My family said he killed my mother. They lied…

I was just a little girl, fast asleep in my stroller, the day my mother was killed. I don’t remember anything about the sunny day that turned so dark.

She’d be so happy for me now, twenty years later, with my dream job as a photographer, and I’m sure she’d love my new boyfriend, Gabriel. But all my happiness vanishes in a heartbeat when the man from our past walks towards me, his eyes on me for just a fraction too long.

I recognise his face from the picture in the papers. He killed my mother.

I try to run but he wants me to listen. He says that he is innocent, and that my family have been lying to me for years.

My father and sister tell me to stay away. They remind me that because of him my mother never got to tuck me in at night or ease me through my first heartbreak. Gabriel says he could be dangerous. But when he is found dead, I am shaken to my core. Who needed to keep him quiet?

I won’t feel safe until I find out what he wanted to tell me. But when I find that my father has lied about the past and Gabriel has hidden photos of my mother under his bed, I realise I can’t trust anyone. I want the truth. But if I find it, will my life be in danger?

An absolutely addictive read that will have you racing through the pages and questioning everything you thought you knew about your family. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Lisa Jewell and Shari Lapena

My Review:

The Suspect by Kathryn Croft is a suspense filled thriller that keeps you on your toes from beginning to end. Addictive and well paced, it is a book that reveals its secrets slowly, the sense of danger increasing bit by bit as the tension begins to ratchet up to breaking point.

A dual timeline novel, the story moves between Lori in the past and her daughter Jess in the present. Twenty eight years ago Lori was murdered as she walked in a park with baby Jess in a pushchair. Jess remembers nothing about that horrific day and is happy with how her life is going, but then everything changes in a heartbeat when a man confronts her on the street, telling her that he is innocent of her mother’s murder and that her family have been lying to Jess all her life.

As her family tell her to stay away from the man, Jess begins to realise that she doesn’t know who to trust. Is her father telling the truth? Or has he been lying about what actually happened to her mother that day? As the story moves backwards and forwards in time, what really did happen to Lori is slowly revealed and Jess finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew, not only about her mother’s death, but also about the very people she thought she could trust with her life…

The Suspect is a well plotted and exciting psychological thriller that once started is impossible to put down. With a cast of memorable characters and a storyline that keeps you guessing, Kathryn Croft has written an addictive thriller with the kind of twists and turns that will keep you glued to the pages from beginning to end.

.Although a new author to me, Kathryn Croft’s writing is so good that I’ll most definitely read more books by her in the future. The Suspect is a fantastic read that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. I loved it!

The Suspect by Kathryn Croft is available to buy now.
