“Look after your daughter’s things. And your daughter…”
When a stranger asks Jo Blackmore for a lift she says yes, then swiftly wishes she hadn’t.The stranger knows Jo’s name, she knows her husband Max and she’s got a glove belonging to Jo’s two year old daughter Elise.
What begins with a subtle threat swiftly turns into a nightmare as the police, social services and even Jo’s own husband turn against her.
No one believes that Elise is in danger. But Jo knows there’s only one way to keep her child safe – RUN.
I need to start off by saying this book was terrifyingly good! I love a good psychological thriller and I’ve read Cally’s books before so I knew The Escape wasn’t going to disappoint.
In The Escape we have Jo Blackmore who is a Wife and a Mother, is asked for a lift from a stranger at first she is very unsure that she should however she gives in and let’s the stranger in her car only then she turns nasty and threatens Jo that her husband Max should give something back which doesn’t belong to him… It soon escalates into a nightmare with the police and everyone not believing Jo when things happen in their family home..
As soon as I started reading I knew I wasn’t going to be able to put the book down, i was hooked within the first two chapters. You have chapters from the mother Jo Blackmore then the odd chapter from the person who seems to be out to destroy Jo, which keeps you guessing throughout the book who it could be and leaves you terrified.
Cally really knows how to get her readers hooked into her books, leaving them wanting to really know whats happening, even trying to judge who the person could be throughout the book. Cally’s style of writing is fantastic and i am huge fan of her books.I would highly recommend her books to all my friends & family.
I give the Escape 5 star rating for being amazingly terrifying and keeping me gripped all the way to the end.
