He’s following you on Twitter.
He knows where you are right now…

When Amy receives an email from her older sister, Becky, announcing that she’s off travelling and “don’t try to find me”, she is worried. Becky would never do such a thing on a whim.

Amy – who is recovering from an abusive relationship that has left her terrified of love – soon finds that Becky had started using online dating sites. Aided by Becky’s neighbour, Gary, Amy sets about tracking down the men her sister had dated, following a trail that leads her into the darkly seductive world of internet hook-ups.

But Amy is unaware that a sadistic killer is watching – a killer who’s been using the internet to stalk, torture and kill. Now he’s got something very special planned for Amy and she is about to find out that romance really is dead.


My Review

A very creepy book indeed, with some sisterly love, fast paced thriller, creepy, oh, I already mentioned creepy, Makes you think twice about internet dating and what you share in the internet and social networks in general, not that I have ever been internet dating myself.

I have previously read The Magpies by Mark Edwards, this was so much better, Great characters, short chapters and a quick read you won´t want to put down.

Louise Voss was born and raised in Salisbury, England. She began her writing career in the mid-1990s when, while living in New York, she enrolled in a creative writing course.

Her first novel, To Be Someone, was published in 2001 by Transworld, and was the first book to come with its own CD soundtrack. This was followed by three more contemporary women’s fiction novels until she switched to writing thrillers with Mark Edwards in 2011.

She and Mark were the first UK self-published authors to reach #1 on the Amazon charts with Catch Your Death. Their fifth co-written novel, From the Cradle, was published last year by Thomas & Mercer.

Louise currently lives and writes near Hampton Court. She is an avid tennis player, knitter, singer, upcycler and jewellery-maker, and adds that she can stand on her head and write backwards. Although not at the same time.

I write psychological thrillers. My influences include writers such as Stephen King, Ira Levin, Ruth Rendell, Ian McEwan, Val McDermid and Donna Tartt and movies like Rosemary’s Baby, Single White Female, Fatal Attraction and anything in which scary things happen to ordinary people.

I love hearing from readers and always respond. I can be contacted in the following ways

My first solo novel, THE MAGPIES, topped the Kindle chart in the UK. WHAT YOU WISH FOR followed in March 2014 and BECAUSE SHE LOVES ME was published in September 2014. My next solo book, FOLLOW YOU HOME, will be out in June 2015.

I have co-written five novels with Louise Voss: CATCH YOUR DEATH (a No.1 bestseller in the UK), KILLING CUPID (chosen by Peter James as his book of 2012), ALL FALL DOWN and FORWARD SLASH. FROM THE CRADLE was published in 2014 and is the first in a series featuring DI Patrick Lennon.

After a career that has taken in everything from picking broad beans and answering complaint calls for a rail company to teaching English in Japan and being a marketing director, I currently write full-time.

I live in the West Midlands with my wife, our three children and a ginger cat.
