Anna Graves always wanted to be a journalist, like her father, Simon.
Anna works at a radio station, taking questions from callers. Anna is
recently separated from her husband, Guy, with whom she has a young
daughter, Joni. Anna is still having a hard time dealing with their
While Anna is on a walk with Joni one day, she is approached by a high
school student. Elliot has a wild look in his eyes and is armed with a
knife. Anna is afraid for her daughter. While trying to protect Joni, she
grabs a comb out of her purse; the only thing she has for protection. As
Elliot comes towards her, he falls on Anna and the comb goes into his
neck. Anna is shocked when Elliot dies at her feet, but she is cleared of
all charges when witnesses back up that she acted in self-defense.
While Anna tries to get her life back together, strange things start to
happen. Back when her father was a journalist, he was working on a
story on a notorious serial killer, nicknamed the "Ophelia Killer." Before
her father was able to finish his story, he dies, jumping to his death
from the lighthouse. Anna has always felt that maybe investigating this
story was just too much for him. Now Anna is getting emails from
someone claiming to be the Ophelia Killer.
Anna wants to find out who is writing the emails. At first, she thinks it is
Elliot's father because he's outraged at his son's death. Simon's
brother, Jamie doesn't think it's his father and decides to help Anna in
her search for the Ophelia Killer. As they get closer to who is behind
this, they know that there is no turning back...
I have been reading a lot of thrillers lately, and NO TURNING BACK is on the top of the list. I was totally
shocked at the outcome of this book. Not at all the way I thought it
would end. So, when I can't figure out a book before the end, I know it
is one great storyline. I don't think anyone could figure this book out.
Tracy Robertson had so many different characters in this storyline, it
made me think everyone was guilty. Robertson also shows how
sometimes the people closest to you are not really what you think. I
also loved how far Anna would go to protect her child. I am sure anyone
in her position would do the same. Buy it and test yourself to see if you
can figure it out. Good Luck!
