Somebody Out There by Kevin Lynch

4 Stars from me

Moving to a beautiful, completely rural, peaceful village with a new business venture and a wholesome lifestyle in mind, what starts of seeming like an idyllic dream soon turns into a nightmare for Ben, Deborah and their family.

Having left the city – and Deborah’s career as a crime reporter – behind in order to run a health shop and integrate into village life, the family soon begin to wonder if they have made the right move.

What isn’t clear, is whether the family are being targeted by the very people they moved away from. Are they under threat from criminals who weren’t best pleased with Deborah’s crime reporting, or are the local’s just not a fan a newbie’s moving into their village, or is there something else at play?

There seems to be a real air of menace throughout Somebody Out There and there were several times where it felt like things were about to spiral to a really dark conclusion within this skillfully plotted thriller.

Hats off to Ben and Deborah, I wouldn’t have stayed beyond a week with everything that went on!

And as soon I realised the family had a dog… well, let’s just say I worked out pretty quickly that it wouldn’t be a good idea to get too attached to him!

Overall, this is an edge of the seat read… not a book I would enjoy on a dark night in a holiday cottage for example!

Book Blurb: Be careful what you wish for…

When Ben and Deborah leave the city to start a new life in the beautiful Irish countryside, they can almost taste their perfect future – growing their own food, the kids running free, peace and silence. But as soon as they arrive in their new home bad things start to happen. And it becomes clear that somebody out there wants them gone.

But ex-crime reporter Deborah doesn’t scare easily. This is the life she’s dreamed of for her family and she’s not giving up on it without a fight. As the campaign against the family intensifies and becomes truly terrifying, Deborah is determined
to unmask whoever is trying to hurt them and starts to dig for the truth.

What she finds is more twisted and horrifying than she could ever have imagined.
