About the Book

When the plane crashed, 160 people perished. Now, is someone killing off the survivors?

Five years ago, a horrific airline disaster made headlines around the world. On the anniversary of the fatal crash, a number of those who were spared gather to mark the occasion. By morning, Nick Gilbert, a celebrity chef and one of the party, lies dead. Detective Rachel Lewis leads the investigation and within days another survivor is stabbed to death. It seems certain that a killer is targeting the lucky eight.

Clodagh Kinsella recovered from the injuries she sustained in the crash, but lost her sister that day. The bereavement shared by Clodagh and her sister’s husband led them to a romance of their own. Yet lately, Clodagh knows something isn’t right. As the noose tightens on the group and Rachel comes across more questions than answers, it’s only a matter of time before Clodagh will have to face the consequences of a mistake she made before the plane went down…

A tense and gripping crime thriller, perfect for fans of Lesley Kara and Mari Hannah.

My Review

How crazy is it that describing the plane crash and who survives isn’t the plot of a book about survivors of a plane crash? I mean, could there be anything worse than that?

Yes. There can. When there is a murderer that preys on the survivors. How and Why is what this mystery-thriller focuses on. Can you guess who did it? I always think I’m a good guesser but that’s easy to say when I guess pretty much everybody at one point or another during the story! 😊

Are you good at guessing who done it? Give this one a try and let me know if you figured it out.
