Coming For You by Deborah Rogers
A brutal crime. A traumatized mind. A victim no one believes…
Successful New York prosecutor Amelia Kellaway is hiding a secret. Still deeply traumatized by a kidnapping incident she suffered three years ago, Amelia is struggling to cope with a crippling anxiety disorder where she compulsively checks her locks and doors. She’s also experiencing frightening blackouts that strike at random. The root cause of her anxiety is her unshakable belief that her previous attacker, Rex Hawkins, is stalking her. She’s been to the authorities but they’ve dismissed her concerns as the paranoid delusions of a traumatized mind.
But are Amelia’s fears really unfounded? Could Rex Hawkins still be out there, waiting for her to drop her guard and make a mistake? Or is Amelia slipping deeper into neurosis and at risk of losing her mind?
Another gripping and twisty tale of psychological suspense from Deborah Rogers, Coming for You is a terrifying portrayal of a young woman on the brink, with shades of Hitchcock and Gillian Flynn.
If you like tense, gritty psychological suspense thrillers, you’ll love book 2 in the Amelia Kellaway series from exciting new crime writer Deborah Rogers.
Coming For You by Deborah Rogers is the second book in the Amelia Kellaway series. This compelling, suspense filled thriller works fine as a standalone novel.
I was immediately drawn into this story from the first chapter. Main character Amelia Kellaway, a New York lawyer, is deeply disturbed, highly paranoid and physically and mentally damaged. The author paints a vivid and touching picture of a woman living with PTSD after a vicious and harrowing attack.
When detective Ethan North enters Amelia’s life her first instinct is to push him away. However, slowly she begins to let down her guard and talk about what happened when she was kidnapped and raped by Rex Hawkins, a man Amelia believes is still stalking her.
Will Amelia finally convince someone that a serial killer is out there, preying on other women and tracking her every move?
This quick read is told from Amelia Kellaway’s perspective and her anguish and paranoia is extremely well portrayed. It takes a while to find out exactly what happened to Amelia and the suspense is heightened as the details are slowly revealed. This tense thriller is well written with a totally believable main character. Recommended for lovers of psychological thrillers.
Thank you to the author for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
