The Lovereading4Kids comment

Emma Haughton’s debut won her comparisons with Sophie McKenzie – high praise indeed. Her new book, Better Left Buried, confirms her reputation for taut, well-plotted psychological thrillers. Sarah’s brother has died, which is terrible enough, but then Sarah realises she is being followed – could her brother have got his family involved in some very nasty business? Working out what has happened will take Sarah to Sweden, and into very real danger. The tension mounts chapter by chapter, and leads to a nail-biting climax. Sarah is a sympathetic central character, which makes the menacing atmosphere around her all the more scary. A book to send shivers down the spine. ~ Andrea Reece

A Piece of Passion from Sarah Stewart, Usborne Publishing Despite this being only her second novel, to me, Emma Haughton is a master thriller writer. The tension in this book builds almost unbearably, layer upon layer, to an explosive action-packed climax, and the writing is exquisite – certain passages still give me shivers no matter how many times I read them! Culminating in an incredible atmospheric road-trip to Sweden, it echoes the best Scandi crime novels. But best of all, it has the ultimate bad-boy character in Jack. Whose side is he on? Will we ever know for sure? I couldn’t help falling for him either way!

Synopsis

Better Left Buried by Emma Haughton

Brother dead...best friend missing...house ransacked...stalked by a stranger...attacked in the street...And Sarah has no idea why. She never knew her brother was hiding a dark secret when he died. But now his actions have led the wolves to her door - and the only way out is to run. A tense, unnerving thriller that will set your heart racing.
