Even the darkest secrets can’t stay hidden forever…

When twenty-nine-year-old Cynthia Galbraith struggles to come to terms with her traumatic past and the realities of prison life, a prison counsellor persuades her to write a diary exploring the events that led to a life sentence for murder.

Although unconvinced at first, Cynthia finally decides she has all the time in the world and very little, if anything, to lose. As she begins writing she holds back nothing: sharing the thoughts she hadn’t dare vocalise, the things that keep her awake at night and haunt her waking hours.

Will the truth finally be revealed?


This book was not what I excepted it to be. But it was so much more. When Evil Calls Your Name follows the events after book 1 White is the Coldest Colour. Book 1 was one of the most darkest and disturbing psychological thriller I have ever read. I can’t say the same for When Evil Calls Your Name, but this was such a marvelous read. This book is in the form of a memoir. It is from Cynthia’s point of view. We get to see how her life is in the prison. We walk with her and see how the monster Dr.David Galbraith manipulated and destroyed so many lives, especially Cynthia’s. When starting this book, I had excepted it to be a disturbing read just like book 1, but that was not the case. Reading the behind-the-scenes of how Galbraith functioned makes you all the more detest him, and therefore increases the intensity of book 1. What amazes me the most is that, given the format of the book was such that I should have been bored. But I wasn’t, not even for a minute. The author’s storytelling skills are so astonishing that I was completely hooked on to the book. And this book had the perfect end Cynthia could deserve. I am glad I read this book.

Warning! Read book 1 White is the Coldest Colour before reading this book. This book will make the right impact if, and only if, you have read book 1 first.


Final Verdict:

When Evil Calls Your Name by John Nicholl gets 5 out of 5 stars from me.
