Blog Tour Book Review / Come a Little Closer by Rachel Abbott

They will be coming soon. They come every night.

Snow is falling softly as a young woman takes her last breath.

Fifteen miles away, two women sit silently in a dark kitchen. They don’t speak, because there is nothing left to be said.

Another woman boards a plane to escape the man who is trying to steal her life. But she will have to return, sooner or later.

These strangers have one thing in common. They each made one bad choice - and now they have no choices left. Soon they won’t be strangers, they’ll be family…

When DCI Tom Douglas is called to the cold, lonely scene of a suspicious death, he is baffled. Who is she? Where did she come from? How did she get there?

How many more must die? Who is controlling them, and how can they be stopped?

Normally, I don't like to start reading a series from the middle.  Always starting from book 1.   I made an exception here because this book just sounded so good.    Although I would imagine I would get a lot more out of this book had I read the first few books in this series, I had no trouble picking it up, learning all the characters (some of whom I assume are the 'regulars' in the series) and following the plot.  I liked how the author changed character perspectives on most chapters, that was one of the reasons why it was easy to follow because of the reasons above and because there are quite a few characters in this story.   We follow the detectives investigating a murder, a woman who is a trapped somewhere, a woman who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and a woman who has had a run of bad luck and looks to some newly found friends for help. 

A very creepy novel that really highlights the fact that you should really not trust anybody apart from your nearest and dearest!
