Continually haunted by her own experiences as a twelve-year-old, Abby Bardot kept people at arm’s length. Now a newspaper reporter, Abby wanted to write an article about the murders of young girls that had occurred in the woods surrounding the small town she lived in. She felt families, especially young girls, needed to be aware of the dangers. When she found a young girl, injured and seemingly unconscious up at one of the lookouts, the surging memories hit immediately. But when she directed the ambulance back to the spot, the young girl was gone…

In her quest to interview reclusive writer, Tom Gabriel, Abby arrived at his home in the woods one day, sure he wouldn’t turn her away. The beautiful old home of Ravensong which Tom had recently purchased, captivated Abby. But over days, and during the process of the interview, a tiny hidden room was discovered, high up in the attic. Tom and Abby’s shock at what they found had them digging deeply into the past. Was it connected to the latest young girl who’d gone missing? And would they be able to find her before it was too late?

Wow! Aussie author Anna Romer’s latest novel, Under the Midnight Sky, is an absolute screamer! The chilling twists, the secrets buried so deeply the years flew by without knowledge by police or anyone else. The innocent and the lost; the heartache; the fear and terror – all blended perfectly to form a novel which made my heart race. A perfect psychological thriller which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend.

With thanks to Simon & Schuster AU for my uncorrected proof ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.
