Daisey Garrett wakes up in a hospital bed. She remembers her boyfriend has left her for another woman, but she doesn’t remember what happened to her the night she was attacked in her own home.


Daisey shouldn’t be alive but against all odds, she’s survived an ordeal most would never recover from.


But Daisey’s mind is broken. She’s on edge, drinking too much and, despite the painful breakup, finds herself in bed with her ex, Luke. And while she desperately tries to keep herself together, she can’t shake the feeling that she is being watched.


Yet the missing pieces of that fateful summer night are beginning to surface…


The lies she told the police.


The lies Luke told her.


Daisey’s memory is flickering like a faulty light bulb, flashing with images just out of reach.


She can’t remember. She mustn’t.


An absolutely gripping, addictive page-turner, The Woman Inside takes you within the tangled mess of people’s lives and the dark secrets they hold close. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Before I Go to Sleep and The Wife Between Us.

It’s hard to imagine how frightening it would be to wake up in hospital in both physical and emotional pain. Knowing that when you do go home the one support you are used to counting on isn’t there anymore, that relationship is gone. But lucky for Daisy she has her new found friend and housemate Iris who is going to help her through working out what happened that fateful night. Or will she? The fourth book in the Detective Dan Riley series, that can easily be read as a stand-alone. takes the reader on one wild ride. Full of so much tension and suspense, I was on the edge of my seat, completely addicted and hooked to see how this was all going to unfold. The plot pulled me in and Anna-Lou Weatherley does a great job of making you feel involved in the story. I was stuck to Dan’s side throughout as I tried to solve case with him. Each twist and turn had me gasping for breath and left me with a pounding heart as I furiously flicked the pages in our race to catch the killer! Even though I had only read the third book in the series before this one, I really love Dan’s character. He left a lasting impression on me and I enjoyed getting to know him that bit more this time round. The other cast of characters are well developed and written and I loved how Anna-Lou Weatherley takes the reader deep into the killers mind. A great job has been done and with sensitivity on the subject of mental illness. I enjoy Anna-Lou Weatherley’s engaging storytelling and she knows exactly how to grab the readers attention right from the get go, never letting up until the final page. If life had not rudely got in the way whilst reading this, I would have easily been able to read this in one sitting. The Woman Inside is a chilling police procedural crossed with a psychological thriller that is a real page turner. A throughly enjoyable and entertaining read, I look forward to seeing what Anna-Lou Weatherley will have in store for Detective Dan Riley next! It was a pleasure to read and review The Woman Inside which I recommend.

A serial murder is wrecking havoc. When one of his victims is found alive, the police think they can finally solve the identity of the killer. Unfortunately the victim, Daisy, can’t remember anything from that night. As everyone searches for clues, mysteries start to unravel. For me this book was about the ‘why’ and not the ‘who’ of the serial murderer. I figured out fairly early in the book who he was or at least who had a connection to him. The book was then learning about why and how the person became who he was.

The Woman Inside is a fast paced psychological thriller that does not disappoint. Dan Riley (fourth in the series) is determined to find out who the serial killer is that is killing women, posing them and leaving a rose on their body. He feels he has a chance now that Daisey was attacked and she managed to survive even if she can't remember who attacked her and left her for dead. Can Daisey remember? Will the killer go after her again in case she does.. I yelled at Daisey, I cried with her and I cheered her on. Poor Daisey. I am a big fan of Dan Riley, his character gets more depth with every book and I would so want him on my side if the need arose. I will be at the front of the line for Book 5 in the series.
