Don't Turn Around: A dark, suspenseful crime novel (Detective Jennifer Knight Crime Thriller Series Book 1)


You don't know him. But he knows you.
Soon he would be able to touch her, to feel the warmth of her blood. And when the time came, nothing would stop him.
AsD.C. Jennifer Knight investigates a routine stabbing in the quiet town of Haven, she is shocked at what seems like a personal message from beyond the grave.

When more bodies are found, Jennifer is convinced the killings are somehow linked. What she discovers is more chilling than she could possibly imagine. The murders mirror those of the notorious Grim Reaper - from over twenty years ago. A killer her mother helped convict.

Jennifer can no longer ignore the personal connection. Is there a copycat killer at work? Was the wrong man convicted? Or is there something more sinister at play …

With her mother's terrifying legacy spiralling out of control, Jennifer must look into her own dark past in a fight not only to stop a killer - but to save herself and those she loves.

A heart-stopping supernatural thriller to engross fans of Rachel Abbott, Paul Finch and James Oswald.

Q&A with Caroline Mitchell
Q: What was the inspiration behind Don't Turn Around?
A: I wanted to bring my readers on a journey and based it on two of the most thrilling subjects I know - police and the paranormal. I had several ideas for my first novel but Frank Foster's character came to me one sleepless night and refused to go away.

Q: Like D.C. Jennifer Knight, you have had some terrifying paranormal experiences. How much of your own background has gone into the novel? And do you see much of yourself in Jennifer?
A: In my true story, we were plunged into the world of the supernatural, as our home became a virtual playground for a real life 'Paranormal Intruder'. Both D.C. Knight and I had to dig deep to cope with the frightening challenges before us. As a police officer myself, I know how hard it is to open up to your colleagues when your world begins to collapse around you.

Q: And can you tell us a little about what's next for D.C Knight?
A: In book two Jennifer is challenged to the limit when she crosses paths with a man known as The Raven, a tarot card reader hiding a deadly secret.
