Can Bailey outwit her hunter?
My rating: 3 out of 5
Detective Constable Bailey Morgan is being hunted, but can she become the hunter in this psychological thriller?
Bailey is soon to give crucial evidence in the trial of a drug smuggler, but will she survive long enough to give it? The days are counting down, and Bailey has gone into hiding whilst she tries to find out who is trying to kill her. The story is told from the point of view of the two main characters, Bailey and the professional killer out to get her, as they try to outwit each other – with peripheral characters adding to the action.
There are plenty of heart racing moments, and I enjoyed the psychology both of the main characters, and how to avoid a killer (some of which sent me to Google – always a good sign). The opening pages are somewhat brutal, but this does not carry on through the book. The tension grows to a really exciting last few chapters!
This thriller is well written, and flows well. However I didn’t get into the characters and story as much as I did with Caro Savage’s previous thriller Villain, and therefore though I enjoyed the book, I didn’t love it, mainly because I was comparing it with Villain. This is the 3rd book featuring Bailey Morgan – though the two that I have read so far can be read as stand alone.
