My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Somebody Wants To Kill Me by Richard Rees is a riveting psychological thriller filled with deceit, greed, secrets and jealousy. Karen, has become a wealthy young woman unexpectedly and has a whirlwind romance with Paul. When they return from their honeymoon to her father’s estate, nothing seems to go her way. She didn’t want to return from Italy, or live on the estate. But Paul was a former actor and decided he’d quit his job to write a novel. He loved the quiet and peace of the location.

I loved this book! Usually, I figure out who the culprit is before I am halfway through a novel. For once, I was absolutely stumped! I kept switching who I thought was a suspect. I also enjoyed that the list of possible suspects kept getting longer and longer. By the end, I believe everyone was a suspect in my book. The anticipation was driving me crazy, so much so that I read it in two days. The best part was the reference of the crows. In my mind’s eye, I pictured the really old Alfred Hitchcock movie “Birds”. I thought that was a fantastic idea! Everyone usually makes some spin on Alfred Hitchcock’s movie “Rear Window”.

The only part of this book that I didn’t like was that I was unable to solve the case. Richard Rees, I’ll get you next time, you’ve got a new fan! This is a well deserved 5 out of 5 stars.

Anyone that loves a complex psychological thriller, will be completely enthralled. This one will keep you guessing. I know I thoroughly enjoyed this one, my expectations of a good novel has just gotten remarkably higher.
