My thoughts: I can’t imagine how awful it must be growing up knowing your dad was a murderer. I actually went to school with a girl whose dad was in prison for that, they’d changed their names and moved away to avoid scrutiny but aged 7 she sometimes forgot she wasn’t supposed to tell her friends where her dad was and why.

Lexi’s father was a killer but her mother abandoned her too, and she grew up with loving foster parents on Lindisfarne Island, off the Northumberland coast. But when her birth mother is murdered by a copycat killer, she’s terrified, and justly so. Running back to Lindisfarne with her daughter, to supposed safety, puts them both in danger as the copycat is out for revenge.

Shocking, gripping, heart in mouth stuff. When Agatha the kitten went missing I though I might have to abandon the book, for all the crime fiction I read and watch on TV, I can’t handle harm to animals or small children. Thankfully I didn’t need to, but it certainly ups the horror factor – and tension. Will Lexi and Isla be OK on an island where you can’t leave when the tide comes in? Chilling stuff.
