Welcome to Camp Killer by Cynthia Murphy


It’s Dyslexia Awareness Week and spooky season so what could be better than a deadly Barrington Stoke thriller by horror queen Cynthia Murphy?

Welcome To Camp Killer starts out with a group of teenagers at an American-style residential camp on the grounds of a stately home with a gruesome past. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, quite a few things as it turns out. A kayaking accident, a fatal fall…but are they just coincidences? Or is there malice involved?

Full of tantalising twists and red herrings, this whodunnit will have you reaching for the big light switch as you wade deeper into the lives of the teenage camp instructors – each one a potential suspect – until the killer’s vengeful motive, cleverly woven into the story, becomes deathly clear.

This YA slasher lulled me into a false sense of security before going in for the kill. Reading it felt getting onto a fairground attraction that seem safe at first, then quickly had me clinging on for dear life.

A thrilling read for ages 13+ – for both confident readers and those who have to work a little harder.
