is an ordeal for her as well, but despite all of this, she is determined to live her life as best she can. Then Paul comes into her life, a kind, gentle soul who seems to understand her. But does he really?
This was an intense story and what added to it was that it was also told from the POV of the Black Out Killer. The tension built and built and I was getting ready to just sit and read until the story finished, although I was almost afraid to turn the pages. Unfortunately, the ending was kind of flat? I am hoping there is a sequel to this book though, I would love to see what Claire does next, she really impressed me.
*Warning to animal lovers: there is a section of the book which has a graphic description of animal abuse. If I had known this, I probably wouldn't have read the book, it is something which I just can't handle.*
The vast majority of this book was really good and I would like to read something else by this author in the future.
This is the story of Claire and the brutal attack on her life by a serial killer dubbed as the black out killer.
The one difference between her and the killers other victims is that she survived.
10 years after her attack, it is happening again. Is this the work of a copy cat or is the killer that was thought to be dead still alive, and will he once again set his sights on Claire to finish what he started.
This was a gripping thriller that got under my skin. I will never feel the same about a blackout again!
This was a well written and structured thriller and just when you think you have figured it out, you really haven’t.
