A chilling and compelling debut crime thriller set in South East London. For all those who enjoy Peter James, Mark Billingham, and Peter Robinson. Three women have been found brutally murdered in south London, the victims only feet away from help during each sadistic attack. And the killer is getting braver.... Sarah Grainger is rapidly becoming too afraid to leave her house. Once an outgoing photographer, she knows that someone is watching her. A cryptic note brings everything into terrifying focus, but it’s the chilling phone calls that take the case to another level.
DI Mike Lockyer heads up the regional murder squad. With three bodies on his watch, and a killer growing in confidence, he frantically tries to find the link between these seemingly isolated incidents. What he discovers will not only test him professionally but will throw his personal life into turmoil, too.
After 10 years in London, working for a City law firm, Clare Donoghue moved back to her home town in Somerset to undertake an MA in creative writing at Bath Spa University. Never Look Back is her first novel and in 2011, whilst still an unpublished manuscript, was long-listed for the CWA Debut Dagger.

Thriller? Whodunit? Neither
It might be OK for someone really interested in the inner life of police officers and victims dealing with violence on a daily basis.
Probably a historical novel
The male narrator does a good job but I fear the female narrator is a bit whiny.
The plot doesn't hold together but the chief inspector's character is well portrayed.
Please note that my critical comments are born of misplaced expectations: I expected a police thriller but got a psychological novel.
Reads exactly like a BBC mystery script
