Many thanks to the Author for contacting me  to offer me a copy for review purposes.

Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you.  
Louise Leighton’s life has fallen apart, all because of one fateful night. Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.  

Eighteen-year-old Brooke Leighton is missing. It’s up to Louise and the Metropolitan Police to find her. Has Brooke run away? Or has she been taken against her will? And can Louise aid the investigation without mentioning the night where all of her troubles began? 

If she mentions that night, she will incriminate her daughter for heinous crimes. But if she doesn’t, she may never find Brooke; and if she has been abducted, the person who took her may come for Louise, too.  

Sometimes the past comes back to kill you.

My Thoughts:

In all honesty I did not know what to expect as I would think that this is on of the few self published books that I have read. Something about the cover design and the synopsis just drew me in and I just had to find out more.

I can say that this is a thriller of an extremely high standard. It had me hooked from page one. It was taut with a pace that just didn't taper off for a second. 

This is clever and skillful writing and the plot is weaved together intricately. As the events of the night the changed Louise's life slowly come to light bit by bit, we are given small glimpses at first and then it all starts to unravel almost at the same rate at Louise's emotions.

There is just enough mystery to keep the reader guessing and engaged to find out what happens and a few red herrings in there to throw you off the scent.

The author has created some despicable characters, but characters that jump off of the page for all of their nuances. I could feel myself feeling sorry for Louise's Son Dominic, an innocent and young bystander drawn into the cruelty of the adults. 

The ending of this book is superb and although I thought I had an idea where it was going, it went that little bit further than I had bargained for. To say more will spoil it for others. If you want to know more then you are just going to have to buy it and read it.

Highly recommended and Jack Jordan is certainly a writer to watch out for.



About the Author:
Jack is an introvert disguised as an introvert, an intelligent person who can say very unintelligent things, and a self-confessed bibliomaniac with more books than sense. He has been writing for over five years now, and is so excited to have finally published his debut novel. He also works in the health and social care industry, supporting people with learning and physical disabilities, which he says is such an emotionally rewarding job. He has been in the industry for over two years, and cherishes every moment of it.
