Tuesday Titles 078..

Naked Slaughter
Naked Slaughter - Nigel Lampard
Isn't it most people's dream to move into a beautiful cottage in an idyllically quiet village. A friendly, welcoming place with a relaxed atmosphere? For Philip and Sarah, looking at Primrose Cottage, this could be just what their marriage needs. New surroundings and a fresh start will surely take the pressure off them in their efforts to have a baby.

Soon welcomed into village life, things seem to be going well once Sarah and Philip move to Upper Slaughter. Whilst they are considered "outsiders" by some, they form some very close friendships with another couple in the village and have no reason to think they might be being watched...

The writing style is so refreshingly accurate - Lampard manages to create such believable characters and it didn't take long for me to become pretty heavily invested in their lives and that of the person watching them.

When Sarah mysteriously disappears, her husband isn't sure what to think. Has she left him? Or has something more sinister happened? Surely not in such an idyllic little village.
