Charlotte’s baby is safe. But is she?

When the body of young mother Charlotte Brannon is discovered by her husband in their immaculate, silver bedroom, Detective Natalie Ward is first on the scene. The killer has left a chilling calling card: the word ‘Why?’ written on the wall in blood. 

Determined to find justice, Natalie quickly discovers the husband is hiding a troubled past, and she’s sure the teenage babysitter’s alibi doesn’t quite add up.

But before Natalie can dig deeper, another mother is murdered, her young son left distraught, staring at a fresh ‘who’ scrawled beside her.

Natalie knows it’s only a matter of time before the killer strikes again, but all the key suspects have alibis. It’s her toughest case yet, and with her marriage hanging by a thread, the cracks are beginning to show.

Just when Natalie finds an unsettling clue she thinks could solve the case, another young woman and her baby disappear, and a member of Natalie’s team is put in terrible danger. 

Can Natalie stop this twisted killer and save one of her own before more families are torn apart forever?

Gripping, fast-paced and nail-bitingly tense, this book will send shivers down your spine. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter.

OMG!!! Carol Wyer has done it again with her new series Natalie Ward. What a great read just like the first book in the series. What can I say, this book has it all. Great characters, great story and a great ending that I never saw coming. I’m so looking forward to the next book in this series and to read her Robyn Carter series. Five stars all he way.

Wow wow wow!!! What a book! I got pulled into the story right from page one. The story of Charlotte Brannon being brutally murdered whilst her baby son was in the next room was particularly chilling and started the story off with a bang! I was literally on the edge of my seat by the end of the first few chapters and found myself transfixed at the pace that it moved at. The story was cleverly written with no hint (for me anyway!)of who the killer was until nearing the end. It was a fast paced book with so many twists and turns it made me dizzy! I honestly found myself holding my breath at the end of every chapter! The ending was superb and I really don’t think I will be able to contain myself until Book 3!!
