How far would you go to protect your child?
Maggie’s daughter Penny is her whole world… and she’d do anything to protect her. So when Maggie wakes one night to find a strange woman in her home, she runs to lock herself in her bedroom with her child. But Maggie knows why she’s come…
Someone has been targeting mothers and offering them a choice: do as he says or their child disappears. This stranger in her home has until dawn to follow his orders… but Maggie too has the ‘choice’ to make. Can she put the pieces together to stop the cycle before her time is up?
An edge-of-your-seat thriller that will keep you guessing until the last page. Perfect for fans of Adam Croft and Tess Gerritsen.
I really enjoyed this one and was gripped from the first page! The writing style was spot on and the pace was great – I really liked the two lead female characters and I could sympathise with both of them at times and I went from supporting one then the other!
The book is really different and the plot is really good, very simple at times but oh so effective! The book poses the question – How far would you go to protect your child? I know how far I would go – do you?? 4 stars from me, an excellent star to the blog posts I have scheduled for 2018 and looking forward to Richard’s next book- he hasn’t let me down yet!!
