She knows there’s a killer on the loose.
But no-one believes her.
Will she be next?

Hannah had a normal life – a loving husband, a good job. Until she did something shocking.

Now she’s in a psychiatric clinic. It should be a safe place. But patients keep dying.

The doctors say it’s suicide. Hannah knows they’re lying.

Can she make anyone believe her before the killer strikes again?


Hannah led a normal life until one day, everything started to fall to pieces. Now she’s in a psychiatric clinic. But when two of her friends die and it is said they committed suicide, Hannah knows she’s being lied to. Nobody believes her though and time is running out.

Tammy Cohen’s writing is so incredibly beautiful and strong  that I soon found myself completely engrossed in this brilliantly woven and intricate plot. So much so that it wasn’t until I closed the book that I realised I hadn’t been taking any notes to help me in writing my review.

The author doesn’t rely on all the tricks of the trade, dazzling the reader with a multitude of twists and turns, and she doesn’t need to. That’s not to say there aren’t any twists. Of course there are! But they’re done masterfully and as you get to know the various characters, they actually make sense as opposed to the ones that come out of nowhere like a bolt of lightning.

Delving into the human psyche in an environment like a psychiatric clinic, where every single person is dealing with mental health issues, was already compelling enough on its own. But adding a mystery and a long list of potential suspects brought the story to a whole other level. Is it a member of staff? Is it a client? Is it someone else entirely? Or is Hannah just paranoid? I have unholy love for an author who can keep me guessing like this. While I had an inkling halfway through the book that I knew what was going on, I never felt quite secure in my belief. As it turns out, I was only half right and there was a part near the end that made my jaw drop so hard I think my chin hit the floor.

My list of go-to authors continues to grow at a terrifying pace as I now also add Tammy Cohen and I’m confident that no matter which genre she writes in, I’ll be first in line.

Many thanks to the publisher for my copy, which I received via Netgalley and chose to review honestly!

    She really is a wonderful author and on my go-to list as well! We had a slightly different experience here but I guess that’s because I knew too soon who it was. Excellent review Dee!
