Dead Scared by S. J. Bolton

Keep telling yourself it’s only fiction as you read this sensational thriller.  Are you scared yet?

Watch your back, Lacey Flint...

When a Cambridge student dramatically attempts to take her own life, DI Mark Joesbury realizes that the university has developed an unhealthy record of young people committing suicide in extraordinary ways.

Against huge personal misgivings, Joesbury sends young policewoman DC Lacey Flint to Cambridge, with a brief to work undercover, posing as a depression-prone, vulnerable student.

Psychiatrist Evi Oliver is the only person in Cambridge who knows who Lacey really is – or so they both hope.  But as the two women dig deeper into the darker side of university life, they discover a terrifying trend…

And when Lacey starts experiencing the same disturbing nightmares reported by the dead girls, she knows that she is next.

Peer & Press Reviews

Bolton never eases up the tension; her tightly coiled plot and heroine on the edge work perfectly in tandem.

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Bolton leads the reader deep into the ugly world of cyberbullying and explores the question: is it possible to scare someone to death.

Sunday Express

The ending really was ‘unputtdownable’ and I guess my only complaint would be that I was left slightly stunned at the end.  This is almost certainly a good thing.

Sarah Ward, Crimepieces
