Cruelty's Daughter
by Anna Willett
Genre: Thriller, Suspense

When a young girl is abducted by a notorious serial killer, a woman risks her own life trying to save her. 

Mina is struggling to come to terms with her past. Having led a reclusive life, shunning human contact, she decides to take on a local college course to help get her life back on track.

However, when a young girl who tries to befriend her is abducted by a serial killer, Mina feels responsible. She refused to wait with the girl for her mother to pick her up. And she shrugged off the youngster’s fears.

Now Mina cannot rest until she finds out what happened. But as she probes into the events of that evening, her own nightmares start to return. She has put herself in danger, one that leads to an increasingly tense standoff with a cruel and vicious man who will stop at nothing.

Can she find the strength to stand up to her demons, past and present? And will she do so, even if it means risking everything?

  1. I like the style and colors of the cover. What inspires your writing?

  2. Thanks, Deanne. I'm really happy with the cover. I'm inspired by the places I visit in the south west and also by real-life crime. Often, one small thing sticks in my mind and from that, a whole novel emerges. Western Australia is a big place with some very unusual towns and settings. Some are beautiful, but often rugged and remote. I suppose it's the perfect place to imagine anything could happen.

  3. I like the book cover. This sounds like a must read for me

  4. I like the cover, I love Thrillers.
