Written by Jenny Morton Potts
Keller Baye and Rebecca Brown live on different sides of the Atlantic. Until she falls in love with him, Rebecca knows nothing of Keller. But he’s known about her for a very long time, and now he wants to destroy her.
This is the story of two families. One living under the threat of execution in North Carolina. The other caught up in a dark mystery in the Scottish Highlands. The families’ paths are destined to cross. But why? And can anything save them when that happens?
Unique & Chilling!
This is a complex thriller, consisting of two seemingly unrelated threads which are created mainly in flashbacks. It takes a lot of reading to get to the point where they finally cross, and even then the reader needs to keep their wits about them.
I can honestly say that I haven’t read a psychological thriller like this one before; the truth doesn’t come out until the final pages. It is, in my opinion, both unique and chilling. There is a lot of build up to get to the point of conflict. Separately, the stories are full of information and it’s difficult to work out where it’s all going to end up. How to know which clues to pay attention to? And yet, in the last few pages it all makes complete and perfect sense. The characters are well-drawn, the writing is flawless, the cover is very eye-catching but I could have wished for a few more hints earlier on – or, perhaps they were there and I missed them?
I did wonder more than once where the book was going to end up, but having read it all I can say it is a worthwhile read. The ending? Well, I never saw it coming …
My grateful thanks to author Jenny Morton Potts for providing me with my copy. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
