Leona Deakin started her career as a psychologist with the West Yorkshire Police. She is now an occupational psychologist and lives with her family in Leeds. This is her debut thriller.
Dark, with a focus on psychopathy, this is undoubtedly our favourite thriller of 2019. Shiver as Dr August Bloom is drawn into a chilling game with very high stakes. What sets this novel apart is the final reveal, which comes as a genuine shock, and will linger in your mind long after finishing the book. * Woman & Home * Fabulous. Beautifully imagined, beautifully written, immediately immersive, and scary as can be. * Lee Child * If you like a proper, twisty nerve-wracking thriller, here's one for you! * Emma Curtis, author of 'One Little Mistake' * With a scorching finale and a psychologist-cum-private detective to savour, this is the one to watch! * T A Cotterell, author of 'What Alice Knew' * One of the best books to buy this Christmas! * Gransnet *
