The Last Stage by Louise Voss
About The Book
At the peak of her career as lead singer ofa legendary 1980s indie band, Meredith Vincent was driven off the international stage by a horrific incident. Now she lives incognito in a cottage on the grounds of Minstead House, an old stately home, whilst working in the gift shop. Her past is behind her and she enjoys her new life.
But a series of inexplicable and unsettling incidents have started to happen around her – broken china, vandalised gardens… And when a body is found in the gardens of Minstead House, Meredith realises that someone is watching, someone who knows who she is and who wants to destroy her…
Did you know that vengeance is better served cold? This is the story of Meredith who had been living in fear half of her life. In the past someone attacked her and now it seems that is back, why? And is she safe now?
Meredith was the singer of a top band when she was young, now she is scared if someone recognises her. But she is happy now living in the anonymity, she has a job she loves, has her beloved brother near her and has some good friends. Sadly, after a call strange things start to happen… She will try not to pay attention to them when one of her friends appear dead, she can only thing that is her fault!
This had been a slow burning thriller, with some flashbacks from the past and the story told between different characters, makes the story more amend and interesting. And of course, you don’t know who is the culprit till the end!
Meredith is not a Saint, there were some possible candidates to become the “intruder” and I was trying to discover the truth before the end but I didn’t succeed! I was hopping for a motive a little bit darker, but sometimes the important part is not the motive but the vengeance per se!
If you are looking for a quick read mystery that will keep you interested since the first page this is your read! I am sure that it will the perfect friend for this summer!
