Publisher's Summary

The terrifying sequel to the number-one best seller The Magpies.

Five years ago Jamie Knight lost everything: his home, his wife and their unborn child. But at least the woman responsible, 'Dark Angel' Lucy Newton, was in prison, and slowly Jamie was able to rebuild his life.

But now Lucy has been freed on appeal, and before long Jamie receives a message from a desperate stranger. Lucy is up to her old tricks - ruining lives for fun.

Jamie agrees to help. But once again, he has no idea what he is getting himself into....

wow!

Excellent! I could not turn it off. These characters were well developed and the narrator, again, does a wonderful job.

When did Isabel become Sasha?

Excellent story! I re-listened to The Magpies to refresh my memory, before listening to this book. In the first book, Kirsti's daughter was named Isabel. But in this book her daughter is Sasha. Otherwise, I highly recommend!

Slow start, quick finish

It took me soooo long to finish it! Nothing great happens until like chapter 9. Once it did start to get good it ended very quickly, almost like the writer rushed. I also read the second book but it seems like it all should have been apart of the first. Not a terrible srory but not his best. I decided to read this on after reading his new novel The House Guest and now I'm a little disappointed. This book had quiteba few sex scenes as well that I felt were unnecessary.

Predictable

I saw the plot set up a mile away. I wouldn’t say it was bad but def not great.

Kept me Intrigued

Pretty good but would have liked it to be a little longer. Reading the next book in about 5 min, can't wait to see how it all ends.

Exciting Sequel

I highly recommend you read the first book, The Magpies, prior to reading this one. Although it could be a standalone novel, I feel you'd get much more out of it if you read the books in order.

Five years after being tormented by his downstairs neighbors, Jaime finds himself enraged when his tormenter is released from prison. A stranger contacts him claiming that the previous neighbor is now doing the same thing to the stranger. Desperate to help and possibly seek his own revenge, Jaime goes to meet the stranger and discovers his previous neighbor is up to her old tricks again.

This is an excellent sequel to The Magpies, and expands on the original story in delightful yet terrifying ways. I was shocked and delighted to continue the saga of Jamie vs the "Dark Angel" Lucy. Edwards constructed another twisty tale that kept me on the edge of my seat until the end. Although short, this sequel packs a powerful punch! I read it in one night, and I'm thrilled to move on to the final book in this series and am hopeful for an exciting conclusion.
