The Girl With No Past - Kathryn Croft

"Leah Mills lives a life of a fugitive – kept on the run by one terrible day from her past. It is a lonely life, without a social life or friends until – longing for a connection – she meets Julian. For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life. 

Then, on the fourteenth anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed the life Leah has created. 

But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?  

Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly."

BLIMEY. This book is GRIPPY - I sat and read it over the course of a day and a night, purely because I couldn't put it down. 
Another tale carried by an unreliable narrator (my reading seems to have a theme lately), I wasn't entirely sure through the entire novel whether I liked Leah Mills or not. In fact, I still don't know. The reader knows that something happened in Leah's past which means that she currently lives like a fugitive, not making any friends or letting anyone into her life. The thing that makes this book so bloody grippy, is that nothing is given away through the whole book. I LOVED that element of it - it's so cleverly written that although you know SOMETHING has happened, it is so well concealed that you have to race to the end to find out, all the while perched on the edge of your seat.
Unlikeable characters? Literally ZERO plot information? It is FABULOUS. 

The Girl With No Past is out on 15th October and you can get it here:
