Tell Me Your Secret By Dorothy Koomson

Tell Me Your Secret‘Tell Me Your Secret’ is the latest book by Dorothy Koomson.

Pieta has a secret. Ten years ago, Pieta was kidnapped by a man calling himself The Blindfolder who said he wouldn’t kill her if she kept her eyes closed for 48 hours. She never told anyone what happened to her, vowing to move on with her life. But when The Blindfolder starts hunting down his past victims, Pieta realises she may finally be forced to tell her deepest secret to stay alive. Jody has a secret. Fifteen years ago, policewoman Jody made a terrible mistake that resulted in a serial killer known as The Blindfolder escaping justice. When Jody discovers journalist Pieta survived an attack by him, she realises she may finally have found a way to catch him. But that would mean endangering at least two innocent people. They kept quiet to protect themselves. Will telling all save or sacrifice each other?

Dorothy Koomson is back with another cracker of a story that really hooked my attention during the Easter holidays.

The story is written through the narrative of journalist Pieta Rawlings and Detective Inspector Jody Foster as they both follow the case of The Blindfolder. A man who kidnaps women and threatens that if they open their eyes, he will kill them. Many years after the attacks, he’s now back claiming the lives of his original victim and DI Foster has been brought in to stop him, unknown to her colleagues, this case means more to her than anyone knows.

Pieta survived her attacked from The Blindfolder, but not a day goes by that she doesn’t think of the nightmare that she experienced. Now a single parent to her son Kodi, the last thing that she wants to be doing is interviewing a victim of The Blindfolder and reliving the nightmare all over again, but when Callie places her trust in Pieta to tell her story, Pieta has no choice but to help with the case.

Like Dorothy’s previous books, this story is a fast paced drama that really hooks the reader in. Both Jody and Pieta, are strong, independent characters who have secrets to hide that are the driving forces behind them catching The Blindfolder. The story is written in past and present tenses and takes the reader back to the moment when Pieta was captured and the torment that she experienced over those terrible days. These scenes make for intense and claustrophobic reading, as Pieta fights for survival.

I really liked Pieta, she’s a remarkable woman who dresses flamboyantly to embrace life much to the annoyance of her little boy, she’s a forgiving and gracious woman, who even though is putting her own life at risk to help others. As she and DI Foster race against time to prevent another killing from happening.

This story is so cunningly written and there’s new twists and drama on every page. At one point, I was convinced that I’d solved it all, only to discover that I was totally wrong, now that’s truly the sign of a great thriller!

A stunningly dramatic and intense story that really pulled me in, with fantastic characters and an unpredictable plot line, ‘Tell Me Your Secret’ is an addictive story that will have you racing through the pages!

You can buy ‘Tell Me A Secret’ from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 27th June 2019.
