Tormented to the edge of sanity …
Just when DI Matthew Adams thinks he’s left the past behind him, it comes back to haunt him once again; this time in the form of the Conner family.
Like Matthew, the Conners have lost a child in tragic circumstances – and they’ve also found themselves in the hands of one of the most depraved criminals to walk the streets: ‘Dead-eyed’ Charlie Roberts, a drug addicted low-life with a penchant for extreme violence.
Matthew’s greatest affinity lies with Daniel Conner, the brooding father who still blames himself for his youngest child’s death.
But when Daniel’s wife and daughter are tortured and tormented by Roberts, can Matthew prevent him from completely ruining his own life for an act of revenge particularly when, once upon a time, that’s exactly what Matthew would have done too?
Have you any idea how hard it is to read a book when you're holding your breath the whole way through? I'm surprised I survived the experience!
Sheryl is the mistress of the thriller. Her D I Adams' series is absolutely terrifying and this has to be the scariest yet. Daniel Conner is a tormented soul but when the chips are down, he is one of the most amazing heroes. The tension builds, and builds, and builds....... Matthew Adams is on the trail but it seems to take him forever to trace the whereabouts of scum Charlie Roberts and the Conner family. The psychological abuse Charlie inflicts on the Conners is awful and how they rise above it is astonishing.
Now I'm breathing again, I can recommend this book with absolutely no hesitation. I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to end!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
