Well written, no real surprises but a great story. Have read others (and will read more) from this author and they are invariably very good.
Excellent read, I was hooked from the start to the finish. I’d definitely recommend it
Perfect at what though
Tess is running for her life, literally. She stashes her daughter in a safe house, hopefully she will be safe. Both of them are hiding from her husband, the serial killer. He's a perfect serial killer who got away with it once before and he will again. Because he's determined to get revenge and get his daughter back. Tess changes her name and enlists the help of J.T. An ex mercenary who has his own demons to live with.
I love the pace of this book. It keeps you intrigued and gripped. Will Jim be caught or will he exact his revenge?
