The Perfect Daughter by Kerry Wilkinson ~ Publication Day 9/15/21 ~ @bookouture @kerrywk #psychologicalthriller ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


Rain pounds the windscreen in the pitch-black evening. She knows this winding country road like the back of her hand, dodges the potholes with ease. But then she hears a crunch. A thud. She slams on the brakes.

Since Katie’s dad left it’s just been the two of us, but we’re a team – singing in the kitchen at cheesy pop songs, tackling her homework. My teenage daughter is everything to me.

But one night, as we’re curled up in front of the TV, the messages start. I keep my phone away from Katie so she can’t see the terrifying words: I know what you did. Now you’re going to do something for me…

I have no choice but to obey. Because if I go to the police, come clean about what I did to protect my girl, all the questions and prying eyes would soon discover Katie’s secret too. And that would tear her life apart.

So I drive where they tell me, do what they say, send the photo evidence they want. I feel sick when they ask me to cause someone harm, and it’s clear they know everything about our lives. I thought I was keeping a secret to keep my girl safe. But have I actually put her in even more danger?


When you really think about it, one single moment in time can alter the course of your life forever.

For Jennifer, that cold day in December felt like every other day. Late to pick up her daughter from football practice and distracted by her phone while driving was “that moment”. From that point on, Jennifer’s life would never be the same.

When she begins to receive anonymous text messages from someone claiming to know “what she did”, she begins complying with their demands.

Anon: I know what you did.

  1. Jennifer made a split second decision to walk away after she knew she was guilty of a horrific crime.
  2. Someone knows what she did.
  3. Jennifer is scared.
  4. Don’t be like Jennifer…

Anon: Everyone is safe and will stay that way if you do as you’re told. Do it today.

It isn’t until many things go terribly wrong for Jennifer that she begins to realize …

This is my fault…

Two seconds…

All because of two seconds…

So readers… what will Jennifer do? Will she comply with the most absurd request of all from her anonymous texter to save her own arse? Or will she come clean to save her daughter despite her own fate?
