Willow Walk by S.J.I. Holliday

Willow WalkDescription – When the past catches up, do you run and hide or stand and fight?

When a woman is brutally attacked on a lonely country road by an escaped inmate from a nearby psychiatric hospital, Sergeant Davie Gray must track him down before he strikes again. But Gray is already facing a series of deaths connected to legal highs and a local fairground, as well as dealing with his girlfriend Marie’s bizarre behaviour. As Gray investigates the crimes, he suspects a horrifying link between Marie and the man on the run – but how can he confront her when she’s pushing him away? As a terrified Marie is pulled back into a violent past she thought she’d escaped, she makes an irrevocable decision. And when events come to a head at a house party on Willow Walk, can Gray piece together the puzzle in time to stop the sleepy town of Banktoun being rocked by tragedy once more?

My thoughts – From the author of Black Wood comes the second book in the Banktoun  trilogy Willow Walk and I have to say I’ve still not read the first although it’s been on my kindle since it’s release, I’m bad 😦

Set in the fictional Scottish town of Banktoun Willow Walk opens with a bang, the prologue left me open mouthed and to be honest quite shocked but also desperate to read on. The story has two elements, drugs in the small town and Marie, one of the main characters who has been rebuilding her life in Banktoun. The characters are very realistic and I particularly liked Davie, he’s a good guy.

This isn’t a book for the faint hearted and I was often found holding my breathe while reading but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The letters particularly gave me the shivers and I found myself jumping at little noises in the house. Full of darkness, menace and obsession this is a book you wont want to pass on.

Willow Walk can easily be read as a standalone book and I can highly recommend it even if . I’m really looking forward to see what else S.J.I. Holliday has up her sleeve.
