Publisher's Summary

The incredible new thriller you won’t be able to put down from the Top 10 Sunday Times best-selling author.

A happy family....

Alice and Tom Sark seem to have it all - a wonderful marriage, a gorgeous baby, a beautiful home. And now Alice, a journalist, starts investigating a story that could make her career - a serial killer in their town.

A murderer lurking in the shadows....

Very quickly though, the murder case takes its toll. Alice and Tom begin fighting all the time. Their baby daughter just won’t stop crying. And sometimes it feels almost as if they’re being followed....

Not everyone will live to tell the tale....

The killer has found a new family to target. And the clock is ticking for Alice and Tom to stop their worlds being destroyed forever.

Critic Reviews

"Relentlessly fast paced, a compelling plot and anxiety inducing finale. A cracking read." (John Marrs, best-selling author of The One)

"Opens with a nightmare scenario and races to a gripping, horribly tense ending - I think I actually stopped breathing several times. Loved it!" (Jackie Kabler, author of The Perfect Couple)

"With an unrelenting sense of urgency, this brilliant book will get under your skin. Great hook, fast-paced, fully engrossing. Don't miss out - read it now!" (Sam Carrington, author of The Missing Wife)

"This is creepy storytelling of the highest order: spine-chilling and difficult to put down." (Daily Mail

I Was Ready.....

I selected "READY OR NOT" because I was "READY" to enjoy another 5-star book by Alex Lake.

Unfortunately, "READY OR NOT" was a "NOT" for me. . I listened to the first 5 chapters before returning the book to Audible.

Life is too short to listen to 1-star books.

Alex Lake is a talented writer so I am not sure what happened. Alex Lake's "THE CHOICE "(released in 2020) was a 5-star read for me and, to date, is my favorite title by this author.

The narration, BTW, was awful, so there is "NOT" anything positive to say about this disappointing title.

Not!

Truly awful in every way! Poor narration, ridiculous Swiss cheese plot full of holes, bad writing, lack of editing, and an obvious perpetrator identifiable very early on. The book just dragged on and on, I thought it would never end. The biggest mystery in this book...where is the book's editor? Maybe he/she was one of the murder victims of the Crucifix Killer!!??

This is utter drivel and a huge waste of time and money. I can't believe this book was published. I can't believe I listened to the whole thing! Ready or not...run far, far away, and take your credits with you.
