About the Book:
He isn’t who you think he is…When Leah Talbot hits a deer on a deserted road near her village she spots a light on in a nearby house and approaches, hoping that someone is home. He is. Charming, handsome, Martin Tate answers the door to the bedraggled and traumatised Leah, inviting her in. Though she’s not there for long, Leah feels an indescribable pull to the man who has helped in her hour of need. But when she returns the next morning to say thank you, it isn’t Martin who answers the door this time. It’s the police. There’s been a brutal murder and the sole female resident is dead. There’s no sign of Martin…Until he comes looking for Leah.
I thought this book was an absolute page turner - could not go to sleep without an extra chapter, and the chapters are not too lengthy , so it was easy to get carried away...beautifully crafted and gripping right up until the finale.
R.J. Parker captivates with a provocative story and he does a brilliant job of making the characters and their relationships flawed, but still believable. The story has an interesting concept and interweaving characters that keep the reader enthralled throughout, a well structured and well written tale with an excellent plot- well done. I don't want to put any spoilers but if you love a fast paced psychological thriller this one has a lot going for it - Intense.
Thank you NetGalley, R.J. Parker and HarperCollins UK, One More Chapter for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
