One Left Alive by Helen Phifer Book Summary

‘One of those rare books that really is unputdownable. A must read.’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A gentle breeze blew her blonde hair across her face, her glazed eyes staring blankly into the sunset. Her small frame looked lost hanging from the large oak tree. On the branch next to her was a worn child’s rope swing. She looked too young and beautiful to be dead.

When the body of a woman is found hanging from a tree in her front garden, rookie Detective Morgan Brookes is first on the scene. But Olivia Potter is past saving. And when her husband and daughters cannot be traced, Morgan knows there is more to this tragedy. And then she finds them. Lying huddled together in the dark basement, each of their faces covered with a small cotton cloth, their bodies cold to the touch.  

But as Morgan kneels beside the family, she realises that one of the girls is still breathing. As she holds Bronte’s fragile hand in hers, begging her to hold on, she vows to find out who has done this.

Every day Morgan wakes at 4.25 a.m., her old insomnia now mixed with a new fixation on the case. But every clue about the murdered family leads to a dead end. Until, trawling through old files, she discovers a link to a cold case from years ago. Another family was found murdered, their innocent faces covered with white cloths.

When Morgan returns to the scene of the crime to discover more about this forgotten case, she finds another body. With Bronte still unconscious in hospital, Morgan must act fast to solve this case before the killer returns for the girl left alive…

A chilling and gripping crime thriller that will have fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Rachel Caine glued to the page.

Great!. Great plot with twists and turns to keep you hooked until the end! Excellent character chemistry.

One Left Alive. This was so good, I finished it in 2 days. Wow TY

Lost Interest. The story dragged on and was repetitive. No real development of characters , or plot. Story dragged one

One Left Alivt. Excellent Thriller Quality Characters Edge of seat reading

Great murder mystery!. I enjoyed reading this book. It had me turning the next page to see what happens next

Decent. Not much of a mystery murder book buff but this one was good 😊

Very good book!. I hated reading but now I love it, this book converted me all the way it has 14 chapters and I’m already on chapter 5, I’m hooked on ready to find out what happens! 5/5 must read !!!

Amazing. I loved every part of the book. I felt like I was so real while reading. I couldn’t put it down!

Thrilling. This story is one that you won’t want to put down!

An addictive book that puts readers in the heart of a UK detective unit. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It brought me into the heart a UK police unit; the ins and outs of everyday detective life was present at all times. I got to know the characters and their personalities, building a connection to each of them. Helen brings humor, gore, mystery, courage in every chapter and I recommend this to anyone who is interested in crime dramas.

Great story. This was a great read. Once I started reading. I continued to read for so long. Really got into the characters. I enjoyed the story.

Super interesting!. It felt like I was watching one of those detective mini-series from England. This book had me on my edge twice; I felt my heart palpitations occasionally. LOVE it. I’m definitely reading the rest of the series.

Nice easy read!. Great read, some good twists and turns and well written!

Twisty!. Great twist. Last couple of chapters had me on the edge of my seat.

Couldn’t put it down. I read this book in 2 days! Great twists and turns with each chapter!

Got me back into reading. I’ve been on hiatus as I haven’t found anything worth reading until this book. Hard to find any decent books as the reviews are a mess. I wish Apple would allow reviews to be reported and get rid of the rubbish overtaking the section.

Page turner. Well written. Well balanced with the life of a couple of the detectives and the crime. Finished the book quickly. Nice twist at the end.

Well written and hard to put down!. The story line and character development were clever and interesting. I recommend the book and the author.

Corny. Unnecessary details and dialogue. Corny. Not a thriller.

One left alive. I love thrillers, keeps me guessing, I love her books.

First rate!. This is a great police suspense novel. The writing is exceptionally good, the story gripping. Highly recommended!

Very good and riveting.. A good read and fast paced.

A Super “Who done it”.. Keeps you in suspense until the very end. Great reading

yeahh. it was pretty good!! just got boring sometimes

Love it. It caught me from the jump and loved it through out the whole book. Excited to read the next

Boing!. Couldn’t stop reading!

Real page turner. Loved the plot. Only thing I hated was how it was constantly brought up about how Morgan felt she needed to prove herself. Ending was great

Extremely disappointing. I’ve never read a book before and regretted reading it. With this one I did. I had a couple issues with it. For starters, the book seems as if it was written by a high school girl. The “romance/flirting” between adults was extremely immature and made me feel like I was reading a watt pad fanfic. I honestly couldn’t take the book seriously because the adult interactions and their POVs were so childish. Also, there was literally NO plot twist. I mean seriously, I’ve never been so underwhelmed. I kept reading because I thought there was going to be a good twist, but the “twist” was barely anything, saw it coming from a mile away, she basically gave it away half way through the book. There’s just no depth to it, it’s very surface level and anti climactic. Giving it 2 stars because I feel bad and I’m sure the author is a nice lady.

Police procedural murder mystery. Well thought tale and well written. Recommend to anyone liking the genre.

One left alive. Very good, really enjoyed reading this book.

PHENOMENAL!!!. I’m extremely picky about what books I read and unfortunately most books lose me before the halfway mark, especially mysteries, crime, etc. But Helen Phifer is a fantastic author… I couldn’t put it down!!! Looking forward to reading more from her!

One left alive. Good book kept your interest.

Great!. Couldn’t put it down. Exciting from beginning to end

Right to the plot. A very enjoyable read, well done.

Interesting and easy read- fast paced. Interesting book- not predictable, although there aren’t many characters. The development of characters is great and the story is good. I wish the ending didn’t seem as rushed, but a great book everall

One Left Alive. Wonderful Read! Well Done, Helen! Captured England Perfectly! Keep Writing and Godspeed!

Family murder thriller. Really enjoyed this thriller. Kept me guessing most of the way through. Love the female detective, Morgan. On her 1st day as an independent rookie she is called to a horrific murder of 3 family members and a teenage girl who was left for dead. And she begins working on the detective crew to find the answers for the “why”.

A must read. This book had me on the edge of my seat, from start to end. A dark twisted story that surprises you every step of the way. This was such a good read. I was so absorbed in the story I just couldn’t put it down. Definitely a must read for anyone who loves a good thriller slash murder mystery.

Gripping Story. Great book; although, sometimes difficult to track which character is talking. The punctuation and grammar needs work.

Not as ominous as the title. Was fun at the beginning but the “twist”at the end didn’t quite feel like a twist, felt pretty anticlimactic.

One Left Alive. A little sappy but definitely a good read.

One Left alive. Good read.

One Left Alive. Great book…

Mystery lovers should love this. Interesting case, interesting characters, well written. I’ll be reading more from this author.

Excellent murder mystery. Well written, characters nicely developed and kept me reading late into the night. I will be reading more of this author’s work.

One Left Alive. Really good read the plot was awesome lot of twists. Thanks k

Excellent. I enjoyed this book ! Kept me coming back and on my toes. .

Loved!. Kept me glued!

10/10 in every aspect. A through and through amazing read. I haven’t enjoyed a book this much since I was younger and the way this book uses descriptive words makes it like watching a movie. I will recommend this book to everyone I know forever. If you’re seeking a book that will draw you back for more every time you put it down, this is the book for you

Liga Ligaya’s review folks!. This book was absolutely amazing! I had never really been interested in crime and murder mysteries (they always either bored or scared me😂) but this one I could not put down! I was so involved in the story and was amazed by her style of writing. Every second of the reading my brain was working trying to figure out who the killer was and when I came up with a solid conclusion something happened an I was back to square one rethinking the whole thing! I felt like a detective myself! Hats of to the author because I ADORED it and I’m a pretty hard judge when it comes to books and movies. I usually throw up when there is any kind of romance because it bores me to death (and I’m a 14 year old girl!) but this one between (well I don’t wanna spoil it so just read the book) but it really got me wrapped up and is as mysterious as the crime itself (I hope there’s something going on between them otherwise I’m just a fool😅). I would definitely recommend it (if that wasn’t clear to you yet) and am already going to purchase the rest of the series! Can’t wait for the next one!

Gripping. Read the whole book in about 4hours straight! Couldn’t put it down!

Absolute page turner!. I couldn’t stop reading, this book gripped my attention from start to end. Could’ve read it in one sitting but wanted to stretch the time out so it didn’t end so quickly. Defo top of my list of best books for this month. Love it!!!

Addicted!. It was great. Couldn’t put it down

HOLYYY CRAPPP. I read this over a few nights so probably 3/4 nights and finished it I was glued to every page from the get go! I’ve not read a book this good in years!!! AMAZING

Read it!. Loved it!!

Couldn’t stop reading. A real page turner I read this in 3 days. Such great characters and brilliant story line twists and turns would highly recommend

Real page turner. Now I can get back to earning a living ….. have neglected my business as I literally couldn’t put this book down until I reached the end. Don’t start reading this if you h@ve stuff to do!

Amazingly addictive. Amazing was hooked from page one. Can’t wait to read book 2 in the series.

One Left Alive. A very, very, good read.

Lakes detective story. Great read

Great read. Couldn’t put it down, excellent read

Fantastic!. I loved reading this book, it was so good I couldn’t put it down! It kept me gripped to the end! Morgan is a great detective, she was good at finding clues to the murders - I won’t say anymore to spoil it for others to read!

One left Alive. Very gentle read. Love it

amazing. kept you wanting to know more the whole time , ended quite abruptly though

Brilliant, hooked straight awsy. This was a brilliant story line that hooked me from the first page. You almost felt you were there with Morgan and wanted to know what happened next. Thought she would get the guy in the end though, maybe next time!

Read it in 2 days. Read it in 2 days - couldn’t put it down.

5/5. Read in one go.

Gripping!. Fantastic read, straight from the first page.

Excellent!. Totally engrossed after reading the first page!! Could not put it down…excellent!!!

Gripping. Really enjoyed this book. Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop.

One gets left alive. Absolutely fantastic

I had to read on. I got the second book and didn’t know about this one. So easy to read I didn’t want to put down. Love the style of writing and I would recommend can’t wait to start number two.

Absolutely amazing. Amazing! Could not stop reading!

Gripping triller. I really enjoyed this book, it was so easy to read and the story kept you gripped from the beginning. I will definitely be reading more books by Helen.

Loved this book. Brilliant read! Would recommend to any who love a good murder mystery!

Very tame!. This was like reading a mills and boon detective story.... not at all what I was hoping for. If you like crime thrillers with not much true to life content and a side of romance then you might like this but not at all for me. It was far too tame and unrealistic.

Fabulous. Had me on the edge of my chair for the 2 daha it took me to read it. Just one point. I have yet to hear of any police force putting a Sargent in charge of a murder case.

Good read. Enjoyable easy reading - fairly good plot not too difficult to work out who did it but will likely read another in the series

What a book!!!!. I could not put it down. Each page made me want to carry on reading. Even went to bed early so I could read another couple of chapters and then some.

Great. Great book really enjoyed reading.

Fast paced and exciting. I really enjoyed the storyline and the twists along the way. Kept me guessing to the end

What a read. Absolutely gripping!

Captivating. Invested from chapter 1. Great story and the writer keeps the story evolving at pace. Highly recommend if crime novels preferred.

A promising start to a new series. Helen Phifer is back and on fire with this first instalment in a new series featuring Detective Morgan Brookes. One Left Alive is one thrilling read and what you will read inside this book will leave you completely shook! The house on the book cover may look idyllic, but the horror of what takes place inside, will chill you to the bone! The story comes to life right from the first chapter and no time is wasted getting things going. Never at any time does Helen Phifer take her foot off the accelerator, making this a super fast read. It is overflowing with tension and suspense, while littered with red herrings and twists and turns along the way to keep you on your toes. While I thought the ending was a little bit rushed, there were no loose ends and everything is tied up nicely. What I think that Helen Phifer does best in her books, is the development of her characters. Each are meticulously created, believable and you are able to resonate with them. Morgan as the lead, is a force to be reckoned with and I throughly enjoyed her character. She carries the role of a lead on her shoulders well and I look forward to getting to know her more in future books. As an established author who knows her way around the crime thriller genre, Helen Phifer does such a great job at getting her readers attention straight away, as well as keeping it which she expertly does here. Her writing is smooth and engaging and each chapter leaves you wanting more. She really is an asset to the writing community and the crime thriller genre. One Left Alive really is one ripper of a read and is such a great start to a new series. It is definitely one that I look forward to seeing grow and I am thrilled that we only need to wait until December for the second instalment. It was a pleasure to be able to read and review One Left Alive which I highly recommend. Thank you to Helen Phifer, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of One Left Alive, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

One left alive. Absolutely gripping book, saddened that I cannot see the further books in the series as ebooks.

One left alive.. Great read,couldn’t put it down until finished.

One Left Alive.. Loved the book- engaging from the get go. Was a little disappointed in the ending as it was a bit quick and simple, but all in all a great read!!

Hard to read.. Hard to read. I have read previous reviews of this story that sing its praises, however I disagree with most of them. This author has problems remembering what was written previously, then just plows ahead anyway. I won’t bother with examples, however I suggest that the author/authors carefully rewrite this story. Just way too many discrepancies and errors in this 'romantic fictional fantasy' for the story to be enjoyable.
