Book: I am here to kill you
Author: Chris Westlake
Publication date: 31st December 2020
Genre: psychological thriller
Charming. Charismatic. Beautiful.
The members of a local support group in a sleepy welsh town are captivated by the new arrival, Sheena Strachan. Each member of the group has a reason for attending. Some hide dark, sinister secrets, and for others it is the highlight of their week.
But what are Sheena’s motives for attending?
The group’s leader, Rose, unexpectedly stops attending meetings. She goes into hiding, and quickly becomes an outcast. And then she is arrested for her estranged husband’s murder.
Did Sheena really have no involvement in his killing?
With Sheena at the helm, the group goes from strength to strength, both in numbers and commitment. But their behaviour is changing. No story is to leave the room. They trust nobody. Men are the enemy. The residents of the previously peaceful town start turning against each other.
Was this Sheena’s plan all along?
One mystery, however, stands out more than all the others.
Who is here to kill who…?
I AM HERE TO KILL YOU is a compelling psychological thriller that explores the potential power and devastation of manipulation.
Many months ago I agreed to take part in this blog tour and do you think I could remember what this book was about before starting my read? Nope. I had no idea about what this book was about at all.
We follow a plethora of characters throughout this story which change perspectives seamlessly throughout each chapter. All of these different character narratives were very different from one another and also played a vital role throughout this story.
I really enjoyed following each character even though at times I found myself forgetting who’s perspective I was in at the time.
This is a very character driven story where one woman arrives to town and shakes things up and what the other characters do in relation to that.
Throughout this story I couldnt help but admire and love how empathetic the author is towards woman and really understood woman while writing those perspectives.
As we delve deeper into the plot things become a lot of darker which many twists and turns throughout.
This was a great dark read for those who are looking for a little shiver of horror!
