A mother’s job is to keep her children safe.

Tess has always tried to be a good mother. Of course, there are things she wishes she’d done differently, but doesn’t everyone feel that way?

Then Emma, her youngest, is attacked on her way home from a party, plunging them into a living nightmare which only gets worse when the man responsible is set free

But what if she fails?

So when Tess sees the attacker in the street near their home, she is forced to take matters into her own hands. But blinded by her need to protect her daughter at any cost, might she end up putting her family in even greater danger?

There’s nothing she wouldn’t do to make it right . . .

From the moment I read the blurb of this book I was utterly convinced I knew what direction it would the extent that was I read reading it, I was trying to match up the words to where I thought it would go - right up until the moment I realised I was so far away from reality and was completely wrong! 

Delighted to say I was wrong because as a result this book was far more gripping and twisty, and really did keep me on my toes. 

This really is a book about the power of a mothers love - but at the same time just how fragile a mental state can be when masses of big life events all occur within a relatively short space of time. 

Her younger daughter Emma has without a doubt been through and ordeal, although it could have been a whole lot worse, and you are thrown into the drama quite quickly.  At the same time you glean that Tess has an older daughter who she seems to be distanced from and all I wanted to to was know why, which kept me turning the pages. 

What really had me intrigued and got me thinking were the small chapters between chapters written italics in a rather creepy way - I must have changed my mind many many times as to who that voice was - and I'm still not completely sure I have pin pointed it. 

This is a rather clever psychological drama, there isn't a body count, but there are police involved, its all from Tess's perspective and you really had a great insight into her mental state.  I was quite happy to believe everything she says, so was quite happily being led down some dead ends. 

Stop At Nothing started off by gripping me, and then as it progressed wouldn't loosen its hold, so I didn't put it down until I had finished it. 

Another fabulous book from an author I love reading, definitely highly recommended. 

Thank you to Transworld and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
