Today I am reviewing on its publication day The Victim by Gillian Jackson, published by Bloodhound Books.
She’s killed her husband—and now she must convince the police that she is not the villain but the victim…
Caron Rivers appeared to have it all. Lovely home. Loving spouse. Happy marriage. But behind closed doors, things were not what they seemed.
Why did Caron snap and kill Bill? Now she finds herself at the police station, facing questions about exactly what happened and what led to the shocking event. With Bill dead, she is free to tell her story.
But the police may not believe it, in this gripping novel of emotional and psychological suspense from the author of Abductionand The Accident.
Her husband is dead…Was it an accident…
Did she or didn’t she? That is the million dollar question that you will have rolling around in your head whilst reading this absolutely riveting book. Fraught with so much tension right from the opening chapter, I was immediately hooked and glued to the pages.
I enjoyed this story and connected with it and its cast of characters. I found Caron Rivers to be such a fascinating character and throughout she really messed with my head. Is she really the victim of physical and mental abuse, or a master manipulator and cold blooded killer? The road to the answer was one twisty ride bringing with it a thrilling outcome!
Thank you to Gillian Jackson and Bloodhound Books for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Victim, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

Let’s Get to Know Gillian Jackson
Gillian lives in Darlington in the North East of England with her husband and rescue dog, Liffey. With four adult children and nine grandchildren, there is always plenty to do, but her passion for writing occupies much of her time.
After a career in child care as the owner/manager of a day nursery, Gillian changed course and trained as a therapeutic counsellor. Following this, five years working in the voluntary sector for Victim Support brought a whole new range of experiences as she supported victims of crimes, from burglary to homicide.
Combining these experiences with a lifelong love of writing, Gillian often writes about gritty issues, but with a sensitive touch.
