Gripping Police Procedural
on 28 June 2013
Never having previously read Simon Wood, I was pleased to pick up this book. I am so glad I did. This book is not an on the edge of your seat roller coaster ride but is, nevertheless, a book which grabs you and pulls you in. Terry Sheffield has arrived in America to start his life with his new bride. However, she does not arrive to meet him. The book is essentially his quest to find her, with a lot of surprising twists and turns along the way. I loved the characters in this book. Terry is well written and very much a real person. His new friend Oscar is a larger than life character and you couldn't help but love him. He provides some spots of humour. The ending is surprising and at no time did I guess it. This is a well written thriller, which is well paced and exciting. I would highly recommend it.
