What the publisher says: YOU SAW IT HAPPEN. DIDN’T YOU? What do you do if you witness a murder…but no-one believes you? When Kate sees a horrific murder streamed live on her laptop, she calls the police in a state of shock. But when they arrive, the video has disappeared – and she can’t prove anything. Desperate to be believed, Kate tries to find out who the girl in the video could be – and who her killer is. Freddie and Nas are working on a missing persons case, but tensions in the police force are running high and time is ticking. When Kate contacts them, they are the only ones to listen and they start to wonder – are the two cases connected? Dark, gripping, and flawlessly paced, Trust Me is the brilliant third novel in the hugely popular social media murderer series. What I say: I had been looking forward to this novel enormously and I am relieved to say I was not disappointed.  Follow Me and Watch Me were interlinked stories where it helped to have read the first before reading the second but Trust Me is an entirely new story.  The relationship between Freddie and Nas…

What the publisher says: YOU HAVE SIX SECONDS TO READ THIS MESSAGE… The body of a 15-year-old is found hours after she sends a desperate message to her friends. It looks like suicide, until a second girl disappears. This time, the message is sent directly to the Metropolitan Police – and an officer’s younger sister is missing. DS Nasreen Cudmore and journalist Freddie Venton will stop at nothing to find her. But whoever’s behind the notes is playing a deadly game of hide and seek – and the clock is ticking. YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO SAVE THE GIRL’S LIFE. MAKE THEM COUNT.     What I say: Freddie and Nas are back.  After their success in catching Apollyon the pair have gone their separate ways, Freddie back to her parents house to recover from her injuries and Nas has moved to another division of the police. Nas receives a Snapchat message threatening the life of her boss’ sister.  It becomes apparent that the death of another young girl was in fact murder despite the intial belief that it was suicide.  Nas realises that she needs Freddie’s help and sets off to involve her.  Freddie instantly confirms what Nas had…

What the publisher says: LIKE. SHARE. FOLLOW . . . DIE The ‘Hashtag Murderer’ posts chilling cryptic clues online, pointing to their next target. Taunting the police. Enthralling the press. Capturing the public’s imagination. But this is no virtual threat. As the number of his followers rises, so does the body count. Eight years ago two young girls did something unforgivable. Now ambitious police officer Nasreen and investigative journalist Freddie are thrown together again in a desperate struggle to catch this cunning, fame-crazed killer. But can they stay one step ahead of him? And can they escape their own past? Time’s running out. Everyone is following the #Murderer. But what if he is following you? ONLINE, NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM … What I say: I wasn’t sure what to expect of this book as I hadn’t heard of the writer and I suspected from the tagline that it may not be much of a mystery.  I also thought that perhaps it would turn into a lecture about the evils of the internet and social media. Thankfully I was wrong on both counts.  What this book in fact turned out to be was a cracking read with convincing characters…
