Book Review: No Going Back by Casey Kelleher #Netgalley #BookReview

Hello guys. I’m back with a new review from Casey Kelleher. Hope you enjoy this!

Title: No Going Back


Pages: 286 pages

Published: April 29th 2021

Publisher: Bookouture


A child has been taken. A family is out for revenge.

Riley Cooke is just one day old when he is stolen from the hospital. His young mother, Shelby, is beside herself. DC Lucy Murphy and her team face a race against time to find the vulnerable baby and bring him home – before the child’s grandfather, fearsome gangster Pete Baker, takes matters into his own hands.

Pete is sure he knows who’s behind baby Riley’s abduction, and he thinks they ought to pray Lucy finds them before he does. Because someone is going to pay dearly for causing this much pain to his family.

They say never stand between a gangster and his target. But that’s exactly what Lucy must do – because if Pete is wrong, innocent blood could flow.

A shocking and addictive read that will keep you turning the pages. Fans of Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers and Emma Tallon will love this. 

Last month I read No Going Back by Casey Kelleher. It was a fast paced Thriller, about the disappearance of a new born baby from the hospital, and accusing fingers at practically everyone.

The setting was great, has a well thought out plot, but I didn’t like how it kept dragging especially from the beginning. I was tempted to DNF it, but I just decided to keep on reading. It was towards the middle, the real action started, making it interesting.

I also don’t know why most thriller action books have to include this ‘detective-with-a-horrible-past-assigned-to-a-case-with-a-similiar-story’. It’s all so cliche! What is the detective expected to do? Solve this crime and solve their own personal problems?! Oh, and the superiors always keep on asking, ‘Are you okay with this case? Can you handle it?’ 😬😬
Here too, the Detective had a very horrible childhood and now has to relive it because of this case. At least here, I’m glad it wasn’t dwelled on a lot.

Anyways, it was still a good read. Full of action. I love the mafia side story that was included, with bits of suspense. I already guessed who the kidnapper was, but finding out at the end was quite intriguing, most especially what her reaction would be.


Casey Kelleher was born in Cuckfield, West Sussex. Growing up she became an avid reader, loving in particular gritty crime thrillers and gangland books.
