Publisher's Summary

A chilling and compelling debut crime thriller set in South East London. For all those who enjoy Peter James, Mark Billingham, and Peter Robinson. Three women have been found brutally murdered in south London, the victims only feet away from help during each sadistic attack. And the killer is getting braver.... Sarah Grainger is rapidly becoming too afraid to leave her house. Once an outgoing photographer, she knows that someone is watching her. A cryptic note brings everything into terrifying focus, but it's the chilling phone calls that take the case to another level.
DI Mike Lockyer heads up the regional murder squad. With three bodies on his watch, and a killer growing in confidence, he frantically tries to find the link between these seemingly isolated incidents. What he discovers will not only test him professionally but will throw his personal life into turmoil, too.
After 10 years in London, working for a City law firm, Clare Donoghue moved back to her home town in Somerset to undertake an MA in creative writing at Bath Spa University. Never Look Back is her first novel and in 2011, whilst still an unpublished manuscript, was long-listed for the CWA Debut Dagger.

An excellent debut

Although this debut from Clare Donoghue does not quite live up to the hype it is an excellently written, constructed and characterised thriller. I did find myself completely gripped by it and found it to be something a little different from many of the current psychological thrillers. I always love multiple voices narrating as it seems to bring the story alive and the narrators here are excellent. I will definitely be watching out for what Clare Donoghue does next.

A most enjoyable read

This is an exciting thriller and the idea of using two narrators is excellent as this avoids a female reader doing exaggerated husky voices and for a male reader to try out irritating soprano efforts. Mike Lockyer the detective is extremely likeable and human. The intrigue is led at an agreable pace. This is my first encounter with Clarie Donoghue and I look forward to reading other books by this promising author.
