Elodie Harper employs her journalistic background to great effect by breathing life into her gritty news reporter protagonist as she pursues a terrifying serial killer in East Anglia. Frankie's investigations lead her into increasing levels of danger including the menacing attentions of a rabidly misogynistic blogger, a warped advocate of the so-called men's rights movement. A highly-charged and topical thriller.
The danger feels real in this young-women-in-peril gripper.
Riveting and scarily believable, THE DEATH KNOCK left me gasping for air.
Well plotted and well written.
Gripping, chilling and physically impossible to put down. She scares me. But I loved every second of it.
Haunting and wonderfully written.
I tore through this book, my heart hammering with Ava's and my head pounding with Frankie's. Fast-paced, unpredictable, and disturbingly real, THE DEATH KNOCK reminds us at every turn what is so frightening about that which is so immediate. Do not flip the page without keeping one eye on the last!
Chilling, intelligent, and highly addictive. Superb.
The author's journalistic experience adds authenticity to a gruesome chiller with a killer so creepy you'll be double-locking your door.
This book is so scarily realistic with a chilling plot and vivid, likeable protagonists. Very clever! This should be on TV. Warning though - it will keep you awake at night! I couldn't put it down.
Gripping and suspenseful.
From the first page, you have a sense of the harsh realities a journalist must face, but more than that Elodie Harper takes you into the mind of not only the victim, but the killer too, with convincing chilling clarity.
