My review of Don’t Look Behind You by Mel Sherratt

She got into bed but sleep didn’t come easily.  Every creak in the house made her alert.  She was waiting for him to come and get her…

The small city of Stockleigh is in shock as three women are brutally attacked within days of each other. Are they random acts of violence or is there a link between the victims? For Detective Eden Berrisford, it’s her most chilling case yet.  The investigation leads Eden to cross paths with Carla, a woman trying to rebuild her life after her marriage to a cruel and abusive man ended in unimaginable tragedy. Her husband Ryan was imprisoned for his crimes but, now he’s out and coming for her.  As Eden starts to close in on the attacker, she also puts herself in grave danger. Can she stop him before he strikes again? And can Carla, terrified for her life, save herself – before the past wreaks a terrible revenge?

I loved this book and it grabbed me right from the start, it has a lot of twists and turns, the pace is great and I loved how the suspense built up to keep me guessing until the end, it is a real page turner.   The story covers some tough subjects really well and the way the whole thing was written drew me in and at times it really made me detest some of the characters.  I wouldn’t hesitate to give it 5 stars and looking forward to more of the same!!  It’s available to buy now so you can grab your copy straight away!
