Alison Belsham

‘I started and finished it without getting up! I could not stop reading this book!… Wow!! This kept me hanging on page after page! It was one mouth drop after another! I was even biting my lip! I loved this!’ Goodreads reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The girl lies on the dark ground, one arm flung out as if she is still looking for someone to help her. But her wide eyes are staring upwards, and Lexi knows that it is too late…

When Detective Lexi Bennett hears screaming on her way to work, she immediately rushes towards the sound. At the scene, she finds the body of a teenage girl lying beneath one of Canterbury’s ancient towers. Looking up at the cold grey stone, Lexi vows that she will find answers. Did the girl jump or fall… or was she pushed?

Olivia’s distraught parents say their daughter had everything to live for. Lexi’s nephew, Sam, who knew Olivia, tearfully insists that she would never have taken her own life. But when a note is found, Lexi reluctantly wraps up the case.

Then another teenager is found dead on a deserted path beneath a cliff, and Lexi is certain there’s a link. His note uses the same phrases as Olivia’s, and when a second person’s footprints are found at the scene, Lexi realises she is on the track of a master manipulator… and ruthless killer.

With her boss still unconvinced that these are murders, Lexi races to find proof, and to understand what lies behind these evil attacks.

And then she gets a call that fills her with dread. Her nephew Sam is missing.

Can Lexi outsmart a truly brutal monster, or will her own family pay the price?

A totally gripping crime thriller that will have you reading late into the night. Fans of Karin Slaughter, Rachel McLean and J M Dalgliesh will love The Girl’s Last Cry.
