The pacing in this book is fairly fast and keeps the reader engaged. I liked that I was not given too much information. This book serves as a cautionary tale against road rage. Sometimes its best to keep going and not engage. In this book, the characters are pretty much in the dark and trying to figure out how one incident has drastically changed their lives. I didn't know what was going on either and I learned things at the same time the characters in the book did.
This book would make for a great plane book. It is pure escapism reading. It was entertaining and kept my interest throughout. This isn't a book where the reader really needs to try and figure things out - just read along and enjoy.
Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own.
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity!
A family is driving along the road after enjoying a great day together. Adam, his wife, Katy and their two kids are tired and on the way home when a car almost hits them. The husband, Adam, gets angry and follows the car to confront the driver. But all hell breaks lose when they stop - the husband hears a cry for help from the car from a woman in the back seat. Adam tries to make a quick getaway, but the men in the car overtake them and kidnap the family.
They are taken to a farmhouse where they are put in the basement with the woman in the car. How can this happen - they have just enjoyed a wonderful day, they were on their way home, and now they sit in a dark basement - prisoners.
Adam and Katy soon find out that the woman in the car, Carole, was taken from her home. Her husband was killed by these men. She claims to not know why she was taken, but soon they all discover that these men are dangerous. Adam and Katy's young children are frightened and cannot understand what is going on. While trying to make things somewhat normal for them, it is impossible to fathom that they are in this situation.
Adam and Katy meet with their captors - four men and an older woman who tell them they must go along with them because they have a plan that involves Carole and a ransome. They are told they will be released in a day or two, but Adam and Katy know that they have seen their faces.
Can they escape? Will they be released? Can they get out of this nightmare?
This is a rollercoaster ride and a good one. An ordinary family on an ordinary day wind up in a nightmare -= I loved this book.
Good writing and solid plot - Recommend.
Thank you #netgalley and #bookouture for the eARC.
This is the nail biting opening to One Dark Night, which proceeds to pelt along at full throttle. My heart was in my mouth as Adam, Katy and young children Freya and Dylan become embroiled in a complex tale of kidnapping, backstabbing and murder.
What I liked about this book – aside from the tension maintained throughout – was the juxtaposition of Mr and Mrs Average against a backdrop of crime at both low and high level. There is also a thread hinting at marital disharmony which plays out more fully towards the end. It took me just two days to read, and I will certainly check out more of the author's work. My thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for providing me with an advance copy. All opinions are my own.
