The debut novel from Jack Jordan tackles a subject so difficult and so dark you'd only expect a seasoned professional to do it justice. Jack has written with all the confidence and style of a man born to write. There are many themes in 'My Girl' - grief, depression, addiction, abuse - all of which are hard to write and convince the reader to believe in your characters and the story. Jack Jordan has done that perfectly. We meet Paige as she is living through every woman's nightmare - her daughter has been murdered and her husband took his own life, unable to cope with the loss of their only child. Paige is alone and existing only how she knows how - through drinking and her addiction to prescription drugs. This first part of the story where we get to understand Paige's life is expertly written with heart and soul. You feel for Paige immediately and will her to beat her demons. However, a plot twist comes out of nowhere to throw you off your guard and you find yourself in the middle of a claustrophobic psychological horror that will stay with you long after the final page. Unpredictable, unsettling, unnerving and totally compelling. Jack Jordan is a thriller writer to watch out for.
