‘A perfect story to read now the colder weather is drawing in’ - Book Reviews by Claire
Do you believe in ghost stories?
‘I’m coming to find you, ready or not.’
There's not much that scares Annie Graham. Not even the horrors she has witnessed during her years on the police force.
When she agrees to look after her brother's farmhouse, she finds herself drawn to the crumbling old mansion in the woods nearby. But an innocent exploration of the empty ruin and the discovery of the diary of former resident Alice leaves her more than a little spooked. She knows it holds the secrets to a dark past, and she has to find out more.
What was the terrible truth that Alice uncovered? And how could what happened to her over 100 years ago help solve the murders of young women in the town?
Annie needs to stop the serial killer before she becomes his next victim – but the past comes back to haunt her in ways she could never have expected.
A haunting crime thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The book takes to you on a journey through the seen and unseen. I’ve enjoyed her books. A little less use of the words giggle and wink would be better.
