Keep your friends close. And your enemies closer.
Cara shouldn’t have survived the attack. But at the last moment, a stranger snatched her to safety.
In the hours that followed, she told her Good Samaritan secrets she’d never told a soul.
Not even her husband. Especially not her husband.
In the aftermath, Cara is home, healed and safe. Which is when the anonymous threats begin.
Someone knows things about her that they shouldn’t.
Cara’s Good Samaritan offers to help – to save her all over again.
That night, Cara made a friend for life. But what if she isn’t a friend at all?
This has a really gripping beginning, and had me hooked from the first page. Radio producer Cara is on her way home when she finds herself caught up in a terrorist attack and is pulled into the safety of a coffee shop by a stranger, Amy.
Frightened, in shock, and still a little drunk from her evening out, in the hours they are hiding, Cara finds herself confiding her darkest secrets to Amy.
This sets the ball in motion for a twisty thriller, told from both Amy and Cara’s points of view.
The writing is really strong, and each scene adds to the slightly surreal, claustrophobic nature of the story. It’s a clever tale, and really intriguing. I got so frustrated with Cara at times, for not being able to see what was under her nose – proof of a storyteller that knows how to keep her reader engaged!
It’s a good, solid, well written thriller, and I’d definitely read more by this author.
