Hello all! Another book review–a thriller and a debut one written by Gillian Larkin.
First, there were hedgehogs.
Then there was a murder.
And now, Maggie Kelburn is on the run from a killer.
Maggie Kelburn is an ordinary woman who lives on an ordinary street. A quiet street where nothing unremarkable happens.
Until a neighbour is murdered.
Maggie doesn’t know she captured the murder on video until a surveillance expert, Sam Ward, shows her the footage. Together, they take the recording to the police.
But the recording device is stolen from the police station. And a short while later, Maggie’s home is invaded. A chilling message is left for her: I know what you saw
Sam convinces Maggie to seek safety in another town, and he offers to help her. But can Maggie trust Sam? Can she trust anyone?
Maggie leaves her home and travels from one side of the country to the other as she tries to find safety, and justice for the neighbour who was murdered.
But the killer is right behind her. They let Maggie know she will never be safe.
A thrilling mystery full of twists and turns.

I’m an avid fan of mystery stories. I started reading Agatha Christie novels at an early age. My favourite fiction detective is Poirot, I love his fussy ways and his attention to small details. I love the TV series, ‘Murder,She Wrote’ and have watched every episode. I like working out who the killer is, and what the clues are.
I live near Leeds, Yorkshire, which is in the north of England. My two daughters live with me and they are understanding about my passion for mystery shows! I’ve now discovered ‘Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries’.
I’ve been wanting to write my own mystery stories for years – and now I finally have.

First of all, I got this book free from Amazon and last I checked, it’s free through Kindle.
So in a nutshell, this story is about a woman named Maggie who goes into the surveillance shop with her camera so she can prove to the neighbors that there are hedgehogs coming into her garden. But besides hedgehogs, she and the surveillance shop owner Sam witnessed a murder that happened right across Maggie’s house. Then things started to change.
So I will tell the ones what I like about the book.
- This is actually a fast paced thriller and I do like fast paced thrillers
- This book is also easy to read so in other words, you can actually finish the book within a day.
- Some parts in the book was funny particularly the partnership between Maggie and Sam.
- This book was simple and well written so I think the author has done a good job of writing this book.
- The characters, particularly Maggie are all likable.
Now the ones I didn’t like about the book.
- There were few characters in the book so already you can guess who the killer is.
Overall, this is a good book. Highly recommend for a fast read. Worth four stars!
