A gripping psychological thriller for fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.
Leah Mills lives a life of a fugitive – kept on the run by one terrible day from her past. It is a lonely life, without a social life or friends until – longing for a connection – she meets Julian. For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life.
Then, on the fourteenth anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed the life Leah has created.
But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?
Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly.
The Girl With No Past is a gripping thriller that I literally struggled to put down.
Can anyone ever out run there past? Unfortunately for Leah Mills hers has just caught back up with her and boy what a ride the author takes us on in finding out exactly what it is about Leah’s past that is so bad.
I really had no idea what Leah could have possibly done that was so bad that she was having to live like a recluse and to frightened to get close to anyone. As the chapters alternate between Leah’s present day life and her past when she is at high school age, the author torments us by not giving to much away so that the reader is well and truly hooked.
I really felt for Leah, it seems at long last that she is finally ready to move on and let someone into her life then everything starts to go horribly wrong. Someone is hell bent on ruining her life and it soon becomes apparent that this person wants revenge. Only problem is, who from Leah’s past could it be?
I really could not read this book quick enough, I just wanted to devour it all. The author kept me guessing right up until it was there like a big neon sign in front of me as to what had actually happened. I also had no clue who was behind all the horrible emails and incidents that were occurring in present day either.
A brilliant psychological thriller that you really will want to read!
