About the Book
Sometimes your first love won’t let you go…
When Lou Wandsworth ran away to France with her teacher Mike Hughes, she thought he was the love of her life. But Mike wasn’t what he seemed and he left her life in pieces.
Now 32, Lou discovers that he is involved with teenager Chloe Meadows. Determined to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself, she returns home to confront him for the damage he’s caused.
But Mike is a predator of the worst kind, and as Lou tries to bring him to justice, it’s clear that she could once again become his prey…
The million copy Sunday Times bestseller returns with a gripping psychological thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat.
The police station car park is full so Ben has to park several streets away, on a busy road. He didn’t put up an argument when I suggested we come in his car. In fact he said, ‘Of course. I’m more than happy to drive.’ At least this way he won’t be stranded when I don’t come back out.
He unclips his seat belt and puts a hand to the door handle. ‘You ready?’
‘Actually, Ben, I’m going to go in alone if that’s okay.’
‘What?’ His face falls.
‘Please,’ I beg. ‘I really need you to stay here.’
‘But I’ve got the photos on my phone. I was the one she contacted. They’ll need to speak to us both.’
He looks so confused, it’s killing me. All I’ve done since we met is put him through shit and now I’m doing it again. I should have started an argument with him last night and sent him away but I wanted to spend one last night with him. I wanted to feel cared for. I wanted to feel normal.
Oh. I don’t know about you, but that’s got me intrigued. If you’d like to read more then you can find yourself a copy of The Fear at the following retailers:
