Its that time again Anita Waller has produced another captivating read in her new book Captor, full of secrets, lies, adultery, child abduction, family issues, murder and REVENGE….. What more could you want to titillate and spark your desire for a sensational psychological read.
Liz’s child is abducted from her childminders home, is there someone out there who wants to destroy her life?
Liz harbours a secret which could destroy her family, will she have to reveal the secret to save her child, can she save her family?
All questions which need to be answered!
I followed the scent of the intricate labyrinth of deception and secrets, capturing the essence of fear and suspense, hoping and praying Liz would survive the harrowing ordeal and have her child returned. Liz on occasions seemed a little contrite, but I also found her belligerent at times, this possibly could have been due to the police investigation into her life. Even so, I felt that I actually connected with Liz in several ways, I empathised with her situation, wondering what would I do in her shoes, what would anyone else do, after all its your child.
Anita’s depiction of the characters, lead me to feel cautious and guarded about who was to blame, who could be the perpetrator, they all had aspects in there characterisations which I believed made them capable of abducting a child but boy was I dead wrong. Anita threw me for a loop, all the ducking and diving produced a electrifyingly first-class conclusion to a traumatic thriller.
I guarantee you will not be able to put Captor to rest until finished, jam packed and stacked with everything you could desire in a criminal psychological thriller.
Thank you to Anita Waller for capturing my imagination and thoroughly enthralling my senses, it has been a pleasure to have been offered an advanced readers copy of Captor, to read and review with my own unbiased opinions. Also thanks to Bloodhound Books and Sarah Hardy for a damn good read, keep the fantastic books coming!
Anita Waller was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in 1946. She married Dave in 1967 and they have three adult children.
She began writing when she was around 8 years of age, writing ‘compositions’ at junior school that became books with chapters.
In 1995 she sent Beautiful to a publisher and as they reached the contract stage the publisher went into liquidation.
As a result, the book was consigned to the attic in dejected disgust but in 2013 it was dragged out again for an enforced complete re-type. The original was written on an Amstrad 8256 and the only thing that remained was one hard copy.
Anita is not a typist and it was painfully reworked over two years, submitted to Bloodhound Books who, within three days of reading it, offered her a contract. 31 August 2015 saw its release into the wide world.
Following the outstanding success of Beautiful, she began a sequel on 27 December 2015, finishing it on 19 March 2016. The new novel, Angel, was launched on 7 May 2016.
34 Days followed, with its launch in October 2016. This was a huge success, particularly in the United States. While this, her third book in the psychological thriller genre, was flying out in all directions, she began work on her fourth book.
Winterscroft was a change in genre. It is a supernatural tale, set in Castleton, Derbyshire, and its release date was February 2017.
While she was writing Winterscroft, it became very clear from reading reviews that a sequel to 34 days was needed, and she began work on that. Bloodhound Books launched Strategy, on 10 August, 2017.
So where next? Her new book, launching February 2018 and titled Captor, is a psychological thriller.
In her life away from the computer in the corner of her kitchen, she is a Sheffield Wednesday supporter with blue blood in her veins! The club was particularly helpful during the writing of 34 Days, as a couple of matches feature in the novel, along with Ross Wallace. Information was needed and they provided it.
Her genre is murder – necessary murder.
