For Flora no risk is too great, no cost too high, even if it means playing into a predator's hands.

Two victims. One cop.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT...if you're going to FIND HER


With so many crime thrillers to enjoy what I want as w reader is a tale that will grab my attention, throw in a good few twists and of course keep me glued to the pages whilst it weaves its eldritch spell over me.

What this story from Lisa does is bring all of that to the fore alongside giving the reader a protagonist who is not just a victim but a hunter as she twists the scenario round with inventive solutions. Its cleverly done allowing the reader to see sensitivities alongside strength, weakness and mental resolve whilst at the same time giving the reader a whole host of characters to delve into as you try to figure things out before the tale reaches its conclusion.

Back this up with some great twists, believable characters alongside a story that keeps you fascinated from start to finish and all round I was a very happy reader. Great stuff.
