The Victim: A teenage girl has been brutally murdered on her way home from school.

I was eager to read new this Hayder book as it wasn't part of the Jack Caffery series. The book was still dark in the typical Hayder way but it wasn't as 'creepy' as usual. It didn't have the usual nasty Caffery details. But I still enjoyed this. It's good to see some different characters and I would love to see more of Zoe and Sally. And the twist at the end? Fab! I usually know who the bad guy is immediately, but this one had me second guessing myself all the way through!

I have loved all the Mo Hayder books that I have read before but I could not get into this one. It seemed very slow and just did not hold my interest - I think I got about half way through and could not give it anymore time to get going. Such a shame as I was really looking forward to reading it.Back Cover Blurb:A teenage girl has been brutally murdered on her way home from school.

This is the story of two sisters from Bath. Zoe is a police woman she investigates the death of a teenage girl who went to school with her niece Milly. Millys mum is Sally she is recently divorced a bit skint and does cleaning jobs. Sally commits a horrilble crime. Zoe and Sally haven't talked for years, then suddenly they come together and try and solve the death of the teenage girl. This book started off really well but the ending was a let down.Overall worth a read.
