Publisher's Summary

You don't know him. But he knows you.

Soon he would be able to touch her, to feel the warmth of her blood. And when the time came, nothing would stop him.

As DC Jennifer Knight investigates a routine stabbing in the quiet town of Haven, she is shocked by what seems like a personal message from beyond the grave.

When more bodies are found, Jennifer is convinced the killings are somehow linked. What she discovers is more chilling than she could possibly imagine. The murders mirror those of the notorious Grim Reaper - from over 20 years ago. A killer her mother helped convict.

Jennifer can no longer ignore the personal connection. Is there a copycat killer at work? Was the wrong man convicted? Or is there something more sinister at play?

With her mother's terrifying legacy spiraling out of control, Jennifer must look into her own dark past in a fight not only to stop a killer - but to save herself and those she loves.

A heart-stopping supernatural thriller to engross fans of Rachel Abbott, Paul Finch, and James Oswald.

Fantastic New Dectective Series

I love a whodunit. This book had me guessing every step of the way and the ending was something I didn't see coming. I am hoping that Audible will include the 2nd book in this series (for some reason only the first and third volumes are on Audible).

I'm addicted and hope to listen to more of this author's wonderful story telling.

Emma Newman was excellent as a reader as well. Highly recommend!

intriguing but frustrating

the main character didn't follow through at obvious times she should. that was frustrating. if she had persisted, like the strong person, we hoped she was, she would have gathered more info. I hate knowing more about the character than the the author thinks I should.

Evil

Couldn't finish it.
Too much evil and very scary. Didn't want it in my mind and subconscious.

Great twist on my favorites - serial killers

I was a bit hesitant when I realized there was a paranormal element to this novel. the author does a brilliant job of bringing the demon into modern day England and a contemporary story, without losing our faith. really well done.

Good start!

The story line is a good beginning for a new series. Suspense, police procedural with a dab of the supernatural.

A page turner

If you could sum up Don't Turn Around in three words, what would they be?

Good character development

Who was your favorite character and why?

Will. He was steady and he tried

Have you listened to any of Emma Newman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I have no idea

Any additional comments?

I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. The characters are relatable. The author makes you care about them.

Look Inside.....

What made the experience of listening to Don't Turn Around the most enjoyable?

The way the author switched back and forth between times/ years. I always like that.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Frank definitely, especially when he was a boy!

Which scene was your favorite?

In th boathouse, (probably like most of the readers will!)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"The Grim Reaper"

Any additional comments?

The book started off slow, and actually really didn't get my full attention until 3/4 of the way through, however the ending definitely made up for it. The characters were also very likable.

Chilling and thrilling.

A fast paced and often terrifying tale. Unlike any crime thrillers you would have read before. The past meets the present in a cleverly woven story which lingers in your memory long after the final chapter.
Looking for something thrilling with a paranormal twist? Look no further. The X Files meets Prime Suspect. Truly looking forward to the next instalment by Caroline Mitchell, she certainly knows how to grab the readers attention.

Satisfyingly Creepy

Definitely gave me the heebie-jeebies in places, which is what I look for in a paranormal crime book. The story was good, all be it a touch cliched and predictable occasionally. The involvement of a wee gee board and tarot cards was disappointing. The narration was okay, I ended up listening to it in double time however because it was too slow for my taste. The Irish accent was entertainingly awful! Overall it was a good start to a series with potential, I will read the next instalment.

Detective story of the paranormal.

Written from the author’s personal experience of detective work together with some knowledge of the paranormal world. Would recommend this book to people who are not prone to nightmares. A very good story. Focuses very much on the dark but ends as one would hope.

Waste of good reading time.....

I have listened to many books. Weak narrative and extremely poor narration. I don't leave a story but this was hard going.

A bit different

On reflection, the second time listening through and realising this is a bit different so suspending some disbelief, this book is quite good. I commend the writer for putting this story together so well, don't think it could have been easy or done any better to leave a reveal until the end. A strange murder mystery / detective series with a twist I'm keen to see how the next book shapes up.
