Imagine you are having lunch at an exclusive restaurant, filled with Hollywood’s hottest stars.
And a masked gunman walks in and takes everyone hostage.
You must bargain for your life against a twisted individual who knows everything about you.
He also has a bomb set to detonate if his heart rate changes.
If he dies. You die.
You have four hours to stay alive.
What would you do?
A heart-stopping thriller with plenty of twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat, for fans of Peter Swanson, Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay.
This book actually left me thinking of this scenario way long after I'd finished reading it.
It may not have helped my cause being sat in a local restaurant waiting for my hubby to arrive, I sat reading this on my kindle. (not while eating, just while waiting for hubz) But then all through lunch I kept looking at the door weighing everyone up as they come in.
Out lunching in a restaurant fit for the Hollywood fabulous. Business, Pleasure the guy that walks in with a bomb strapped to his chest really couldn't give two hoots why you are there. The fact is you are there, and for him, it's now time to play a game. A game of life.
What would you do to stay alive. Well this is what some of Hollywood's Elite are to figure out.
Part way through this book I was thinking it might go around the 4/5 star read for me, as I was enjoying it. But the more I got into the book, the more I enjoyed it and by the time I was getting near the end, I knew it would be wrong to give it anything less that a 5 star rating.
So many questions racing around your head while reading, as I say not only What would you do? But Why is this bomber doing it, what can motivate someone into going into a restaurant and holding innocent people hostage.
It really does get your heart racing, and maybe your blood pressure to. Make sure you have some nails to bite while reading this.
A book I really would recommend without hesitation.
A super big thank you to the publishers for an ARC of this book.
It's all about choices. Choose to live, Choose to die. it's your choice, or is it?
Dare I admit this is the first book I've read by this author, I know James Carol is writing here as J.S. Carol, but I haven't read any James Carol books previously. I'm sure that is now about to change as believe it or not when investigating this, I discovered that I have 3 of James books on my Kindle which I purchased in 2014 to 2015. How bad is that, having 3 books of a series I have purchased that I have not yet read.
