My Review

Brilliant! Simply brilliant! I knew this was a crime thriller with some suspense elements, but what I wasn’t prepared for was how well interwoven the mystery would be throughout the plot, and how intriguing.

At first, it seemed to be about just a routine suicide but with a recording and the discovery of files and notes pointing to some other factor which led to Jack taking such a drastic way out, Detective Alex decides to investigage and what she uncovers will impact even her own life.

The writing is superb and the way the mystery slowly unwinds is meticulously done. THe main character is well developed, likeable, relatable nd interesting and I can’t wait to read the rest of her adventures.

The pacing is good and the plot itself is immersive and gripping. I was so caught up even though I had figured some of out earlier, but the final twist took me by complete surprise, and that is always a good thing.

The idea of the story, while not original has its own unique spin ane it was well integrated in the storyline.

Overall, a compelling mystery with an unexpected twist, and a well-paced plot which will keep you turning pages until the very last word has been read.
