SHE HAS TO FIND THE TRUTH BEFORE THEY FIND HER…

Fifteen years ago, Lilith Wade was arrested for the brutal murder of six women. After a death row conviction and media frenzy, her thirty-year-old daughter Edie is a recovering alcoholic with a dead-end city job, just trying to survive out of the spotlight.

Edie also has a disturbing secret: a growing obsession with the families of Lilith’s victims. She’s desperate to discover how they’ve managed—or failed—to move on, and whether they’ve fared better than her.

Edie remembers nothing of the night of the death, and must get to the truth before the police—or the real killer—find her.

Nemesister - Sophie Jonas-Hill

As I’m on the blog tour for the second book in this series, I have to maintain the natural order of things, and read book one first.

 bookdescription

A page-turning thriller of deception and obsession!

A mysterious woman stumbles into a deserted shack with no memory but a gun in her hand. There she meets an apparent stranger, Red, and the two find themselves isolated and under attack from unseen assailants.

Barricaded inside for a sweltering night, cabin fever sets in and brings her flashes of insight which might be memory or vision as the swamp sighs and moans around her.

Exploring in the dark she finds hidden keys that seem to reveal her identity and that of her mysterious host, but which are the more dangerous – the lies he’s told her, or the ones she’s told herself?

Sophie Jonas-Hill’s gripping and highly original debut will thrill fans of John Connolly, Holly Seddon and the Women’s Murder Club thrillers. Continue reading “Book Review: Nemesister by Sophie Jonas-Hill (Crooked Little Sisters #1)”
