(Very well paced and a few chapters are the "can't put this book down" variety. Probably a 2-day read for most people.)
The story starts with Cat narrowly avoiding a custodial prison sentence for drug offences, instead being forced to move to a new area, get a tedious job she hates, and grapple with the sort of gritty day-to-day realities she has never had to face before.
However, at work she meets the enigmatic K, a shaven headed man of mystery, who has tattoos and an attitude, but who ultimately turns out to be fiercely intelligent, resourceful and thoroughly decent.
Suddenly Cat realises that her present is inextricably linked with her past. It transpires that the death of her mega-rich rock star parents, years ago, may be much more complicated than she has always supposed, and that dark forces may have had a hand in their fates. The successful rock duo died when their car plunged into the Thames, years ago. But were they stoned and insensible, as she’s always been told?
The story moves at a cracking pace, and Cat quickly finds out who she can trust and who she can’t, and sets out on a journey into the unknown, to try to put right the wrongs of the past, not realising that her life is in danger.
Saying more might spoil the story, but if you like ‘woman in a mess’ mysteries with lots of thrills, twists and romance, this is one for you. I read it quickly, because once I started I simply had to know what happens.
The book introduces us to Cat Hope who has been a spoiled, rich brat, her parents having been a famous rock star couple. However, when they are tragically killed when Cat is a kid and this is when she begins to go off the rails. Raised by her legal guardian and parents business partner, Cat as an adult is continuing with her out of control lifestyle and another court appearance proves to be one too many and Cat is sentenced to the strangest type of rehab............move away, assume a new identity, help others less fortunate and get a job! Not being used to living in the 'real world' Cat finds herself lonely and a little bit poorer than what she is used to. Even her legal guardian can't save her as even he doesn't know where she is! Its not long before Cat wishes she'd been given a prison sentence instead!
Cat's new life soon has her questioning all that was familiar to her and the reason behind her parent's deaths. There is so much she doesn't know about her past. Then, she meets computer genius and hacker Kay in her new job and with a dubious past of his own, Kay and Cat are drawn together to find answers into the secrets that surround their past lives. Secrets that now threaten their very future!
This book has it all. Romance, suspense, intrigue and thrills! Nicky well has packaged up everything that readers of all genres will love in this book. Lots of unexpected things in the book that made me sit with my mouth open, trying to digest what I'd just read! The book is nicely paced and leads us into a false sense of security because by the end you will be holding on by the seat of your pants! Lots of surprises and a roller coaster ride! Bravo Nicky Wells! Another fantastic book to have book lovers locking themselves away to devour this book. I fell in love with Kay a little bit too! Ooops! Highly recommended.
