Book Review “The Serial Killer’s Girl” by Lynda Stacey


The Serial Killers Girl

Does a killer’s blood run in the family?

Lexi Jakes thought she could run from her past.

But when her biological mother is found dead, strangled with a red silk scarf and holding a chess piece, Lexi knows that her worst nightmare has come true. Because the murder has all the hallmarks of her own serial killer father, renown strangler Peter Graves.

Now with her own precious daughter’s life in danger, Lexi will do anything to keep her child safe…she is her father’s daughter after all.

Purchase Link –


A well deserved 5 stars for The Serial Killer’s Girl. Is it slow paced? yes, does this add to the tension? oh yes! Not all psychological thriller need to rush along, hurtling towards the end, then finish. Oh no The Serial Killer’s Girl builds the tension slowly as the whole story unfolds and you can’t help but feel you are right in the story with Lexi. What a brilliant character she is. Her world is about to be turned on it’s head yet again only now she has her own child to protect. How can she do this? Her only hope is to return to her childhood home of Lindisfarne, where she feels safe and cut off from her past.

Riveting is the word that sums this story right up. I really could not stop reading, I was still reading in to the wee small hours, my eyes stinging but I just had to l know how this story ended. An enthralling read that is written superbly well. The Characters are strong and the creepy stalkerish behaviour of the “Killer” is really unnerving and the danger he brings is palpable.

I relished every page in The Serial Killer’s Girl. I would highly recommend this to all who love a slow burn, tension building plot line that will leave you exhausted and somewhat shocked then this is the one for you. Perfectly spine-chilling.
