He’s been looking in the windows again. Messing with cameras. Leaving notes.
Supposed to be a refuge. But death got inside.
When Katie Straw’s body is pulled from the waters of the local suicide spot, the police decide it’s an open-and-shut case. A standard-issue female suicide.
But the residents of Widringham women’s refuge where Katie worked don’t agree. They say it’s murder.
Will you listen to them?
Jessica Moor studied English at Cambridge before completing a Creative Writing MA at Manchester University. Prior to this she spent a year working in the violence against women and girls sector and this experience inspired her first novel, Keeper.
What did I think?
Brilliant, something a bit different that worked well. Once I got the hang of how it was written the ‘then’ and ‘now’. Characters were good and a good mix in the refuge maybe more could be said about them and their lives. I would have liked the boyfriend to come to an untimely end but I guess we all want some sort of revenge. This really hits home and might not be right for some that have been in this position but it was a good read and not predictable during most of the book. I look forward to reading Jessica’s next story.
