Tell Me I’m Wrong by Adam Croft


What if you discovered your husband was a serial killer?

Megan Miller is an ordinary woman with a young family — until a shocking discovery shatters her perfect world.

When two young boys are brutally murdered in their tight-knit village community, Megan slowly begins to realize the signs all point to the lovable local primary school teacher — her husband.

But when she begins to delve deeper into her husband’s secret life, she makes discoveries that will make her question everything she knows — and make her fear for her young daughter’s life.

Facing an impossible decision, she is desperate to uncover the truth. But once you know something, it can’t be unknown. And the more she learns, the more she wishes she never knew anything at all…

WARNING: Due to the nature of the storyline premise, there may be triggers for more sensitive readers.


I chose a psychological thriller from my TBR pile this time. Even though I guessed early on who the killer was, it was a thrilling read.

Tell Me I’m Wrong is a standalone read told from dual first-person perspectives. There is a child killer in a small, sleepy, peaceful village in England and secrets abound in the Miller home. If they come out, their lives will never be the same again.

Megan and Chris seem like any other couple dealing with a new baby, but Megan is finding signs that Chris is pulling away and hiding something. Not to mention the murder of two young boys in their small village has put everyone on edge. Chris is understandably upset because he is a teacher at the local school and knew both boys, and Megan finds damning evidence that could point at Chris as a suspect. Is her husband a serial killer?

Not everything is as it seems. Megan is dealing with a lot. Her mental health seems questionable as she goes deeper into depression and panic. Post-partum depression is no joke and when the lying Chris tries to gaslight her into thinking everything is in her mind, I was livid. However, there are other things at play and though Megan tries to justify her husband’s suspect actions, she jumps to conclusions that end in a terrible realization.  The more you get further into the book, the more your skin starts to crawl. I feel sorry for those little boys who didn’t deserve to die and I feel sorry for the Miller’s little girl who was not blessed with the best parents. The ending of this story is certainly not pleasant, but it was well worth the read. 

If you enjoy a good slide down the proverbial rabbit hole, give this gripping novel a try.  It was hard to put down.
