Synopsis:

A shocking discovery.
An island wrapped in secrets.

A tiny island community is stunned by the discovery of a long-buried body.

For Stella Harvey the news is doubly shocking. The body has been found in the garden of her childhood home – the home her family fled without explanation twenty-five years ago.

Now, questioning her past and desperate to unearth the truth, Stella returns to the isolated island. But she quickly finds that the community she left isn’t as welcoming as she remembers – and that people in it will go to any length to protect their secrets.

One thing rings true…
You can’t bury the truth forever.


Review:

Ominous, suspenseful, and engrossing!

Come Back For Me is an atmospheric, tortuous, character-driven thriller that takes us into the life of Stella Harvey, a young woman who returns to the island her family hastily left one stormy night when she was a child after a body buried for 25 years is discovered just outside the home she grew up in.

The writing is taut and intense. The characters are troubled, consumed, and multilayered. And the plot using a past/present, back-and-forth style unravels and intertwines into a compelling tale full of deception, manipulation, familial drama, swirling emotions, mayhem, violence, and murder.

Overall, Come Back For Me is a well crafted, dark, sophisticated, cunning tale by Perks that highlights the intricate, complex, and dynamic bonds that can exist between family and friends and reminds us that skeletons often find their way to the surface no matter how well they are hidden or buried.

Synopsis:

You have it all. Success. A beautiful home. A happy family.

And then in a heartbeat it’s all gone.

Your daughter has been taken. And the people who have her will kill her if you involve the police. You can’t rely on anyone, not even your husband. Because it seems you have enemies too.

But remember, they can see you. And they know everything about you. Including secrets you’d hoped you’d buried in the distant past.

You can be certain of only two things: that you will do anything to get your daughter back alive. And that time is running out…


Review:

Menacing, twisty, and meticulous!

We Can See You is a highly suspenseful, character-driven, domestic thriller that brings a mother’s worst nightmare to life and explores the terror, chaos, and distress a ruthless kidnapper with forensic savvy and eyes everywhere can wreak.

The writing is taut and sharp. The characters are tenacious, consumed, and multifaceted. And the high-intensity plot quickly unfolds into a tangled web of danger, angst, fear, manipulation, panic, instinct, jealousy, deception, kidnapping, violence, and murder.

Overall, We Can See You is an intricately woven, vengeful, cunning mystery that has a nice sense of urgency, palpable anguish, great pace, and enough twists to keep you guessing until the very last page.

Synopsis:

SHE WAS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. AND NOW SHE’S MISSING.

She’s playing at the school fete with your children. You pull out your phone, scroll through Facebook, and look up again.
NOW YOU DON’T

Charlotte is looking after her best friend’s daughter the day she disappears. She thought the little girl was playing with her own children. She swears she only took her eyes off them for a second.

Now, Charlotte must do the unthinkable, tell her best friend Harriet that her only child is missing. The child she was meant to be watching.

Devastated, Harriet can no longer bear to see Charlotte. No one could expect her to trust her friend again.

Only now she needs to. Because two weeks later Harriet and Charlotte are both being questioned separately by the police. And secrets are about to surface.

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO PUT THINGS RIGHT?


Review:

Sophisticated, riveting, and chillingly plausible!

Now You See Her is a highly suspenseful, character-driven thriller that delves into the psychological and emotional devastation caused by a missing child and the resulting finger-pointing, fragility and dynamics between friends, family members, investigators, and the community at large.

The writing is clear and precise. The characters are complex, secretive, and troubled. And the plot told from dual point of views and alternating timelines, before-and-after the incident, ratchets up the intrigue and tension quickly as it twists, turns, and unravels all the motivations, actions, personalities, and relationships within it.

Now You See Her at its core is a novel about family, friendship, fear, secrets, manipulation, negligence, abuse, kidnapping, and murder. It’s a gripping, uniquely-written tale that highlights everything is not always as it seems and is a real page-turner you won’t want to miss.
