The driver of the car she collided with has vanished without trace and Beth needs the recordings to help piece together exactly what happened. But somebody is viciously murdering the owners of the clips and deleting them.

"A very taut extremely fast paced novel that drags the reader into the spinning world of a psychopathic serial killer and doesn't let up until the very last pages. Scare Me is a book that readers will finish in one sitting and end up exhausted from event after horrifying event coming one after another. Excellent read and masterful fleshing out of people forced to comply with the dictates of lunacy, and this includes the motives of the killer explained at the book's ending." - BookBitch. "I dare you to read three pages of Scare Me and put it down.There's a reason why it's has already been optioned for film-and it's not even out yet! Lock your doors, keep the lights on and plan to stay up late, because this is one very clever scavenger hunt from hell that you won't want to miss!" - MyBookishWays.com "Full of tantaslising twists and turns, this novel keeps you guessing until the very last few pages and then teases you with the potential for more. An utterly fabulous crime novel that will keep you pinned to your seat." - TheTatooedBook.
