"A pacy gripping thriller that kept me hanging in there" MJPA, Amazon "Light, pacy contemporary thriller from an assured storyteller...a mix of light entertainment, suspense and wry insight into modern society" Debbie Young, Amazon 1,000 Top Reviewer " If you're into shady dealings and corporate cunning, seasoned with a subplot involving a cure for cancer, this pacy, stylish thriller should be your next read." CA Mathews, Amazon "Another highlight is the dramatic conclusion in the secret tunnels beneath Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, which makes for an extremely tense and claustrophobic finale."

I quite liked Kat who with all of her flaws just wanted to do the right thing but got herself in too deep. She is quite naïve in some respects, she wanted to please someone who just wanted to earn money out of her.
Amy has a job and is just about getting by living in the tiniest apartment with Kat, but she soon finds out that Kat has stolen her identity for a sham marriage. I really feel for Amy as she is trying to make ends meet and Kat is constantly living the high life and spend hundreds, if not thousands of pounds on outfits she can't really afford.
Amy soon gets into the thick of the gangster life trying to search for Kat when she goes missing. Amy doesn't know that Kat has run away but genuinely thinks she's missing. All she wants to do is clear her name and get her life back.
The characters were quite addictive and I found myself turning the pages into the early hours of the morning. A. A. Abbott is a new author for me and I'm definitely going to add the next book to my TBR. I'm invested in the characters and I'm routing for Amy and Kat's brother. Amy deserves something good out of all this.
It was well written and I thoroughly enjoyed the pace of it as well as the twists and turns. Definitely worth a read!
It’s gritty, dark and dips into the dark underbelly of the world around us. You never know who could be standing right beside you, do you?
Amy Satterthwaite’s flatmate has vanished. Finding out that Kat stole her identity for some sham marriage scam is the least of her worries when certain unsavoury characters come knocking at their door looking for Amy’s erstwhile flatmate.
These are not the type of people you want to double cross *shakes head* With not just Kat’s life being threatened, it’s paramount that Amy tracks her down asap. Only, where to begin?
Enlisting the help of one of Kat’s many admirers, Ross Pritchard (although I would rather have stuck pins in my eyes), the two set off to track down the missing Kat. Can they warn/get to her in time?
Who is the mysterious Kat? The game is afoot as they say.
Told via multiple POVs this story had me gripped till the very end where I was still left with more questions than answers. Curse you, author *raises fists* lol!
However, when you take a moment and think about it like a rational person (which despite popular opinion I can be on occasion *smirks*), this is exactly what you want from the first book in a series.
Don’t go looking at me like that - I’m getting to the reason behind my rating. Sheesh! All in good time, people, all in good time.
*sucks in breath*
Okay, so beside the more questions than answers at the end thing, Ididntreallylikeanyofthecharacters *blows out breath* They just weren’t very likeable, but part of me thinks that was part of their charm *shrugs*
Honestly, I can’t repeat what I thought of Ross in polite society and the jury is still out on Amy and Kat. Hmm, okay, I was intrigued by Erik so I hope we hear more about him.
But, above all, I was compelled to keep turning the pages to find out what happened. In other words, I’m hooked.
Onwards to Book 2 - who’s coming with?
I enjoyed every page of this, Although I must say that the multiple points of view made me nervous. Initially I was concerned that I wouldn’t follow what was happening, less an issue in longer books, but in one of this length I was worried it would feel a bit rushed and without substance.
Instead, I found that it kept me on my toes, made me smile, and surprised me multiple times. The various viewpoints made it intriguing, add in the unique plot line that to be honest, caught me off guard a bit, and this was certainly worth picking up.
If I’m honest. I still haven’t decided if I like Kat or not. It’s a love/hate situation I think, her Character is certainly intriguing, but she’s not exactly likeable.
Don’t let the length of this thriller put you off! There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you entertained, and the writing style flows wonderfully.
The worry with a shorter book is often that it will fall a bit flat, have loose ends of a hole in the plot. A character who makes no sense, or a rushed ending. There are very few authors who can craft a shorter book with just as much punch as a longer, keep you entertained the whole way, and leave you feeling satisfied overall.
I’m definitely looking forwards to the next in the series!
The story is about two flat mates, Kat and Amy. When Kat goes missing Amy goes on the trail to look for her. There are also various other characters introduced throughout the book, which does get a bit confusing. However, as the book progresses we see how all these characters interlink.
The overall story line was good. However, I have to admit it took me a while to get into it because of all the various characters. The author also reflects on the history of some of the characters. There wasn't really any separation from the history and present day, so that made a bit of the story unclear at times.
Overall, I enjoyed the plot, but do feel it could have been put across better.
