ABOUT THE BOOK (From Goodreads)
‘It’s me,’ says the voice on the other end of the line. It’s been thirteen years and I still recognise it. Thirteen years of nothing. Silence. Not even a birthday card. ‘It’s time for you to tell the truth. It’s life or death.’
Three hours later, car tyres screech and the air bags release. For a second, nothing happens. There’s only stunned silence and a ringing in my ears.
I peel open my eyes. What have I done? There’s a groan, and I gasp, terrified, at the sight of the man next to me. This is all his fault.
Fumbling with the door, I half step, half fall into the freezing cold air. I’m shivering all over as my knees land on the tarmac. ‘Help,’ I whisper into the dark, empty street.
Then there’s a flash of blue light. A siren. The police are coming. They will save me, and arrest him. They will see a dangerous man and an innocent victim – a loving mother with a son she cherishes.
They have to – because they can’t know the truth. They can’t discover what happened thirteen years ago and what happened tonight. All those years back, the lies nearly destroyed us. I won’t let that happen today.
It’s my word against his. And there’s no line I won’t cross to protect my family.
This book is amazing! A true 5-star book for sure. I was wowed right from the start and continued to be wowed throughout the book. Every chapter is action packed. Through the first half of the book, I held my breath. I couldn’t believe what was happening! There was a little more explanation beginning in the second half of the book, but then the action comes right back. There are so many twists that I had whiplash from all of them! And that ending! Wow, I didn’t see that coming at all! North skillfully and artfully wrote this so that the reader would be unable to figure out who was the perpetrator and who was the prey. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such talent within this thriller genre. This is 100% a MUST READ thriller novel for all those that even just like thrillers a little bit. You’d be missing out if you don’t read this book when it comes out.
