The Blurb:

Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you.

Louise Leighton’s life has fallen apart, all because of one fateful night. Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.

Eighteen-year-old Brooke Leighton is missing. It’s up to Louise and the Metropolitan Police to find her. Has Brooke run away? Or has she been taken against her will? And can Louise aid the investigation without mentioning the night where all of her troubles began?

If she mentions that night, she will incriminate her daughter for heinous crimes. But if she doesn’t, she may never find Brooke; and if she has been abducted, the person who took her may come for Louise, too.

Sometimes the past comes back to kill you.

My Review:

Anything for Her is a dark, harrowing, page-turner of a thriller.

Louise Leighton’s life, already at breaking point due to events that happened a year previously, falls apart when her husband confesses to cheating on her with her sister. Then her daughter, Brooke, goes missing, and the mystery of what happened that night begins to unfold at breakneck speed…

This is a dark, dark, dark book, with twists and turns and everything in between. The pace is fast, the characters all flawed beyond help (in a well-drawn way) and the plot tight. Not for the feint of heart, but definitely one for fans of crime thrillers. Recommended.
