  1. Tracey Harriman

    The story starts with a dead body with 3 apparent strangers standing over it. Ursula, Gareth and Alice.

    Very quickly we are taken back in time by a week. We learn the individual stories of our three strangers. Each has a unique character, and each has their own unique secrets. Over the course of the book find what makes Ursula, Gareth and Alice, tick. How past events have put them where they are today, their fears, their shames and their secrets. This information is drip fed to the reader, slowly allowing ideas to form as to where the story is going, who the dead man might be, and how they are involved. Of course, as soon as you think you know where the story is going we get a Taylor Twist.

    I found I was drawn into the stories of these individual characters much more than I was interested in the dead man. After the intial introduction of the deceased, I pretty much forgot about him. Understanding the motives behind the actions of Ursula, Gareth and Alice, why they behaved as they did and what had influenced the directions their lives took was what made the book hard to put down. There are other characters within the story, and again, it’s their interactions, their secrets and their behaviours that drive the story forward.

    It’s when our three main characters are united that the action really happens. What has brought them together? I’m not going to give any spoilers, but we know that, come the end, they are in the company of a dead man. And by this time, they know that, regardless of what may have happened before, they have to stick together now.

    I like Taylor’s writing a lot. I’ve read many of her thrillers and they are all compelling, yet easy reads. In this particular book, I most definitely found it was the characters that kept my interest more so than the plot.
