The police have no leads, but Hazel has a theory – one she’ll stop at nothing to prove – and she also has a film crew. She’ll make a documentary, catch the killer, and give Meredith justice.

Her stage is the abandoned amusement park where Meredith was found. 

Her cast are the family and friends the killer left behind. 

And her crew? They keep disappearing, one by one…

shocking, ‘just-one-more-page’ thriller with the most twisted killer you’ll ever meet. This book will hook you from the first page and keep you guessing long into the night. PERFECT for fans of James Patterson, Mo Hayder, and Chris Carter.

My review

This book was a dark and twisted work of art.  It is not for the faint of heart as the scenes are gruesome and very gory.

A perfect fit for someone who likes a dark and very disturbing tale.  The story itself I can see really taking place as it comes off playing to people who are naive or even stupid.  

The idea of the book was amazing and showed something that I hadn’t seen before.  The more we go to technology and the web the easier it is to lose ourselves in that one moment.  One moment was all it took to start the be my killer Twitter fest which started the mass murdering.

While I didn’t really like the characters and found the reporter annoying as anything indie find that they worked well for the book.  

This has to be my favourite dark thriller I have ever read as it has a bit of everything including an ending that I never guessed.

The true gift of a book is to say I was surprised by the ending and I didn’t see it coming.  This book was like that for me and has earned a special place in my books read.  

I was very pleased with this novel as I didn’t know What to expect having never read or heard of this author before bit I anxiously await the next novel he writes.
