The synopsis is what hooked me. You know I love me a good thriller!

I appreciated the authors note in the beginning in regards to proper pronunciation of common Irish names. The book is a bit slow to start. Everything is being set up and you’re getting background information. I started having my suspicions as things slowly started to come together. I also wasn’t exactly sold on the characters at first but as the story progressed, I came around. None of them are very likable but yet it worked for the story. Then the story takes off and holy hell you’re in for a ride! There are some twists and turns I didn’t see coming. I was guessing till the very end. Then sat there and was like whoa. Yeah, so good.

This is the first book I’ve read from this author and I plan on checking out other works by her. I truly enjoyed this book. If you’re a fan of thriller, I highly recommend checking this book out. I give this 4 stars. 

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion*
