Two kidnappings, thirty years apart. Can Stacey face her own dark past in order to save her stepdaughter?
When Stacey’s ex-husband turns up on her doorstep begging her to help save his kidnapped thirteen-year-old daughter, Lyra, the terror is all too familiar. Stacey’s own violent kidnapping thirty years ago was never solved, and while a severe case of amnesia spares her from recalling the specific horrors, she remembers enough…
Stacey knows her father never paid the ransom—she has the missing pinkie finger to prove it. She knows she was only saved because of an anonymous tip-off to the police. And she knows her captor was never apprehended.
Lyra’s kidnappers have made it clear the police must not get involved. But Stacey can’t shake the eerie similarities between the two cases, and she’ll use whatever she can, from her journalistic powers to her shady contacts, to save Lyra from the same nightmare. Desperate to find any link between Lyra’s abduction and her own, Stacey forces herself to revisit her forgotten, traumatic past for clues.
But can she make sense of the terrible secrets she unearths in time to save Lyra? And if she does, is she ready to face her own tormentor?
I have said this once and will say it again…Having read both genres by the author. I am loving Carol’s darker side. Once again she brings us a story that will have you hooked from start to finish.
The more I read the more I wanted to know. I literally could’nt tear myself away. The build up of suspense is absolutely brilliant. When we meet Stacey…a character that I loved and would love to read more of. Although this is a standalone I feel that this book is going places and would make a great start to a new series!
In this book we follow a story that alternatives between two kidnappings. One which happens to Stacey 30 years ago and the other is her step daughter which happens in the present when Stacey’s ex husband begs for her help. Can she face her past and find the link to both the kidnappings is the question?
Behind Closed Doors will have you guessing until the end with plenty of twists and turns. Not forgetting the OMG ending….I wasn’t expecting that!
If your looking for an addictive thriller then this is the book for you.
Massive thank you to Zoe for a copy and for inviting me to take part on this epic tour.
