The Killer’s Family by Miranda Smith – review.

Publication date – 31.3


We should never have kept our father’s secret.

Before, my sisters and I were close. Now, a year after our father’s funeral, we barely speak to each other. Molly won’t accept the truth. Rachel can’t forgive him. And I spend all my time digging through his life, trying to understand.

Then we hear the news. A woman has been found by the docks, her wedding ring stolen. The reporter says it appears the local serial killer has returned…

But I know that can’t be right, because I know who the killer was.

Henry Martin. Our father.

Someone is sending us a message. Someone knows we lied.

Now my sisters and I must work together to find out who is targeting us. How do they know what we’ve hidden? What do they want? And what other secrets lie buried in the past, putting us all in danger?

A brilliantly twisty suspense thriller that will have you flying through the pages and gasping at the twist. Fans of Lisa Jewell, Gillian Flynn and Ruth Ware will love The Killer’s Family.

About the author

Miranda Smith writes psychological suspense. She is drawn to stories about ordinary people in extraordinary situations, complicated women and dark impulses.

My thoughts

What a page turner! I was literally transfixed to The Killer’s Family from start to end. I just had to read into the early hours to find out what surprises this book held, and the shocks kept on coming.

The three main characters, Molly, Cara and Rachel totally immersed me in their predicament. I felt their shock, their heartache and their need to make all the decisions that they made.

The amount of thrills and chills were heart stopping. A serial killer, a haunting past, an abundance of imminent danger – all these sealed the deal that this is a fabulous thriller.

If you love a book that moves at pace, gives you the creeps and makes you say wow at every turn, don’t miss The Killer’s Family!

Thanks for reading!
