Appearances can be deceptive…
Arnold Eastwood is thrilled when social services allocate him a flat all of his own. Independence hasn’t come easily to a young man with Downs Syndrome but now he has the chance to live free from his mum’s nagging, find a girlfriend, watch endless movies and make new friends.
Meanwhile a London drug gang is setting up a supply line in Arnold’s town. They’re looking for someone to deliver drugs for them and somewhere to set up a base of operations.
Soon Arnold and his flat are in the drug gang’s sights. Drawn into the dark underworld of crack cocaine and modern slavery, Arnold soon discovers that friends can in fact be deadly enemies.
The question is: can he break free?

Knock Knock..”Who’s There”.. A chilling suspense thriller that will get you in its grip and hold on tight until the very end! A chilling tale that at times had my heart racing and on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it was all going to unfold. This is definitely a nail biter for sure and will have you reading well into the night. I also have to mention how brilliant the cover of the book is, which gave me goosebumps when I first laid eyes on it and where it sets the tone and compliments the story perfectly.
Kerena has crafted a thrilling plot that sees defenceless Arnold trying to start a new life by branching out on his own to live independently away from his protective family for the first time. Living with Down’s syndrome, there is reason for his family to be concerned, when a local drug ring gets him in their sights and take advantage of his disability and trusting nature by involving him in their evil scheme.
I absolutely adored the character of Arnold and he is the standout character for me. I don’t think I have actually read a book where the lead character has Down syndrome so this was refreshing and a welcome change. A beautiful soul just trying to live his life to the fullest who is taken advantage of by the evils in this world.
I really enjoyed Kerena’s style and everything flowed really well which made this for a relatively quick and easy read. She has done a really great job with all of the characters who have been well developed and very well written. Kerena also did a great job of building tension and suspense throughout which kept my attention and it was really hard to put the book down at times.
Who’s There is a great read and is the perfect example of why I never answer my door when someone comes knocking unless I know who is on the other side! A chilling plot with a satisfying conclusion, great characters and engaging writing that will keep you enthralled. It was an absolute pleasure to read and review Who’s There which I recommend.
