This dark, addictive thriller will have you gripped until the final, shocking twist. Fans of Behind Closed Doors, The Guest List and The Wife Between Us will be hooked by the latest page-turner from US top five bestseller Alison James.

My Review:

Well, how do I even do justice to this book? I was totally addicted to this book and it was responsible for some late nights!

We are transported to the beautiful setting of the Maldives, but already you can tell that there’s a chilling undercurrent and that something bad is going to happen. There’s just a feeling that all is not as idyllic as it seems.

This book has such a clever and twisty plot, and the events in the Maldives are just the beginning of a complex and fascinating web of lies and deceit.

I liked Pippa as a character, and her relationship with Jim is an interesting one. I won’t say too much for fear of spoiling the plot, but I liked the way they worked together, and there was a bit of a frisson of attraction between them, which added an element of “will they/won’t they” to the story.

There are so many layers to the plot, which covers murder, fraud and a host of complicated relationships. With some exotic and atmospheric locations and a really enthralling storyline, I found this a totally compelling read. All the threads of the plot come together nicely in the end, after some rather dramatic events. A really addictive and thrilling book.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.
