Review

Praise for Stranger Child
“Pure Genius: A Masterclass in the Perfect Thriller!!” –
Love Books
"Absorbing, complex and brilliantly planned, I loved this book. 10/10."
Novelicious

"The characters are believable and the crimes credible. Contemporary issues, grief and desperation are well handled. The pace is good, the twists credible and it can easily be read as a stand alone. Enjoy."
Crime Thriller Hound

"I was left speechless in the first chapter and couldn't put it down for hours. Rachel is amazing at building tension and keeping you turning page after page."
Crime Book Club

"Stranger Child was the PERFECT thriller. I couldn't get enough of this shocking story."
Bookaholic Confessions

"Ms. Abbott writes complex and yet very believable thrillers and this book was no exception. You will be on the edge of your seat constantly. 5 stars. A very strong thriller."
Books, Reviews, Etc.

"Prose is taut, wholly believable locations and a full cast bursting with engaging characters."
Crime Fiction Lover

"I loved this book! What I loved the most about this book was the plot. There are a few 'curve balls' in this story, which definitely kept me on my toes. I really could not put this down."
Debra's Book Cafe

"Set against the opposing realities of harsh, crime-ridden gangs and cosy, well-off, Middle-England families, Abbott seamlessly weaves three separate narratives together into one barn-stormer of a thriller. ...a well-rounded, and fulfilling novel, that still manages to keep you guessing right to the very end."
If These Books Could Talk

“I have resented the intrusion of real people while my mind grappled with the events in Sleep Tight” -
Cleo Loves Books

About the Author

Rachel Abbott was born just outside Manchester, England. She spent most of her working life as the Managing Director of an interactive media company, developing software and websites for the education market. The sale of that business enabled her to take early retirement and fulfil one of her lifelong ambitions - to buy and restore a property in Italy.

But even in Italy the winters can be cold and wet, and so Rachel decided to fill those dismal days by fulfilling another ambition - writing a psychological thriller! ONLY THE INNOCENT, her first novel, was more successful than she could ever have imagined, and it enabled her to change her life yet again, and become a full time writer. Her third novel, SLEEP TIGHT, was released on 24th February 2014 and was her third number one.

Stranger Child, Rachel's latest book, was released on 24th February 2015.
