***** 5 STARS
Nancy Kerr refuses to be a victim – even when she walks in on her parents’ killers and is raped and left for dead. Fourteen months later, she wakes up in a psychiatric hospital with no knowledge of how she got there. Slowly her memory starts to return. Released from the institution, she has just one thing on her mind – two men brought hell to her family home. Now they’re in for some hell of their own.
This is the ultimate book of revenge and this time it is the woman who’s in control and she knows how to get what she wants. That saying this book is not for the faint hearted and is extremely dark and violent, think of a Scottish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and that Nancy Kerr is the Scottish equivalent of Lisbeth Salander and you will begin to get an idea of the level of violent events that take place, though when you think of what Nancy goes through physically and mentally in the first chapters of the book it is no wonder she becomes so bent on taking revenge.
The other thing you should be aware of before you start reading this book is that it is very addictive and once you start you start reading you will not want to put it down, so forget about eating, sleeping or going to work as this is a roller coaster of book that will have leave you on a high and your emotions all over the place. The book gets even better when Nancy joins up with her sidekick Tommy McIntyre and their will they wont they relationship keeps you wanting more and more.
And while we’re are on the subject of wanting more when you get to the last page in the book you will not want it to end as the author leaves the book with a cliff hanger that will make you desperate to get your hands on the sequel.
