Some doors should not be opened.
Some can never be closed.
Jo Palmer’s peaceful and happy life is about to end. Ash – the man she loves – will be arrested by the police. Millie – her precious daughter – will be taken from her.
She will lose her friends. She will doubt her sanity. Someone is stealing everything Jo loves, and will stop at nothing.
But right now, Jo is laughing in her kitchen, eating dinner with her family, suspecting nothing.
It’s raining outside. There’s a knock at the door. They are here.
A DCI Tom Douglas Thriller
I hadn’t read any of the previous books in this series but this can easily be read as a standalone novel.
It starts as a family drama that quickly spirals into a nightmare as Jo’s family is ripped apart by the police, but all is not as it seems.
As the plot unwinds various characters have their secrets revealed and their dark sides exposed.
I really enjoyed this and it had enough twists and turns to keep me hooked, who was genuine, who was hiding things?
Focusing more on the victims than the investigators was quite refreshing as I read a lot of crime fiction and it so often shifts to the detectives, but this stayed on Jo and her experience.
