‘When website columnist Robin Diamond is contacted by true crime podcast producer Quentin Garrison, she assumes it’s a business matter. It’s not. Quentin’s podcast, Closure, focuses on a series of murders in the 1970s, committed by teen couple April Cooper and Gabriel LeRoy. It seems that Quentin has reason to believe Robin’s own mother may be intimately connected with the killings.

Robin thinks Quentin’s claim is absurd. But is it? The more she researches the Cooper/LeRoy murders herself, the more disturbed she becomes by what she finds. Living just a few blocks from her, Robin’s beloved parents are the one absolute she’s always been able to rely upon, especially now amid rising doubts about her husband and frequent threats from internet trolls. Robin knows her mother better than anyone.

But then her parents are brutally attacked, and Robin realizes she doesn’t know the truth at all…’

I really enjoyed this book.

I honesty didn’t think I was going to enjoy this book as much as I did. This is by far one of the best crime books I have read in a long time.

I loved getting to see the story unfold through the letters and articles rather than jumping between time periods.

The characters in this story were so well developed, I had no problem relating to and feeling for them. The individual stories and journeys were the heart of this book.

This book really does show you how small the world is. Seeing how these characters intertwined and how their actions affected the other characters was really interesting to watch play out.

My favourite thing about this book was the emotion. There were some genuinely emotional moments in this book, and they were completely believable and heartbreaking.

A.L. Gaylin has done a fantastic job with this book. It has so many different and perfectly crafted elements that work perfectly together to created an amazing story.

Never Look Back by A.L. Gaylin will keep you wanting until the very last page.
