My Review: Firstly a huge thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
I need to point out that I am a huge Tammy Cohen fan and so far have loved everything she has written.
This new book does not disappoint either. The author has an incredible talent of getting under the skin of each and every character she creates making them believable and genuine. The storyline revolves around the serial killing of young girls in Hampstead Hearg and hints at paedophilia which is not a easy topic to digest. Tammy Cohen covers this incredibly honestly and doesn’t go for the shock factor other authors do when writing about paedophiles. Each characters individual storyline was gripping and I’m not ashamed to admit I even shed a tear at the end. 5 BIG FAT STARS
