Book Description……….

Alex Taylor wakes up tied to an operating table.

The man who stands over her isn’t a doctor.

The offer he makes her is utterly unspeakable.

But when Alex re-awakens, she’s unharmed – and no one believes her horrifying story.


Ostracised by her colleagues, her family and her partner, Alex begins to wonder if she really is losing her mind. And then she meets the next victim.


So compulsive you can’t stop reading. So chilling you won’t stop talking about it. A pitch-black and devastatingly original psychological thriller.


Book Review By 2Shay……….

I very seldom give a .5 addition to a book, but this one was above average, so I tacked it on. This book is very British, with slang that went zooming right over my American head. The hospital jargon was particularly hard to comprehend. It took me a while to decipher that their A & E is probably the same as our ER, and their “consulting” doctors are the same as our attending physicians. I think. Maybe.

In any language (Joke!), this is a pretty good story.  As much sympathy as I had for Alex, she kept making things worse for herself, but I really did sympathize. There are some great characters. I think my favorite is Nathan. I loved him to pieces. The story is a little trite. I think I have seen similar on a dozen made for TV movies. Not quite the same, but similar.

If you can understand British slang, you might think I’m a little off base…because I don’t. If, like me, their slang leaves you a bit bewildered, I think you will like the story anyway. So, pick up a copy and…
