I squealed a little when Bookouture announced that Tom Bale was going to be publishing his new book! It seems like sooooooo long since the last one! No sooner had they announced it than I was begging for a spot on the blog tour! So a huge thank you to the publishers and to the author for my review copy.
Before I share my thoughts, here’s what the official blurb says:
He sees his wife’s eyes watching him in the rear-view mirror, the kids up on their knees to get a better look. That’s when he hears the scream…
You’re driving home from a family outing one afternoon, when a speeding car cuts you up, nearly causing you to crash. Like anyone would, you pull over to confront the driver.
But a glance into the backseat of the speeding car reveals a woman fighting to escape. She is terrified and she’s screaming for your help: these men have murdered her husband…
What would you do?
An addictive thriller with plenty of twists – fans of Harlan Coben, James Patterson and Robert Dugoni will be completely hooked.
Once again Tom Bale ramps up the pressure right from the outset presenting the reader with a scenario that makes them question what they would have done. Someone cuts you up in the car – what do you do? Flip them the finger or drive on or chase after them, one incident, two choices and you just know that the choice that this author makes is going to plunge you straight into a nightmare! I know that since reading this book, my mind is racing every time I’m driving along a country road and someone tries to cut me up!
I can’t say much about the plot for fear of spoilers but what Tom Bale has done once again is to provide a cast of characters who will prod and poke inside of your head making you question all that you believe to be true. Is your life dull and routine? Do you wish for a little more excitement? Is your relationship a little too safe? Are you considering a future without your partner? Do you laugh at the eccentricities of those around you? Just what makes a bad guy? After reading this then you are going to be very careful what you wish for!
Adam and Katy find themselves caught up in a nightmare that there seems to be no escape from. Like most of Tom Bales books, you need to take the situation and magnify the consequences, be prepared to suspend your belief in order to lose yourself in a tense and taut psychological thriller that will fry your brain as you try to work our what you would do. A cast of stageworthy bad guys turn the screws so tight the reader is left wondering if it will be impossible for them to escape their fate. An ordinary family placed into an extraordinary situation, it will have your heart racing and your jaw dropping!
