How do you escape when you’ve set your own trap?
From behind the locked door of her home, Sarah broadcasts her popular podcast. When she starts to seek the truth about the murder of a teenage girl 12 years earlier, she soon finds herself the centre of unwanted attention.
While trying to manage her agoraphobia, as well as the online trolls and her family life, Sarah begins to uncover some uncomfortable facts relating to the cold case.
As she edges closer to accusing someone of the murder, the online threats soon become physical and as the outside world draws closer and closer to her front door threatening her home, her family and her life, Sarah must decide between fight or flight…
I have only recently started to listen to the odd podcast and have to say that if there was one like the one that Sarah has in the book, well I would certainly listen to it. Who isn’t fascinated with a murder, even when it is twelve years ago when it happened?
It’s obvious from the start that something has happened to Sarah as she won’t leave her house. It’s like a safe haven of which with all the trolls on social media, in a way I couldn’t blame her for wanting to stay in the safety of her home. Her podcast seems to be upsetting a lot of people who don’t agree with her thoughts on the murder that happened. I was just as intrigued about the murder in her podcast as what had happened to her. Obviously I had to read on to find out more.
The story is one that is packed full of suspense. Did the police get it right with the man they put behind the bars? Like Sarah, I was beginning to think maybe not. She is very much like a dog with a bone as once she has got hold of it, no way is she going to leave it alone until she has got to the bottom of it.
I thought the story was very modern with the podcast theme which you don’t come across very often in books. It’s definitely something that is very current and the story flows well flitting from the podcasts and then back to Sarah.
Don’t Let Me In is a dark and twisted read that will ensure you keep turning those pages. I read it in one day as the author had me well and truly gripped and I was desperate to find out more about what had happened to Sarah as well as who did murder the teenage girl all those years ago. When it all comes out, well I was not disappointed and liked how the author keeps a few things up his sleeve that I never saw coming. A great read.
