To Rebecca it was a brave decision that led to her freedom from domestic abuse. To Solomon it was the ultimate betrayal.
It’s been ten years since Rebecca’s testimony saw Solomon locked away. Enough time for the nightmares to recede, the nerves to relax; enough time to rebuild her life and put the past behind her.
Then one day a phone rings in her bedroom—but it’s not her phone. Solomon has been in her home, and has a very simple message for her: for each of the ten years he has spent in jail, Rebecca must witness a crime. And, to make matters worse, she has to choose the victims.
Fail to respond and you get hurt. Talk to police and you die. Ready to play? You have sixty seconds to decide…
As the crimes grow more severe, the victims closer to home, Rebecca is forced to confront a past she had hoped was gone forever.
My Review – 5 stars
An absolute winner from Caroline Mitchell
It was so chilling in parts that it gave me goosebumps as I read.
I was just so tense reading this story, especially as the messages came in from Solomon’s phone and the seconds ticked down. The game he played with her was truly horrible.
The hold that Solomon had over Rebecca after all these years was chilling. Still feeling it necessary to cover up for him. It really got under my skin. I can’t imagine how it must be in real life, but the author portrays it brilliantly. I was so nervous for her family, and the villagers. I just didn’t know what was coming next.
It definitely creeped me out, as do most books from this fab author.
I recommend this book 100%.
Thanks to the publishers, Thomas & Mercer, and NetGalley for the ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.
