This was an interesting concept for a story - a girl narrowly escapes being the victim of a serial killer and spends some time trying to rebuild her life, only to find that he’s still after her. It has all the elements that should make a thrilling read, but I have to say, the actual murderer didn’t quite have me convinced.

Perhaps I’ve been spoiled by other, more careful books, but it felt like this guy made so many mistakes it was a wonder he managed to get away with it for as long as he did.

On the flip side, I thought it was interesting to read about how our hero dealt with her survivor’s guilt, and that rather than turning her into a hermit, it made her more reckless than ever. Hit and miss, really, this book, but an entertaining read nevertheless.
