I am super excited to share my review with you on the last day of Blog Tour for NO ESCAPE by Casey Kelleher
The one place she never wanted to go back to. The one place she can’t escape.
When she was just five years old, Lucy Murphy witnessed her mother’s brutal murder in their home on London’s notorious Griffin Estate. The case was never solved. Now a newly qualified police officer, Lucy has been given her first job: she’s going back to the Griffin Estate.
She is there to protect the estate’s vulnerable residents, including Shannon and Kian Winters, two kids struggling to deal with their alcoholic mother. Fifteen-year-old Shannon is working every spare hour to keep a roof over their heads, but thirteen-year-old Kian has fallen under the sway of gang leader Jax Priestly. And now Jax has plans for Shannon too…
As Lucy gets to know Kian and Shannon she becomes determined not to let the two teenagers become Jax’s victims. But time is running out. Jax is out of control, and the gang’s violent reprisals are escalating. Can Lucy face down her own demons in time to prevent a tragedy? As a child, she already witnessed the murder of one innocent person. It will take all her courage and training to stop another.
A shocking, fast-paced read that will keep you gripped from beginning to end. Fans of Kimberley Chambers and Martina Cole won’t be able to put this down.
I love every single one Casey’s books and each one gets better and better. Even though the author leaves no room for improvement because they are that good! But WOW this book is definitely one of my favourites. And I am really hoping this is the start of a new series. I absolutely loved Lucy and everything about this book.
We are taken on a roller coaster ride when we meet Lucy Murphy and she finds herself back on Griffin Estate has a police officer. The estate where she witnessed her mothers murder when she was just five years old.
I was hooked from the very first page and found myself wrapped up in the lifes of Shannon and Kien. No Escape is a fast paced unputdownable story. That will eat you up inside and pull at your heart strings.
There are plenty of OMFG moments, not forgetting the ending. It is tense read pulling me from pillow to post. You can feel the emotion and for an author to make me cry is one hell of an achievement and Casey did just that.This story has totally blown me away.
If you’re looking for a nail biting on the edge of your seat read, this is the book for you. I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars.
