Product description


'Come a Little Closer is a brilliant crime read. Rachel Abbott is already one of the Queens of Crime, but this dark tale of manipulation, danger and lies adds to her reputation for outstanding storytelling.' Kate Rhodes, author of Hell Bay

'In Come a Little Closer, Abbott's usual high calibre plotting provides everything the reader needs in
a gripping thriller. Satisfying investigation from the ever-lovely Tom Douglas, and a killer twist that makes this one her best yet.' Louise Voss, co author of From the Cradle

'Come A Little Closer is a heart-stopping foray into DCI Tom Douglas' latest investigation. Swathed in suspense and tension,
this thrilling, utterly marvellous book will snatch the breath from its readers and capture their imagination from the very first word of the very first sentence! Wonderful!' - Ronnie Turner, blogger

'The tangled web Rachel Abbott weaves is both intriguing and horrifying and I found myself living this story.
I was totally gripped by it.' Kath Middleton, author and blogger

'What a cracker of a book! Spellbinding. Breath-taking. The pace just builds and builds to the climax giving you a really uneasy feeling in your bones.
And that ending! OMG! What ashocker!' Kim the Bookworm

'Creepy to the core, Rachel Abbott never fails to deliver with her
mind-blowing twists and downright sinister storylines! 5 stars' - Noelle, Crimebookjunkie

'Come A Little Closer is a very twisty mix of dark psychological thriller and intelligent police procedural. Rachel Abbott has created
an intricate web of lies and deceit.' - Victoria Goldman, Off-the-Shelf Books.

About the Author

Rachel Abbott, born and raised in Manchester, founded her own interactive media company in the 1980s, before selling it and retiring in 2005. She then moved to Italy where she worked on the renovation of a 15th century Italian monastery, and it was here that, one day, she found herself snowed in and decided to begin writing for pleasure. This became her debut novel Only The Innocent, which she went on to publish via Kindle Direct Publishing, topping their chart for 4 weeks. A true self-publishing pioneer, Come a Little Closer is Abbott's seventh novel. All of her previous thrillers have hit no.1 in the Kindle charts. She splits her time between Alderney in the Channel Islands and Italy. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
