The Sixth Window by Rachel Abbott
THE TRUTH HURTS – BUT LIES ARE DEADLY After eighteen months of grieving for her husband Bernie, killed in a horrific hit and run accident, Natalie Gray has found love with her husband’s best friend - Ed Cooper - and has moved herself and fifteen-year-old daughter, Scarlett, into his home. But Natalie begins to suspect Ed has a dark side - and even darker intentions. Desperate to get her daughter to a place of safety, she and Scarlett move to a new home that holds secrets of its own. But has removing Scarlett from one potential threat placed her in far greater danger? DCI Tom Douglas is also chasing the truth, as his investigation into the suicide of a teenage girl draws him ever closer to Natalie and Scarlett. But will he be too late to protect them from the peril they face, or from the truths that will tear their lives apart? Praise for The Sixth Window ‘I am in awe of Rachel Abbott’s plotting! The Sixth Window is Abbott at her best’ Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner ‘The tension that built throughout this book simply blew me away’ Angela Marsons, author of Silent Scream ‘Masterly and compelling. I couldn't put it down until its heart-stopping conclusion.’ Robert Bryndza author of The Girl in the Ice
About Rachel Abbott
I lived most of life in the north of England, and worked for many years as the managing director of an interactive media company. I wrote every day - everything from creative proposals to user manuals - but most exciting of all was writing interactive dramas - including for the Cluedo (Clue in the US) interactive games. I was fortunate enough to sell my company in 2000 and we moved to Italy where we bought and restored an old country house. I have just released my seventh novel The Sixth Window and now share my time between our homes in Italy and Alderney in the Channel Islands, where I write full time. Find out more on my website.
A sensitive and totally engaging approach to a dark and difficult subject was maintained throughout, which left me guessing right with more twists and turns that I could throw a corkscrew at. The tension didn't let up even at the end, so my appetite for reading suspense thriller genre was more than satiated. Another winner from Rachel Abbott.
