This is one of those rare psychological novels that will not frighten you--until you start thinking. It is laid back and could actually happen to any of us--you know--those little things that keep happening but don't quite add up and individually don't amount to much and can be shrugged off. Well, that is what happens to Cassandra Potter. She decided to take an extended vacation in the remote Scottish Highlands in her recently deceased sister's cottage to re group and get herself back to her normal self.
Memories of an awkward and not very happy childhood are hidden deep in her psyche--her sister (whom she had never known) had recently died before Cassandra could really get to know her. Her new neighbors are taciturn and not all that friendly--well there are one or two--but which one of them wants her gone so badly that they start small fires-enter her cottage and make off with objects and watch her from a distance?
You will have to read this novel to find out the answer to that question. And once again, as with the other Faith Mortimer Psychological Thrillers-- the answer will elude you until it is revealed.
About the Book: (from Amazon)
Cassandra Potter; is hiding from the memories of two recent and traumatic deaths. But one day she makes the mistake of walking alone on Devil’s Brae. A mountain in the stark wild of the Scottish Highlands.
The beautiful country seems empty, stretching for miles in every direction, but it is then she sees him. A dark brooding figure, standing motionless, watching as Cassandra climbs the brae.
That first time Cassandra ignores the watcher, until the next time and it is then she first realizes her mistake. Someone wishes her gone from the village – at all costs.
No one believes her story—not the police, not the neighbours, and especially not her friends. When she suspects someone is lying to her, Cassandra is forced to retrace her past, following in her own footsteps to find the truth and stay alive. But who is following Cassandra? Is murder in their uppermost thoughts?
On Devil's Brae...You never know who's out there.
