Ward Zero by Linda Huber


Book Description:

Horror swept through her. Had she been buried alive?

On Sarah’s first visit to see her foster mother, Mim, in Brockburn General Hospital, she is sucked into a world that isn’t what it should be.

Someone is lying, someone is stealing. And someone is killing – but who? With a grieving child to take care of, as well as Mim, Sarah has to put family first. She doesn’t see where danger lies – until it’s too late.

If you think you’re safe in a hospital, think again.

My Thoughts:

I’ve read a few novels by this author now and one thing I  know that I’m guaranteed, is a gripping read.

The story starts off where the reader realises that something bad is going to happen to Sarah and then we are taken back to events leading up to quite a dramatic ordeal. I think this makes the reader a lot more wary of everyone that Sarah meets as quite a few of the characters could be the culprit.

I think the story line is very much a realistic one which made it even more gripping. I won’t go into the story line to much as I don’t want to give to much away but it’s certainly something I have seen in the news sadly happening quite often to the older generation and it really angered me.

Even though the author puts quite a few red herrings in there to try and throw you off the scent as to who the culprit could be, I did work out early on as to who it was but I was still interested to see how they were going to get caught out and it certainly gets quite a tense read the further into the story we go.

Sarah is a likeable character who gets dragged into something she can’t possibly imagine. All she is trying to do is look after the people she cares about but by doing this she leaves herself in danger. It very much becomes a race against time in exposing the killer before he kills again.

Ward Zero is a suspenseful and chilling read. It makes for a tense and uneasy read in parts that will have you wanting to keep turning the pages to see what the outcome is going to be. A must read for fans of psychological suspense/thriller novels.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
