Land of the Living by Nicci French

Land of the Living

Nicci French

Once started I had to keep reading this book. The need to know the outcome for Abbie, the girl alone and at the centre of a nightmare experience, made it difficult to put down.


'Because of what you say ...I mean, from what you say, he must be out there, and he knows that you're out there, so what are you going to do?' I took another sip of coffee. this was the question that my brain had been screaming at me and that I had been trying to ignore. 'I don't know.' I said 'Hide. What else can I do?'
