August 2016 Book of the Month.

A tension filled, dramatically striking tale, where there is far more to discover than you may at first think. Anna finds herself in the worst possible position when she takes a life in order to save her baby daughter. Events soon spiral out of control as a serial murderer from the past appears to be back in circulation. The clever unnerving prologue made me pause, and I read it again, just to confirm my initial feelings. Tracy Buchanan’s writing ensured I immediately connected with Anna as a shocking incident occurred, then a tight knot of unease grew inside me as events unfolded. An unknown and frankly chilling voice interjects every now and then, sewing discord, creating disquiet and uncertainty. With several blades thrusting for dominance, it’s easy to get lost in the moment before realising with a jolt that a voice from the past is threatening the future. ‘No Turning Back’ throws feelings and thoughts up in the air, before allowing them to settle for the end, and is a thought-provoking read. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

No Turning Back by Tracy Buchanan

You'd kill to protect your child - wouldn't you? FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF My Sister's Secret When radio presenter Anna Graves and her baby are attacked on the beach by a crazed teenager, Anna reacts instinctively to protect her daughter. But her life falls apart when the schoolboy dies from his injuries. The police believe Anna's story, until the autopsy results reveal something more sinister. A frenzied media attack sends Anna into a spiral of self-doubt. Her precarious mental state is further threatened when she receives a chilling message from someone claiming to be the 'Ophelia Killer', responsible for a series of murders twenty years ago. Is Anna as innocent as she claims? And is murder forgivable, if committed to save your child's life...?
