Genre: Psychological Thriller

A gripping psychological thriller with chilling twists, from a unique new voice.

Keller Baye and Rebecca Brown live on different sides of the Atlantic. Until she falls in love with him, Rebecca knows nothing of Keller. But he’s known about her for a very long time, and now he wants to destroy her.

This is the story of two families. One living under the threat of execution in North Carolina. The other caught up in a dark mystery in the Scottish Highlands. The families’ paths are destined to cross. But why? And can anything save them when that happens?

About the Author:

Jenny Morton Potts is a novelist, screenplay writer and playwright.  After a series of 'proper jobs', she realised she was living someone else's life and escaped to Gascony to make gites.  Knee deep in cement and pregnant, Jenny was happy.  Then autism and a distracted spine surgeon wiped out the order.  She returned to England, to write her socks off.  Jenny would like to see the Northern Lights but worries that's the best bit and should be saved til last.  Very happily, and gratefully, settled with family.  She tries not to take herself too seriously.

My Thoughts:

Potts takes us on a journey through Rebecca and Keller's lives.  Through intricate back stories, we learn of their families, their own pasts and how they end up intersecting.  For me, the beginning was a bit slow in starting and wasn't quite grasping my interest.  Keller's journey to becoming a killer was quite more interesting than Rebecca's back story.  But once the story starts to mesh together, it takes off.  

The concept of this book is fantastic.  While the writing felt choppy in certain areas, long winded in others, I think the fully fleshed out back stories were necessary to really get to the full circle towards the ending.  For thriller lovers, the slow start may deter you.  Power through.  The ending will surprise you.  

I think there will be a bit of a divide in thriller lover's opinions on this one.  But that's what happens when a unique voice enters the genre.  I'm a bit torn.  Love the concept and twists but it didn't quite grip me or keep me glued to the pages as I had hoped that it would.  Certainly intrigued enough to want to see what else Potts brings our way.  I mean, who doesn't love a psychological thriller with a bit of a warped love story? 😉
