Dare to Remember: New Psychological Crime Drama Paperback

Reeling from a brutal attack that leaves her best friend dead and her badly injured, Lisa Fulbrook flees to the countryside to recuperate. With only vague memories of the event, she isolates herself from her friends and family, content to spend her days wandering the hills with her dog, Riley.
However, Lisa is soon plagued, not only by vivid flashbacks, but questions, too: how did their assailant know them? Why were they attacked? And what really happened that night?
As she desperately tries to piece together the memories, Lisa realises that there’s another truth still hidden to her, a truth she can’t escape from. A truth that may have been right in front of her all along. A clever, sophisticated, psychological thriller.

A FEW LINES FROM DARE TO REMEMBER

She remembered the first part of the evening well enough: the after-work crowd spilling onto the pavement outside the pub, the hum of voices, the smell of beer. They had sat by the open door where it was cool.

They were joined by the usual gang in ones and twos and by the time Fergus turned up there were no seats left. ‘move up,’ he said, squeezing onto the end of the bench next to Lisa. ‘ Give me some space.’ As he sat down she caught a whiff of whisky mingled with a strange, earthy smell she couldn’t identify. Sweat glistened on his forehead.

MY REVIEW

First of all congratulations to Susanna Beard for having her first psychological crime novel published by Legend Press Dare To Remember. Susanna got the idea for Dare To Remember while she was out doing the daily walk with her two good-natured terriers, Cookie and Tipsy.  In the book the Lisa enjoys the silence, the isolation, the anonymity. The only person she has spoken to so far is her neighbour, John, a frail old man who lives alone with his dog, Riley. Lisa is surprised when John asks her if she would mind walking Riley. Lisa has lost Riley by the lake. Will she find him? Lots more happen in Dare To Remember, but I would rather not spoil the fun for other readers. Remember the name Susanna Beard as I know that Susanna is busy writing her second psychological thriller.
