Review: The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher

Emily’s dad is accused of murdering a teenage girl. Emily is sure he is innocent, but what happened that night in the woods behind their house where she used to play as a child? Determined to find out, she seeks out Damon Hillary the enigmatic boyfriend of the murdered girl. He also knows these woods. Maybe they could help each other. But he’s got secrets of his own about games that are played in the dark.

A new psychological thriller from the award-winning and bestselling author of STOLEN and FLYAWAY.

My Thoughts
A really compelling read which I thoroughly enjoyed.

The Killing Woods is the latest offering from Lucy Christopher, an author whose debut novel Stolen I loved, and quite honestly I have been desperate to get my hands on a copy for a while now. I'm glad to report it lived up my increasingly high expectations.

I won't say too much as the story because I don't want to spoil it at all but I will say it kept me guessing throughout and I loved how the story twisted and turned as it progressed. I loved the main character Emily and was fascinated with her story as her world fell down around her. It was really telling when you looked at the role the press played in making the situation she was dealing with so much worse.

A fascinating novel about trust and loyal and believing in your own convictions.
