Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.
This was one delicious book that I have read in recent times. Fast paced with a strong female protagonist, a good cop, bad guys, and a plot which moved with its own twists and turns.
Jenny was on a sleeper train, she helped a woman into her compartment, saw a child with her for a second, a tall man in the next compartment. The next day woman was dead, child was nowhere, and the tall man gone. No evidence of child or tall man anywhere on CCTV. Jenny started investigating along with the good cop Mike.
My first book by author Mason Cross, I couldn’t seem to let go of this book. One chapter became few chapters till I came to The End. It was quite amazing how the author kept my interest solely on his writing. The words came me a powerful imagery of the action in the scene and also the emotions.
I kept prodding the main characters as I knew how close the baddies were. At 72% the stakes turned really high and I could only read with bated breath hoping that the main character lives through her ordeal. The body count did rise at the end, but in a race against time to get to the truth, it was all part of fun. The book would make a great movie, fitting in nicely with coke and popcorn.
I loved it. A fantastic rip-roaring thriller of a read. Perfect for breakfast!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

No one will believe … WHAT SHE SAW LAST NIGHT.
Jenny Bowen is going home. Boarding the Caledonian Sleeper, all she wants to do is forget about her upcoming divorce and relax on the ten-hour journey through the night.
In her search for her cabin, Jenny helps a panicked woman with a young girl she assumes to be her daughter. Then she finds her compartment and falls straight to sleep.
Waking in the night, Jenny discovers the woman dead in her cabin … but there’s no sign of the little girl. The train company have no record of a child being booked on the train, and CCTV shows the dead woman boarding alone.
The police don’t believe Jenny, and soon she tries to put the incident out of her head and tells herself that everyone else is right: she must have imagined the little girl.
But deep down, she knows that isn’t the truth.
