When a Cambridge student dramatically attempts to take her own life, DI Mark Joesbury realizes that the university has developed an unhealthy record of young people committing suicide in extraordinary ways.
Despite huge personal misgivings, Joesbury sends young policewoman DC Lacey Flint to Cambridge with a brief to work undercover, posing as a vulnerable, depression-prone student.
Psychiatrist Evi Oliver is the only person in Cambridge who knows who Lacey really is - or so they both hope. But as the two women dig deeper into the darker side of university life, they discover a terrifying trend . . .
And when Lacey starts experiencing the same disturbing nightmares reported by the dead girls, she knows that she is next.
If you love a tale that brings together crime, fear and emotional responses for you as a reader, then SJ Bolton has probably been on your radar for quite some time. Hitting out with Lacey Flints second adventure the reader is thrown into a dark psychological crime thriller that will keep you glued as you work your way through each chapter. The writing is sharp, the prose wonderfully descriptive and when added to a wonderful pace that keeps your heart going throughout really makes this a hard to put down title.
Add to this the fact that this is SJ’s fifth book then the readers will have to agree that she is here to stay, so much so that as a reader I know that she’s one of the authors who haunts my sleep as I love to spend not only time with her characters but I really enjoy the way she twists my emotions as I worry about what’s going to unfurl. Cracking.
