Book Tour | Never Look Back By A.L.Gaylin

Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.

Welcome to the first book tour I'm involved in for 2020.  The book tour is for Never Look Back By A.L Gaylin. 

Alison Gaylin is the award-winning author of Hide Your Eyes and its sequel, You Kill Me; the standalones Trashed, Heartless, What Remains Of Me and If I Die Tonight; and the Brenna Spector series: And She Was, Into the Dark, and Stay with Me. A graduate of Northwestern University and of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, she lives with her husband and daughter in Woodstock, New York.

Admittedly this is my first book I've read by her and I'll definitely be checking out more of her books in the future.

About the book:

She was the most brutal killer of our time. And she may have been my mother...

When website columnist Robin Diamond is contacted by true crime podcast producer Quentin Garrison, she assumes it's a business matter. It's not. Quentin's podcast, Closure, focuses on a series of murders in the 1970s, committed by teen couple April Cooper and Gabriel LeRoy. It seems that Quentin has reason to believe Robin's own mother may be intimately connected with the killings.

Robin thinks Quentin's claim is absurd. But is it? The more she researches the Cooper/LeRoy murders herself, the more disturbed she becomes by what she finds. Living just a few blocks from her, Robin's beloved parents are the one absolute she's always been able to rely upon, especially now amid rising doubts about her husband and frequent threats from internet trolls. Robin knows her mother better than anyone.

But then her parents are brutally attacked, and Robin realises she doesn't know the truth at all...

I found Never Look Back to be a bit of a slow starter but definitely a read to stick with. I actually finished this book within 24 hours.
Never Look Back is one of them books you think that you've worked out the twist early on but you turn out to be wrong. I like that the book flicks between what is currently happening and the letters written by April Cooper to her daughter in the future as the events are happening.
