I am a bit late in posting this, but hopefully I will get through these books in May. I have already finished Loch of the Dead (not in pic), reading the tagged book and The Fire Court. #tbr #books #lovebooks

I found this book reminded me of the James Bulger case in the UK in the 90s. There is a plot twist that I predicted, however there was one little thing right at the end that surprised me. This would be a good book for a book club.

So many mixed thoughts on this one. I have been interested in how the uk system treats child criminals for some time and so the premise of this was interesting to me. It was well written, undeniably creepy with a couple of twists I didn‘t see coming. BUT and it‘s a big one for me the echo of the James Bulger case were too loud and jarring for me to claim this was an enjoyable read.

BookwormM I had exactly the same problem I think a younger audience who didn‘t live through the Bulger case may be able to enjoy it. 4mo

3⭐️ this book was too close to real life crime for me to enjoy it as entertainment that said it is definitely well written and raises some interesting questions.

Being from the UK, this book stirred memories of the James Bulger murder (although it was 2 boys in that case). This is an excellent book about an emotive subject, but it lost a star as the ending to me felt too abrupt, & it left me disappointed after the rest of the book. 4🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Bloomsbury Publishing / Raven Books, for the opportunity to review an ARC.

This was a rather disturbing book - not graphic, but there is some description of the murdered child. I don‘t think I could read it if it was violent because of the fact that there is a child involved. It has echoes of the Jamie Bulger case (Brits will probably remember this). And an unresolved ending, which was a real eye opener - I definitely loved that bit!

I really liked this creepy atmospheric thriller about two women who were involved in a violent crime as children. It brings up questions about nature/nurture and morality in general. My full review is on my blog now if you feel like reading! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I received this arc from netgalley. My review is my own honest opinion.

I thoroughly enjoyed this gripping tale of suspense. It‘s very much a page turner where the question of ‘is it nature or nurture‘ springs to mind. To me this tale read quite like a horror story at times, or even an episode from ‘Tales of the Unexpected‘, especially as I began to realise that all was not as it seemed. This is a cracking read which held my attention throughout, right until the chilling end.

A psychological thriller that covers child murder, so can be an emotive read but it‘s ultimately a thriller. Alice Clark-Platts has the tension building slowly, gradually, more and more, until the marvellously, surprising and startling end. I loved this and can thoroughly recommend it....read it now before the spoilers
