Wow.. Thrilled and Chilled in equal measures

Well, what can I say? This is the first book by Barbara Copperthwaite I have read and I can say it was incredible.
The storyline is flawless, told from a Mothers point of view, a Mother who is desperate yet unfailing in her quest to uncover the truth behind a horrific attack on her teenage daughter Beth.
As the chillingly realistic tale unfolds the reader is only left to gasp out loud.
The ending, oh my days, the ending, as terrifying as it is, made me want to punch the air in triumph.
I absolutely LOVED this book and cannot recommend it highly enough.
