Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite The Devil came to Abbeville by Marian Phair is a horror story to end all horror stories. The story opens with a 17-year-old girl, smothered in blood, dying in the arms of Father O'Connor but there are few clues.  Then Sally, a girl blinded in an accident, and her friend Liam go on a picnic and go missing. Sally is found alive but Liam is dead and the perpetrator is Percy Grimes, also found dead with a white rose on his body. The bodies begin to pile up and DCI Fletcher has his work cut out trying to track down a vicious vigilante. An ex-profiler from the USA, Scott Holden, is on holiday and he is enlisted to help find out who is behind the murders. Will they find out who is responsible before any more murders occur or will the death toll continue to rise? The Devil Came to Abbeville by Marian Phair was an excellent book. I did have my suspicions as to who the murderer was about half way through the book, but even so I wasn’t certain until right at the very end. It kept me hooked right from the opening sentence and I couldn’t let go until I had read it all the way through. Excellent book, well thought out plot, great story line and great characters. Ms Phair has a real winner on her hands with this one – just be prepared for a bit of to-ing and fro-ing in the story line but it’s all worth it at the end!
