Thrillers have to be up there are one of my favourite kinds of books and this book did not disappoint. From the very first page I found myself hooked.

I found the book to be fast paced however in the middle of the book I did find that the pace of the book did slow down but it soon picked back up again.

All the characters were brought to life through the authors vivid descriptions and all the characters had a purpose within the novel.

I was worried that I was not going to understand the medical condition that Jane had and then not be able to get into the book. However Michael Cordy described the condition so simply that I was able to fully understand the condition and learn something new as well.

I loved how the book ended it has left the characters open to returning in another book and if a sequel is down I will be one of the first in the queue to get my hands on a copy.

Overall a very well thought out and original novel, I highly recommend it to everyone.

A copy of this book was received from Transworld publishers and all opinions expressed are my own through reading it.
