Synopsis:
A complex game of cat and mouse in the seedy streets of Nottingham ends in death. Young artist Mia Jackson is compelled to watch the posthumous video diaries of Jack Flood – controversial bad boy of the London art world and convicted serial killer. Can Mia allow Drake Gallery to show Aftermath in their retrospective of his work? Muse or victim, why was she allowed to survive?

 

Review:

I was pleasantly surprised by this gripping thriller. There is a strong female lead in Mia, who tells her story by alternating between present day and her memories of her encounters with Jack Flood.

 

I read this in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down without finding out more! The author's intelligent writing, combined with intriguing characters and a compelling plot grabbed my attention from the outset and rendered me unable to sleep until I reached the end of the book. Jaq Hazell is one to watch.

 

Thanks to Jaq Hazell for providing a digital copy in return for my honest review.
