About this ebook

WOW! WOW! WOW! I LOVED this FABULOUS thriller … I was hooked from the start! There were twists and turns and moments when my stomach churned and if I could have and read it in one go I certainly would have done.’ Goodreads Reviewer


Murky water sloshed through the gaps in the jetty’s algae-covered planks. Electricity ran down her spine. The victim’s torso was missing circles of flesh. Jess had seen marks like this before a long time ago. But that killer was already dead, wasn’t he?


When the lifeless body of a young woman is found washed up in the blisteringly hot back waters of a small town, Detective Jess Bishop knows for certain this isn’t the murderer’s first kill.

Two other bodies have been found, both bearing the same marks. Marks that strike fear into Jess’s heart. They are identical to those from a case she’s spent her entire career trying to forget.

As Jess and her team try to link the victims, another body is discovered, and they fear the serial killer is taunting them. They know it’s only a matter of time before he kills again.

As the body count rises, and the hunt goes cold, Jess knows she has to confront her past in order to catch the killer, even if that means making herself the bait…


Forget Me Not is a gripping and heart-stopping thriller full of twists and perfect for fans of Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter, Robert Bryndza and Lisa Gardner.

‘This book deserves all the #OMFGs as it grabbed me in from the start, chewed me up and spat me out at the other end crying for more! … Tense and fast-paced, and may I say perfectly executed, the plot kept me on tenterhooks all the way through it! … So many twists, turns and red herrings that you are going to be twisted like a corkscrew by the time you put this book down! … A read that will pick away at your brains and leave you reeling! Do not miss it!’ Chapter in My Life


Wow, talk about an intense ride. I absolutely fell in love with Jess Bishop I can't wait to get my hands on the next book … Kierney Scott is clearly one of if not the best crime thriller authors of our time.’ Goodreads Reviewer


Brilliant, can’t wait for book 2!! I can’t believe this is Kierney Scott’s first crime novel. It’s brilliantly crafted to keep you guessing with enough gore and bodies for any crime fiction fan.’ Crime Book Junkie


Oh, I am hooked on Jessica Bishop! My kind of female character...clever, stubborn, different and an FBI agent to boot.’ Goodreads Reviewer

‘I couldn’t put it down. Kierney Scott kept me guessing the whole way through and made me gasp when the pieces all started to fit together.The Girl with all the Books

Captivating, thrilling, mysterious, and an overall great read and fantastic start to a new series. I'll definitely be coming back for book two!’ Goodreads Reviewer

Twice I thought I had the killer nailed but then something else would happen and I would second guess myself, I love that!’ Not Another Book Blogger


I read the whole thing in one sitting. Bring on book two and let's see what else life can throw at this FBI agent.’ Goodreads Reviewer


A fast thrilling serial killer book! This book has everything what I want in my book.’ Goodreads Reviewer


What I liked most about this thriller is that the main character Jess Bishop is extremely flawed, the most flawed detective since Sherlock Holmes himself. Even better, she’s female. With a love of strong red wine, an attitude to kick ass and a slight sex addiction, I absolutely loved Jess Bishop.’ Life Has a Funny Way of Sneaking Up on You

FBI Special Agent Jessica Bishop has a secret past that most people don't know. While investigating female bodies found dismembered and headless, the similarities between them and her past are troubling, to say the least. It's been many years and she still has panic attacks thinking about the pain and humiliation she suffered as a child. The nightmares are coming nightly. Her best friend and partner, Jamison, had more or less deserted her. He left some time ago to work undercover ... but now he's back and has secrets of his own. As more women disappear and bodies are later found, Jess and Jamison are in a race to find the killer before anyone else disappears. But are the personal issues between the two of them blinding Jess to the danger which is much closer than she thinks? I normally like flawed characters, but Jess seems to go a step beyond. I can't imagine that the FBI or any law enforcement would not require some therapy for Jess ... especially as she carries a gun and comes across as unstable at times. Jamison is also not without a secretive past flaws of his own. I liked Chan, Jess' partner while Jamison was gone. He's not the nicest person around, but he comes across as more credible than the others. The ending was well done and came as an explosive surprise. I look forward to reading the next book featuring Jessica ....CROSS YOUR HEART. Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / Netgalley for the digital copy of this Romantic Suspense. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own. 3.5 Stars
