Many thanks to Sarah and BOTBS Publicity for my spot on this Blog Tour.
I really, really don’t know if I can do justice to the book with this review. But I will try my best.
Alex Caan is fucking brilliant!! His writing… Oh my freak… It hit me right between my eyes, a hard round, which stopped my breath. With personal lives and past of the lead detectives slowly being interweaved with the layers of investigation, this master conductor swayed the direction of the story so effortlessly that the winds blew in almost a synchronized way. It was nothing short of brilliant. I read the entire book with bated breath.
Millie and Oscar had a dream destination wedding and honeymoon in Istanbul, but those were only for the photographs. Something was brewing between them. Then came their kidnapping at their honeymoon but Millie’s tortured and dead body was found in UK. Go figure… In fact it were the lead Detectives Sarah and Moomy who were given this convoluted case.
My first book by this author, man, had I been living under a rock? I didn’t expect it to be so exciting, my due apologies to the author for underestimating him. How do I write about the eagerness that struck me when I started reading? How do I show about the way the book slowly enveloped me within itself, entrancing me? How do I explain the craving that overwhelmed me to know the truth? The book did all that and more.
Sarah and Alex, do I need to write anymore? Let me try… The book was The Unbroken but I was broken, the words to feelings felt unsaid… I wanted to use a lot of swear words with the superlatives, but this was a family blog… Sighhh… 😂 😂
The police investigation was swift with the brains of the lead detectives working overtime. The pages turned almost by itself, I was lost into the suspense of the story. The author was a master strategist who knew how to make the pieces of subplots fit seamlessly as well lay down the foundation of the main characters for the subsequent books.
That’s it, my brain is broken. No more words can spew forth. I am done!!
I freaking loved the book!!
And that’s all I am saying!!
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.

Millie didn’t get time to think. The car door was pulled open and she was dragged out, her screams loud and raw, as she kicked and fought. She called out for Oscar, again and again, screaming for help.
But he never came.
It was the wedding of the year. Millie Beaumont marrying billionaire playboy Oscar Hayat, the eyes of the world watching.
But the dream turns into a nightmare when Millie and Oscar are brutally abducted while on honeymoon. Millie is killed, her body dumped in London. Oscar is still missing…
Enter DS Moomy Khan and DI Sarah Heaton – not your typical police officers. Moomy is running from her own troubled past, while Sarah is having to live with the hard choices she has made. Yet they will stop at nothing to find Millie’s murderers and track down Oscar. Only a family as high profile as the Hayats have enemies lurking in every corner – have they taken the ultimate revenge, or is someone else behind the death and kidnapping?
And can Moomy and Sarah find Oscar – before time runs out and he suffers the same fate as his wife?
