The chilling new psychological thriller by S. K. Tremayne, author of the Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller, THE ICE TWINS.
When Rachel marries dark, handsome David, everything seems to fall into place. Swept from single life in London to the beautiful Carnhallow House in Cornwall, she gains wealth, love, and an affectionate stepson, Jamie.   But then Jamie’s behaviour changes, and Rachel’s perfect life begins to unravel. He makes disturbing predictions, claiming to be haunted by the spectre of his late mother – David’s previous wife. Is this Jamie’s way of punishing Rachel, or is he far more traumatized than she thought?
As Rachel starts digging into the past, she begins to grow suspicious of her husband. Why is he so reluctant to discuss Jamie’s outbursts? And what exactly happened to cause his ex-wife’s untimely death, less than two years ago? As summer slips away and December looms, Rachel begins to fear there might be truth in Jamie’s words:

You will be dead by Christmas.

The Fire Child is from the best selling author of The Ice Twins. This new novel The Fire Child with a suspenseful atmosphere made me shiver in fear. David Kerthan’s first wife Nina died at an accident at Morvellan Mine. To Rachel her new husband David and his son, seemed like they a real family already. David Kerthan was a lawyer and owned a fabulous house in Cornwall. Things start to get a bit chilling when Rachel’s stepson Jamie predicts the future, or does he? And Jamie starts seeing his dead mother walking around the house. Rachel becomes suspicious of her own husband and starts digging up the past. I have read The Ice Twins that I highly recommend, S. K. Tremayne is a new author with her second novel, The Fire Child, who is definitely a name to keep a watch out for in the future.
