About the book:

We should never have kept our father’s secret.

Before, my sisters and I were close. Now, a year after our father’s funeral, we barely speak to each other. Molly won’t accept the truth. Rachel can’t forgive him. And I spend all my time digging through his life, trying to understand.

Then we hear the news. A woman has been found by the docks, her wedding ring stolen. The reporter says it appears the local serial killer has returned…

But I know that can’t be right, because I know who the killer was.

Henry Martin. Our father.

Someone is sending us a message. Someone knows we lied.

Now my sisters and I must work together to find out who is targeting us. How do they know what we’ve hidden? What do they want? And what other secrets lie buried in the past, putting us all in danger?

A brilliantly twisty suspense thriller that will have you flying through the pages and gasping at the twist. Fans of Lisa Jewell, Gillian Flynn and Ruth Ware will love The Killer’s Family.

The Killer’s Family by Miranda Smith is a thriller novel. The story in The Killer’s Family is one that is told by changing the point of view between the characters giving all sides to the story.

Sisters Molly, Cara, and Rachel have just lost their father only six months after having lost their mother. The women of course are all hit hard by the loss and dealing with their grief when they come across some things of their father.

It looks as if their father may have been the serial killer that police have been looking for years in their town and the women don’t know what to make of it. When they decide to cover up the evidence and murders begin happening again the women hope that their father was not who they think he was.

I have an obsession with books about a killer’s family and who is left behind so when seeing The Killer’s Family by Miranda Smith I figured it would be right up my alley. Also having read this author before I expect also to find a twisty tale which it did become. I wouldn’t say this one was totally top notch though as parts did seem a little repetitive and it slowed the story down some. Overall I thought this one came in at three and a half stars for me and I would still return to this author again.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
