A dark, shocking and relentlessly gripping thriller that will keep you up all night, until the final page has been turned.
‘Sara! Remember! Victoria and Albert. All I can say. They’re here. They’re-‘
These are the last words Sara Prior will ever hear from her husband.
As DS Nathan Cody struggles to make sense of the enigmatic message and solve the brutal murder, it soon becomes clear that Sara is no ordinary bereaved wife. Taking the investigation into her own hands, Sara is drawn into a world of violence that will lead her in a direction she would never have suspected.
For Cody, meanwhile, things are about to get personal in the darkest and most twisted ways imaginable.
For anyone new to this authors books, Your Deepest Fear is a novel in the DS Nathan Cody crime series. It does read well as a standalone but I reckon you will be rushing off to buy the others after this one, which are just as fantastic believe me!
The author gives us a great mix of the case that Cody is working on as well as more closer to home, involving what happened to Cody in the past. I loved reading both threads, especially the one to do with what happened to Cody previously leaving him to be the damaged man he is today. I really makes for some gripping reading.
I loved Sara’s character in the story. There is just something about a strong female role that really appeals. Maybe it’s because a little bit of me would love to be like her. She really is a force to be reckoned with and I loved her determination.
Your Deepest Fear is a great addition to the already brilliant series. A lot of the story focuses on Cody, of which fans are going to love. There was a hint of humour in places and I particularly loved the scene in the shoe shop. It’s hard to really delve into this story without giving to much away, but, this is yet another twisted, thrill of a read that will have you pounding through the pages. Dark and oh so chilling. Loved it!
