Truly, Darkly, Deeply

We rated this book:


Amelia Rose and her six-year-old daughter, Sophie, move to London for a fresh start. It isn’t long before Matty Melgren becomes a part of their lives. Sophie loves Matty, more than the father she can’t remember. The relationship is overshadowed when women begin disappearing, some bodies never found, all resembling Amelia. A serial killer is haunting London and when a sketch surfaces of the suspect, it looks a lot like Matty.

After six years of loving Matty, Sophie makes a choice which results in him being arrested and sentenced to life in prison. Eighteen years later, Sophie receives a letter from Matty informing her he’s dying and asking to see her. Will she finally get the truth?

I am a huge fan of criminal profiling and criminal psychology, so while this was fiction, it was fascinating to see things from the point of view of those who shared a personal relationship with an accused serial killer. I thought the author did a great job of handling Sophie’s character with grace. You can feel the guilt she experiences while also knowing she isn’t responsible for someone else’s actions. I highly recommend to fans of psychological thrillers.
