The truth hurts – but lies are deadly
After eighteen months of grieving for her husband Bernie, killed in a horrific hit and run accident, Natalie Gray has found love with her husband’s best friend – Ed Cooper – and has moved herself and fifteen-year-old daughter, Scarlett, into his home. But Natalie begins to suspect Ed has a dark side – and even darker intentions.
Desperate to get her daughter to a place of safety, she and Scarlett move to a new home that holds secrets of its own. But has removing Scarlett from one potential threat placed her in far greater danger?
DCI Tom Douglas is also chasing the truth, as his investigation into the suicide of a teenage girl draws him ever closer to Natalie and Scarlett. But will he be too late to protect them from the peril they face, or from the truths that will tear their lives apart?
My Review: Once again Rachel Abbott has delivered a real page-turner. I don’t want to give ANYTHING away in this twisty story except to say the wonderful DCI Tom Douglas still makes my heart flutter, his relationship with his team is brilliant and as for the crime they are investigating… OMG.
The Sixth Window does deal with a highly disturbing subject and some readers may feel uncomfortable however I felt it was dealt with sensitively at all times.
All of the DCI Tom Douglas books came be read as standalone but seriously.. why would you? I highly recommend this series and obviously would say start with Book 1.
