What would you have done? Thriller
My rating: 4 out of 5
Mackenzie witnesses a car crash and pulls a woman free. This starts a thrilling chain of events where revenge and freedom become entwined.
Mackenzie is running a women’s refuge, where the fear of violence from men, whether past or present, is always there. She is providing a place of healing, not only for the women, but also for herself. Meanwhile she is falling for DI Andrew Geddes, but could her secrets destroy their chance of happiness?
As with all Owen Mullen books, this thriller has plenty of action and interesting characters. This novel about making a difference in other people’s lives; indeed there are times when the reader may question what they would have done in similar circumstances.
This is the 2nd book in the Mackenzie Darroch series, the first is In Harm’s Way. Both can be read as “stand alone” books.
4*s from me for this thriller, as I found the dark realism of domestic abuse hard to read about. Domestic noir is not a preferred genre for me; if it was this would definitely have merited 5*s.
This is a Boldwood Books revised and re-edited version of the previous edition.
