Surprises have been sprinkled all through the ebook — one thing I admire since so many thrillers save all of the twists and suprises for the top — and I completely devoured this one! (Value noting this ebook appears to be polarizing however I’m within the camp of people that actually loved it.) I discovered myself noticing the writer’s creativity on this story time and again and completely advocate it to anybody who loves suspenseful thrillers. It was full of pressure and questionable characters and was one of the crucial partaking books I’ve learn shortly.

The ebook begins when Jess arrives in Paris for the primary time to go to her brother Ben. She arrives at his condo and shortly notices one thing is off. He’s not there and never answering his calls.
