black eyes susansBy Sophia Whitfield

Julia Heaberlin’s latest psychological thriller is a gripping tale of a vulnerable victim. Set in Texas, Hearberlin weaves her story of intrigue delving into the past as her victim tries to come to terms with the present.

Seventeen-year-old Tessa was the only survivor of a serial killer's rampage of attacks. The victims were dubbed Black Eyed Susans by the media and the fractured memories of the other Susans threaten to destabilise Tessa.

Thanks to Tessa’s testimony a man is now on Death Row for the crimes he committed. He remains in prison awaiting his death, but someone continues to plant black-eyed Susans outside Tessa’s bedroom window. If her monster is behind bars, who can this be?

When an investigation into the case is opened up just prior to her perpetrator’s death, Tessa agrees to help. She is not convinced that the right man is behind bars and is keen to protect her teenage daughter.

Tessa wants to remember the face of her attacker but he was always wearing a mask. Fragments of memories come back to her as she tries to piece her harrowing past together. Her fellow victims seem to speak to her from their graves.

Heaberlin counts down the days until the accused man’s life will end adding intensity and suspense as Tessa’s story unfolds.

It will be hard not to read this book in one sitting. Black Eyed Susans is everything you would expect from a thriller and more. You can buy the book here.
