Impressive structure and writing but my failure to connect with the main characters meant this “thriller” fell flat. 3/5 stars.
The blurb: “Here today. Dead tomorrow?
My best friend, Emily, is dead – killed last night in a hotel fire.
But it was meant to be me.
Now I have 24 hours to find my daughter.
Before he finds out I’m still alive.
24 Hours is a fast-paced, intelligent psychological thriller that will leave you breathless.”
I am giving 24 Hours three out of five stars for the quality of the writing and structure. Writing a book which switches between the past and present every chapter is no mean feat. Even more impressive is producing one which does all this time shifting without disorientating or confusing the reader.
The plot was fine and the author includes various twists and turns to keep the reader guessing as to who the real villain/s of the piece is/are.
