This is not your baby. You wake up alone after an emergency caesarean, dying to see your child. But when you are shown the infant, you just know . . . This baby is not yours. No one believes you. They say you're delusional, confused, dangerous. But you're a doctor . . . Do you trust yourself? Because you know only one thing - You must find your baby.
Mine: Someone's stolen your baby. But no one believes you.
I was looking forward to this book, it really did sound interesting.
This book is a little dark and full on in parts, so it's not for the faint hearted or squeamish.
What it is thought is a damn good read, that hooks you, until that last page. You want, You need to know what is happening next.
Waking up after a cesarean section, Sasha wants to see her baby, her beautiful baby. This baby that is going to put so many things right, this baby that is her and her husband Mark's future.
When she finally gets taken to the baby unit to see her tiny little bundle, something is wrong, Sasha is adamant that this is not her baby. Everyone around her seems to think she's losing the plot, doesn't know what she's talking about. But to Sasha she really does feel something is wrong. It's a journey of finding out who you can trust, who will listen to you.
Now this is one of those books that saying anymore would give far to much away. Can you imagine though what it must feel like to finally meet your baby and convince yourself that it's not yours. Then trying to convince others, without them feeling you haven't lost the plot.
This book really is a thought provoking, emotional and yet tense read, all at the same time.
I found myself thinking of this book way after i'd finished it. Thinking how would I react, how would I cope, what I would have done differently.
Great read, highly recommended.
In the small village of Cold Christmas there's a church that faces the wrong way . . . What has it to do with the three dead men found in a London flat?
DCI Antonia Hawkins has a killer to catch. Only she can't predict what is waiting for her at the end of the chase.
Nobody remembers the young men entering the abandoned London flat a few weeks ago. Nobody cares if they left.
Until the unbearable smell of decay.
DCI Antonia Hawkins is called in to view the dead men; three, lying neat in a row. There's no damage to the bodies, no obvious cause of death. Is this a suicide pact? Or is that just how it's meant to look?
If there is a link between the three very different men then Hawkins needs to find it, and fast. Because unless she does, more are going to die. And they might not all be strangers.
Well well, here I am after playing catch up, finally up to date with this series. I have to say I have really enjoyed reading books 2, 3 and 4 back to back. It's been great spending some time with Antonia Hawkins and I really feel I have gotten to know her now.
I just can't believe how this book ended. Bad Alastiar Gunn. I didn't see that comming.
I could happily dive right into book 5 NOW, so please Mr Gunn, don't make me wait to long. lol
I felt throughout this book that your attention was really peaked, it's one of those just one more page, just one more chapter.
If you have seen any of my other reviews recently you will know I have really been enjoying getting to know Antonia Hawkins and just when I thought things could slowly slowly be getting on track for her, and her future looking a little better, BOOM. The author throws in something that totally took me by suprise. I guess in hindsight I could say, I saw this coming, buy by god, I didn't.
A brilliantly clever end to the book that leaves you gasping for more.
Antonia Hawkins and her team are off again on yet another new case, another case to drive them mad, another case to get stuck into and forget that the real world outside of the police doesn't exist, at least until the case is solved for Antonia there is no other world other than the police.
When the bodies of 3 men are found together, with no apparent cause of death it's a case that has got the whole team baffled. As more deaths follow it's a race against time to try and figure out what the hell is going on.
A very well written book, this one I think is my favorite so far in this series.
Have yourself a Merry Killer Christmas and get stuck into this book.
The Keeper (Detective Inspector Antonia Hawkins)
