Tell Me My Name by Erin Ruddy

A vacation that was long overdue and needed for Neil and Ellie turned into a nightmare.

They were on their second honeymoon in their newly bought home when their neighbor Clive appeared, tied up Ellie, tortured Neil, and then kidnapped Ellie.

Clive had thought about Ellie since he had seen her twenty-five years ago, and now that he was out of prison he wanted to play a game to see if she would remember him.  It wasn’t a child’s game, though, but a deadly game.

TELL ME MY NAME continues with a police search for Clive and gruesome, upsetting and sometimes crude scenes and comments.

The brutal things the criminal did as the book continued were hard to imagine and difficult to read.   

Because of the gruesome scenes I almost stopped reading, but I’m glad I didn’t. 

This book for me is classified as a psychological thriller.

All in all despite the squeamish scenes, it is a good read with a surprise ending.  4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an. honest review.

    1. Would be awful if it were real.
