When Maddy Eastin tells the police she was nearly abducted by two men in a white van, her world changes for the better as she is accepted more by her peers at school, however, evidence from a neighbour changes everything for Maddy and when she makes an ill-judged TV appearance she lands in the crosshairs of a dangerous predator who has been waiting for his moment.
Well told in no small part due to the authors understanding of human behaviour, this harrowing read is compelling until the last page. Maddy’s fraught relationship with her mother and the effect of her absentee father are well written. Just as the antagonist who targets her snaps from long-term conditioning and dysfunctional family influences of his own.
This is my first book from the author and I hope it will not be my last, as her suspenseful and tense writing kept me reading this psychological thriller in one sitting. This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
