A thrilling read
We join detective Rachel Lewis as she takes on the case of the deaths of a select few who had defied the odds and survived an earlier plane crash. Has there luck just finally run out and this is a massive coincidence, or is it something more sinister? As she searches for the truth will she uncover what Clodagh did before the crash and does that hold the key to what is happening now?
I absolutely love Sheila Bugler’s work and The Lucky Eight is another book of hers to add to my favourites. This is a thrilling tale that immediately had me hooked and hanging off every word. Told mainly from the perspectives between Detective Rachel Lewis and survivor Clodagh Kinsella, the story is fast paced, actioned packed and has plenty of twists and turns that left my head spinning!
The Lucky Eight is a gripping read that will have you flicking the pages long into the night. I was held captive, unable to escape until I learned the truth. A perfectly written story, with a great diverse cast of characters that had me holding the Kindle until my knuckles turned white, I really enjoyed this book, which is a must read for fans of the genre.
