(I received the Kindle version of this book, free of charge, from Netgalley in return for an honest independent review.)
My rating: 5 out of 5
A great thriller that starts gently, builds up and then stampedes to an exciting end.
Based in London Anna attends an Art Gallery launch party one evening, and meets an attractive man. However it appears he is acting oddly and Anna is warned to stay away from him - but she can't quite leave him alone. And that's only Chapter 1! As Anna says much later on "He seemed like a nice man", but is he who he seems to be? As the story progresses Anna has to decide should she listen to her long time friend from University or to the man of her dreams that she has just only just met. Naturally it's not as simple as that, as the author weaves her modern day thriller.
Clare Chase's writing style is fun, often humorous and makes for a great light, but engrossing, read.
The story is based in the art world, so gives brief glimpses into that; whilst mostly set in London there are occasional forays out into the Lake District.
I loved it, and would recommend this book to anyone looking for a gripping thriller.
