There's a reason Cari Hunter is my all-time favorite author (any time someone asks, she's at the very top of my top 10 list). The book pulls you in right away. There's never a dull moment, and you really fall in love with the characters. And there's a certain "feeling" you get. A feeling that puts you right into the book alongside the characters and makes you feel a bit empty when it ends. Hunter makes her characters feel like close friends.
All in all, I have to say that reading on my Kindle was a positive experience and will probably improve my audio experience when the audible version is ready (and yes, I'll be re-reading it on audio right away, as soon as it's available later this month). Hunter uses a lot of very non-American words and having the book on Kindle allowed me to look them up.
Like Cari Hunter's other books, this will be one I'll undoubtedly re-read multiple times, if only for that certain "feeling."
Summary: the main character wakes up after a horrible car accident with severe memory loss. She knows rather quickly that things are more than they appear and she's caught up in some type of unsavory business. But due to the car accident--she doesn't know if she's a good guy or a bad guy. A local detective gets involved and all sorts of things happen (dead bodies, house ransacking, missing files etc....)
Really enjoyed this. Suspenseful, well-written. Would recommend.
DS Bronwen Pryce is all cop when she first encounters the injured and confused Rebecca.. She is drawn so well, so cool and professional that when circumstances change and she becomes an ally to Rebecca I wasn’t sure this softer, gentler Bronwen was trustworthy. When I reread the opening scenes I was able to pick up on the compassion and concern expressed by Pryce which I seemed to gloss over on the first read worried as I was with Rebecca’s welfare.
This is a difficult book to review without giving away spoilers. I will say Alias lives up to the high standard fans of Ms Hunter’s work have come to expect when she puts pen to paper. Settings are vivid and the characters who fill the scenes easy to imagine. Using a narrator with memory loss aids in ramping up the tension. The reader is as lost as the MC’s and can only speculate on who to trust and how much danger they face. I love how she includes snippets of memories which add clarity but more often confusion for our injured heroine.
Like other readers I continue to mourn the fictional passing of the Dark Peak series Megan and Sanne. It was hard not to look for similar bonds but this is a standalone crime thriller and these women are too busy unravelling the levels of deceit and corruption to spend a lot of time snogging. (Did I get that right?) It took nothing away from another engrossing read.
