Unputdownable! A chilling and tense thriller!
There has been a lot of hype about this book and often this worries me as I wonder if it will then live up to my expectations when I read it. I am very pleased to say this one did! This is a fast-paced, action-packed, nail-biting read that had me on the edge of my seat throughout!
Anna is juggling being a single mum whilst holding down a career, this is hard for most, but Anna is a heart surgeon, so it isn’t like she works an average 9-5 kind of job. Thank goodness she has a lovely neighbour, Paula, who takes care of her son Zack for her when she’s working. After a stressful shift at the hospital, she heads home, what greets her when she gets there is not at all what she was expecting! Who are these men in her house and where are Zack and Paula?
Anna is due to operate on a very high-profile person – MP Ahmed Shabir. It has all been kept top secret, but there must have been a leak, as these men in Anna’s home have come to give her an ultimatum. She is to kill Ahmed Shabir on the operating table, or she will never see her son alive again!
What a dilemma Anna finds herself in, as a surgeon she has taken the Hippocratic Oath to abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm, but she can’t let her son die!
We follow her on her quest to save her son and we soon realise that murdering an innocent man is the easy bit, it’s getting away with it and the challenges she faces after that are the real hard tasks.
This is an incredibly well-written book that played out in my mind like a movie. With unexpected twists and turns, I thoroughly enjoyed the roller coaster ride this story took me on. I loved both Anna and Margot who were very well-developed characters with personality traits reflective of their backstories, especially Margot. There was never a dull moment in this book and the jam-packed storyline held my attention from start to finish.
So, what would you do in Anna’s situation? Murder someone or never see your child again? As a mother myself the answer is a no brainer. Thank heavens this is just fiction!
So, if you’re looking for a book that will raise your heart rate, have you clenching your jaw and make you hold your breath for long periods of time then this is the book for you! Just don’t do yourself any harm!
