APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Young, vulnerable and blinded by love, Lou ran away to be with her teacher Mike. Years later, she longs to keep memories of her abuser in the past, but history is threatening to repeat itself. After five psychological thrillers, C.L. Taylor proves she’s a master of razor-sharp narrative and intensely vivid characterisation. Each chapter of The Fear is told through the eyes of Lou and several other women caught in Mike’s web; these skilful shifts in perspective highlight just how chilling Mike’s manipulation has been. This revenge-driven novel will keep you on the edge of your seat and thirsty for retribution.
