Official Blurb:

There’s a body in the woods. At least, there was. Eleanor Blackwood saw it on her morning run: a young woman, strangled to death.
But the police can find nothing—no body, no sign of a crime—and even Ellie has to wonder if it was a trick of her mind, a gruesome vision conjured up by grief. It’s eighteen years to the day since she witnessed her own mother’s murder on the same woodland spot. But what if she really did see what she thinks she saw? What if the body was left there for Ellie alone to find?
And there’s one detail Ellie can’t shake: a deliberate number three on the dead woman’s forehead. When she discovers a second body, this one bearing the number two, Ellie is convinced they are not messages but threats. The killer is on a countdown: but who is girl number one?

My Thoughts:

A real spine-chilling psychological thriller. You don’t know who to trust or when another dead body could turn up!
A really easy unputdownable book, you just keep turning those pages as you want to know who the killer was. I guessed who her mum’s killer was, but I didn’t for the life of me guess the final outcome, it was quite shocking.
The only thing that let it down a little for me was the main protagonist, Eleanor. She was a little annoying as she wasn’t taking the threat against her life seriously. She wasn’t scared enough! I understand she was trying not to look crazy, but she could have still been scared. That is the only criticism I have for the book though, as otherwise, it was really well written, and kept you guessing at every turn.
