A cracking thriller that kept me guessing right through to the end. Even when I began to get an idea about what linked everyone together, there were still plenty of unknowns to keep me turning the pages fast. It’s got a very nasty paedophile centre, a high body count and lots going on, a good story, well written and highly recommended. Comparison: Linwood Barclay, Harlan Coben, Lisa Gardner.
