About The Book

You need to kill at least three people, right? So that’s what I’ll do. When Will jokes about becoming a serial killer, his friends just laugh it off. But
Adeline can’t help but feel there’s something more sinister lurking behind his words.
Fifteen years later, Adeline returns to Blythe for a reunion of the old gang – except Will doesn’t show up. Reminiscing about old times, they look up the details of his supposed murder spree. But the mood soon changes when they discover two recent deaths that match.
As the group attempts to track Will down, they realise that he is playing a sinister game that harks back to one they used to play as kids. Only this time there are lives at stake . . .

My Thoughts

What would you do if you suspect that one of your old friends is a serial killer?
This is the story of Adeline who will return to her childhood’s village for a high school reunion and when she meets her old gang one of them is missing. And as they started to remember their time together, some stood up on their mind; he planned the perfect way to being a serial killer without being noticed. It seemed a joke in that moment, but now some people are appearing dead and he is missing like he said… Could it be a book more intriguing and dark? Because the joke didn’t end here, he said that the last victims should be one of them, one of the group of friends. So, who would be able to stop the killer before is too late?
The story is told between the past; with the memories of all the friends, showing their real character and all the secrets between them. While on the present we will follow the friends investigating the murders and trying to discern who would be the next victim. Or if they are seeing ghosts where there aren’t… What do you think?
This had been a twisted and gripping story; the characters are interesting and they are keeping a few secrets hidden to surprise the reader, of course!
I would not like to be on the skin of these friends, trying to discover if one of their oldest friend is a murderer. They have to accept that he was a little bit weird, but there’s a big step between being weird and being a killer, don’t you think?
So, be prepared for an original story that will make you to keep reading till the end of the book!
