A twisting, chilling crime thriller reeling with family friction and psychological intrigue.
Driven by protagonist DS Veronica “Ronnie” Delmar, Lucy Martin’s Stop at Nothing heralds a refreshing new voice in female-fronted crime fiction. It’s a bona fide page-turner that’ll keep thriller fans on their toes, and reading long after bedtime.
Secrets, lies and betrayals abound throughout the novel, which sees divorcee DS Ronnie Delmar drawn into a complex case (and a complex family) when a teenage girl, Amie, is abused by the caretaker at her suburban school. With teenage kids of her own, and the case resonating with her life, Ronnie is driven to see justice done, while her own life feels like it’s unravelling.
Putting the caretaker behind bars is only the first piece of this complicated puzzle, as Ronnie discovers when he’s released. As both Ronnie and Amie feel ransacked by betrayal, the action ramps up when Ronnie starts to truly untangle the mess - but not before a succession of edge-of-your-seat twists and action scenes, and the truth coming as an unexpected shock.
The chilling break out thriller, perfect for fans of Cara Hunter, Fiona Barton and Gillian Flynn. How far would you go to get what you want?
