Lovereading view...

Intense, shocking, thrilling… this is a fast-paced read, so as curveballs and whammies ricochet towards you, make sure you're on your toes and ready to keep up. DS Imogen Grey and DS Adrian Miles are plunged into another desperate search for the truth as twisted appalling crimes start to leach into their private lives. Katerina Diamond’s debut novel The Teacher was an absolute knock out and I really do recommend reading it first, as I do think you need to have the back story of the investigators. Katerina Diamond maintains a fabulous balance between the story of the investigation and the people being investigated. My mind went into overdrive as I raced to keep up with the characters, links and twists. ‘The Secret’ with plenty of surprises in store, has the feeling of a nightmare come to life, and is a thoroughly entertaining read. ~ Liz Robinson

Reviews

'The Queen of Grip-lit is back...'A terrific story, originally told. All hail the new Queen of Crime!' HEAT

'A web of a plot that twists and turns and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. This formidable debut is a page-turner, but don't read it before bed if you're easily spooked!' SUN
