The best way to catch a killer? Offer yourself as bait.

Becky Morgan's family were the victims of the 'crimes of the decade'. The lone survivor of a ritualistic killing, Becky's been forever haunted by the memories of that night.

Twenty years later, with the killer never found, Becky is ready to hunt them down and exact revenge. But the path to find the murderer is a slippery slope and she finds herself opening up some old wounds that should have been left sealed.

Will Becky avenge her family or join them?

My Review

The ordeal that Rebecca Morgan has to go through is one that I would hope I would never have to go through as it is one terrifying act of brutality. Some of the murders described are gory and violent and shocking. As wrong as it sounds I enjoyed these bits in the book as these bits were straightforward. You knew what you were going to get. Other times in the book I did get confused about where in Europe Becky was. She always travelling and I didn’t know where. There were also shock galore with the big reveal too! I did not seem them coming!

It was also quite scary to think that there was someone out there committing these ritualistic murders all over Europe! Makes you not want to leave your front door.

How Becky is able to function in the morning I will never know. She has had it hard, a lot of therapy, a lot of seeing the end of a bottle and a lot of false names. That is not a life, so by taking her revenge, she is able to start living again. She is strong and she very much likes to take risks and think of the consequences later! I do have to do a shout out to Rupert, loved that guy!

It was quite a rollercoaster of events spreading across Europe, infiltrating the politicians, police and just your average Joe Bloggs! The opening chapter will give you chills, something out of a horror film! The rest is a scary game of cat and mouse and a lot of revelations to be uncovered.

Until next time xxx
