__________

When single mum Joanna hears a rumour at the school gates, she never intends to pass it on. But one casual comment leads to another and now there's no going back . . .

Rumour has it that a notorious child killer is living under a new identity, in their sleepy little town of Flinstead-on-Sea.

Sally McGowan was just ten years old when she stabbed little Robbie Harris to death forty-eight years ago - no photos of her exist since her release as a young woman.

So who is the supposedly reformed killer who now lives among them? How dangerous can one rumour become? And how far will Joanna go to protect her loved ones from harm, when she realizes what it is she's unleashed?

Good

This was a good read. Took me a bit to get into it but glad I stuck with it. Great story

Predictable

I knew the twist after about 5 minutes of reading. Characters aren’t likeable and the child is unbelievable. A 6 year old having a nap in the day and they are ok with it? Sorry, but it just doesn’t happen. Dialogue was weird too, just very predictable and unbelievable. The story has potential but it doesn’t deliver.

Some good twists

Enjoyed listening to this. Narration is engaging and the story is interesting.
A little slow to get going but gripping towards the end and didn’t see the twists coming.
