Many thanks to publisher Head of Zeus for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A brilliant book by author Ruth Mancini. An edge of the seat thriller which kept me completely engrossed in the darkness of the night of New Year’s Eve.
Sarah Kellerman a solicitor went to meet her friend Will at the hospital where she saw a man on the next bed whom she knew from work. A hit and run victim. Mark. A cop who had wife and kids who were never notified about the accident. Sarah took over.
My first book by this author, and the main character grew on me as I kept reading. She was as tenacious as a bull dog and her bite was as strong as her bark. The writing invited me to enter the dark tunnel of the story where I could see no light. It was smooth and compulsive.
Sarah kept my interest focused on her. There were times when I wanted to tap a warning on her shoulder, but nothing could sway her. The character was quite foolhardy but I couldn’t fault her sense of justice. The book was swift paced as it moved on. Twin lights could be seen when Sarah received help from unexpected quarters.
And the ending… Oh damn… It was explosive. I suspected one aspect of it and I was blown away by what the author revealed right at the end.
An explosive, thrilling read.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Sarah barely recognises the man she once worked with – he was honorable and kind – what was he involved in? Who wanted him dead? But in her race to uncover the truth, Sarah comes to realise that there are two men in her life that she never really knew at all…
