The sensational new thriller from the author of the Richard & Judy bestseller Lie With Me.


‘Need a reminder of what makes thrillers great? Read this.’ Emerald Street


Tessa and Marcus went on holiday to save their marriage.

Instead they nearly lost their son.


In that fatal moment of inattention a stranger stepped in. And now Dave Jepsom is in their lives.


They owe him – they know that – but he seems to want everything. He’s on the streets they walk down. He’s at the office where they work. He’s knocking at their front door…


And he’s exposing secrets they would do anything to hide.


If they could just go back. Not make that one terrible mistake.


But it’s never how it starts that matters. It’s always how it ends.



My View:

I am a big fan of this author. She never fails to surprise me, to lead me completely and easily away from the essence of truth in the narrative, I am always amazed and sometimes petrified by the end of the story.


You will read this in two sittings: there is so much tension, so much anticipation of the worst to come that you will walk away and let the knots unravel in your stomach before you pick this book up again and finish reading. A powerful read.

Waiting In Anticipation For This Book To Arrive


In the mail sometime in the newt few weeks I will be receiving a review copy of this amazing sounding book.  Lori Lansens’ The Mountain Story is calling me. The book trailer just oozes fear, suspense and evokes spine chilling apprehension.    This is a  great example where less is more. Can anyone suggest who is narrating the video clip?  I think it is TJ Thyne from Bones?

When a book trailer is done well – it really works as this one does.  Stay tuned for my review , I am clearing my diary for this one,  I just know I will read this one in one sitting.

“Five days. Four hikers. Three survivors. From Lori Lansens, author of the national bestsellers Rush Home Road, The Girls and The Wife’s Tale comes a gripping tale of adventure, sacrifice and survival in the unforgiving wilderness of a legendary mountain.”
