Summary

If it had happened to you, you would have run away, too.

Twenty-five years ago, Paul's friend Charlie Crabtree brutally killed their classmate - and then vanished without a trace.

Paul's never forgiven himself for his part in what happened. He never went back home.

Until his elderly mother has a fall. It's finally time to stop running.

It's not long before things start to go wrong. His mother claims there's someone in the house. Paul realises someone is following him. And, in a town many miles away, a copycat killer has struck.

Which makes him wonder - what really happened to Charlie the day of the murder?

And can anyone stop it happening again?

Stylish chiller

This is an excellent, stylish, well paced, at times almost surreal, well paced chiller thriller.

Guess someone has to write the first review...

So here goes. I didn't enjoy this book, not my type of genre. Its a little 'odd' and I didn't like the confusion of what happens in the dream and what happens in reality. Wide range of star ratings so obviously appeals to others.
