This is the gripping new psychological suspense novel from the author of Until You're Mine.

Then a young man is killed in a freak motorbike accident, and a suicide note is found among his belongings.

A second homeless boy takes his own life, this time on the railway tracks.

Is history about to repeat itself? DI Lorraine Fisher has just arrived for a relaxing summer break with her sister.

Soon she finds herself caught up in the resulting police enquiry. And when her nephew disappears she knows she must act quickly.

Are the recent deaths suicide - or murder? And is the nightmare beginning again?

Review by

DI Lorraine Fisher has taken her daughter to stay with her sister Jo. The sleepy village however has had a recent spate of suicides, too many in fact. Lorraine's nephew has been depressed recently then disappears. Lorraine is soon on the case and all is not what it seems.My Thoughts:This is the second book to feature Lorraine Fisher and very unlike me I haven't read the first one, although I have it to read. This book however can quite easily be read as a stand alone book as nothing is given away about the first.Lorraine has come across as quite a good character and I will quite enjoy getting to know her and her family more. Sam Hayes has done a good job here, a worthy thriller that on this occasion focuses on family life.There were plenty of twists and turns and I didn't guess who the perp was which for me is always a positive. I don't always like knowing too early. The perp wasn't revealed until quite late in the book which for stops the boredom setting in.The book was an easy read and not too taxing but had enough thrills for the pages to keep being turned. A worthy four star read.
