Where to begin on this review...... Oh Lord I LOVED IT! I love suspense and thrillers but put them both together and I am in heaven. Kieran Scott knows how to grab you and keep you reading. Just when you think you have figured out what is going on and who is doing it you are surprised because it is not that person. I was literally at the edge of the bed reading and gasping because I had it all wrong! Lord K. Scott you did a great job writing this book and I will re-read it over and over again.
Callie and her friends Penelope and Lissa are going on a camping trip. It is supposed to be an all girls camping trip but Callie's boyfriend Jeremy joins then and Lissa is not happy about it. As they walk on the trip to find the campsite they hear strange noises and feel like they are being watched. Then a dead body is discovered and everyone is in shock and scared and wanting to go home but it seems like the killer has different plans for them. It becomes a cat and mouse chase and you don't know who it is until the end and you will be rocked to your reading core.
Who is the killer? Why are killing them off? Who will be left standing at the end of the trip? This is a killer story and I can't wait for you to enjoy it as I did.
