They will be coming soon. They come every night.

Snow is falling softly as a young woman takes her last breath.

Fifteen miles away, two women sit silently in a dark kitchen. They don’t speak, because there is nothing left to be said.

Another woman boards a plane to escape the man who is trying to steal her life. But she will have to return, sooner or later.

These strangers have one thing in common. They each made one bad choice – and now they have no choices left. Soon they won’t be strangers, they’ll be family…

When DCI Tom Douglas is called to the cold, lonely scene of a suspicious death, he is baffled. Who is she? Where did she come from? How did she get there?

How many more must die? Who is controlling them, and how can they be stopped? 


I love Rachel Abbott’s books and I have become quite a fan of DCI Tom Douglas. If you haven’t given a try to this series of books, I don’t know what you are waiting for.

This dark and gripping thriller has been a joy to read. I couldn’t have predicted the many twists in a million years, and that’s something that I really love in a good thriller story.

The more I read about Tom Douglas, the more I love this character. It’s complex and he has gone through a lot of development.

This book is quite the page-turner and the pace is the right one to make you read chapter after chapter, losing track of time.

This is book 7 in a series. Although the books can be read as standalones, it’s better to read the books in order so you get a fully grasp of the development of the main character.

Anyhow, for all of that, I give this book… 5 TEA CUPS!
