This is a well written and fast paced book that kept me hooked right till the very end. If I didn’t have to sleep is the only way I would have finished this book faster. This book is fill out twist and turns that you wouldn’t expect to be coming, I found these twist and turn when I thought the book seemed over about a quarter of the way in but then I turned the page and a twist brought the book back to life. I believe this shows the talent of a great author.
The characters are well written and excellent description is used throughout. Peggy is a very strong character, whereas Roger seems to be a weaker character. However throughout the novel Roger seems to develop confidence and becomes a strong independent character.
I would recommend this novel to anyone that love a great suspense novel. This books has so many twist and turns that you will have a surprise almost every time you turn a page.
