APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Amid the wealth of psychological thrillers available, Alice Feeney’s debut novel stands out for its brilliant construction and shocking climax. Amber Reynolds is locked in a coma, grasping at memories from the near and distant past as she tries to piece together what’s happened to her. The mystery is even trickier for readers to unpick because Amber admits to a previous tendency towards chicanery and half-truths. Feeney writes in fresh, pin-sharp prose as she drives her fascinatingly flawed characters towards one final, gob-smacking twist.
Almost nothing is as it initially appears in BBC News veteran Feeney's bold if overambitious debut, a serpentine tale of betrayal, madness, and murder. Amber Reynolds, a radio show presenter, is lying in a London-area hospital in a coma the day after Christmas, body unresponsive but mind alert, struggling to piece together what happened to her and whether it has anything to do with Paul, her husband (whom the police suspect), or Claire, the younger sister she fears Paul's fallen for. Not to mention the menacing man who sneaks into her hospital room. But as days pass and memories flood back both from the turbulent previous weeks, when she was fighting to keep her job and near-frantic about Paul being unfaithful, and from the particularly fraught year when she was 11 it becomes clear that this is an infinitely more sinister story. Feeney packs the final 60-odd pages with a series of head-spinning and, in some cases, head-scratching plot twists; the overall effect is to leave readers wondering exactly what happened and how much of Amber's account they can believe. Feeney is definitely a writer to watch.
This book really keeps you on your toes. Every twist and turn leaves you feeling you need to concentrate harder. Brilliant, I hope there will be a sequel one day.
Interesting but confusing
I really liked this book, read it in less than a day but didn’t understand the ending and from doing a quick search online a lot of others didn’t either but came up with some things I hadn’t thought of.
Loved the book. It keeps you in suspense dor the most par. Just when you think you have firgured it out, oh no, 180 degree turn. Had a nice good read
