Well worth the wait.
OMG How excited was I to receive an early copy of this book. I couldn't wait to get stuck in. It seemed like foreverago since I read Dreada Say Mitchell books.
Although this book is different from her other books, right from the first page I loved this book. It didn't take me long to get sucked right into the story.
We start off this book with a Murder. What do you do if you wake up in a sleezy hotel room, and the woman you went there with is now dead in the bathroom, brutally murdered, you have a gun shot wound to your head, and you have no bloody idea what the hell happened.
Well you go searching for answers, answers that might just get you into trouble, or at best just killed. No big deal, as long as you get the truth.
Well that is exactly what happened to Mac. I really liked him, although he was at times hard to figure out, and a little crazy. Well more than a little, he was kind of crazier than a big bag of crazy things. But likable. I found myself many times talking to the characters in the book, now i'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing. lol. But to me it means that the author has managed to get you sucked in and involved in what is going on. I sooo needed to know Who-What-Why.? all the way through I suspected everyone of not being what they say they are, I become very suspicious of everyone, and didn't know who could and couldn't be trusted.
An amazing book, well worth reading. This book is certainly going to be in my top 10 read of 2014. Just Brilliant.
I wanted to sit and read this in one sitting, but I found I was actually really good (bloody hard to do) but I took my time and just read a few chapters at a time.
I really liked the short chapters in this book, as it's easy to *read just one more chapter*.
'Breathless from the first word, thrilling to the last.' Lee Child
'Wonderful vivid writing and a truly original voice.' Peter James
Two murders. Two different crime scenes. One killer?
Mac wakes in an smashed-up hotel room with no recollection of what has happened. With his lover's corpse in the bathroom and the evidence suggesting that he killed her, Mac is on a mission to uncover the truth and find the real killer.
But he's in a race against time with less than a day to unravel the mystery. Still reeling from a personal tragedy Mac isn't afraid of pain. Hot on his heels is tenacious Detective Inspector Rio Wray. Double-crossed and in the line of fire, Mac has to swim through a sea of lies to get to the truth.
But only Mac knows he's been living a double life. Can he be sure he doesn't have the blood of a dead woman on his hands?
If you have not read any of her other books, I suggest you take a look at them, you won't be disappointed.
