Book Review: The Mistake by K. L. Slater

I had previously read two of K. L. Slater’s novels which I had really enjoyed therefore I picked up The Mistake in anticipation of a thrilling read.

Sixteen years after the disappearance and death of her eight year old brother, Billie, Rose still blames herself for his death. She has never fully recovered from the trauma, and one of the few people she trusts is her neighbour Ronnie, a man she has known her whole life. But one day Ronnie falls ill and Rose goes to help him. What she finds in his attic room turns her life upside down. Rose thought she knew the truth about what had happened to her brother, and she thought she knew her neighbour. As she looks back into the past, she knows is that she is in danger.

I enjoyed this novel and completed it in a day – I could not put it down! The author kept me guessing with the unexpected twists in the story. Some of my guesses turned out to be incorrect, and some of the twists were surprises. If the story were a film, I would have had to resist the urge to cover my eyes. The Mistake is a thriller that will keep you engrossed and turning the pages until you reach the end of the story. I highly recommend this read if your preferred genre is the psychological thriller.

I give this novel ⭐⭐⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 stars.
