This is the first time I am reading the book from this author and first time reading this series. This is actually the third book of the Jemima Huxley series but you don’t necessary need to read the last two books.
In 2019, Jemima Huxley gets a frantic call from Charlie Morgan, claiming, Violet Morgan had gone missing after spending a night with her colleagues from work. Six years ago, Jemima Huxley had been investigating a case of stalking when Violet complained that her next door neighbor, Bryon Toombes had been harassing her. The police failed to arrest Bryon as he had escaped. Now with time running out, Bryon must have returned back to seek revenge from Violet.
I really like the plot line of the story. The writing was good and the author did a good job making the reader hooked into the story. The thriller is a fast paced thriller with lots of action that will make you feel breathless at some parts. It was actually an interesting book with some twists and turns. However, the ending to me was a bit predictable to me.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. Worth five stars!
