Amanda is a hardworking single mum, completely focused on her job and her daughter, Louise. She’s been saving for years and now, finally, she can afford to give up work and chase her dream.
But then, on her commute home from London to Brighton, she meets a charming stranger - who seems to know everything about her.
He delivers an ultimatum . She needs to give him the code for the safe where she keeps her savings before the train reaches Brighton - or she’ll never see Louise again.
Convinced that the threat is real, Amanda is stunned, horrified. She knows she should give him the code, but she can’t. Because she also knows there is a terrible secret in that safe which will destroy her life and Louise’s too…

Overall great idea for a plot but needed a bit more thought in execution
The execution of the storyline is somewhat repetitive and gets tedious. Considering the whole series of events occur in a few hours I suppose the author did well to get a book’s worth from the idea.
The lead up to the finale is the most humorous; a bit like a ‘ who will be bumped off next’.
Can’t say I would recommend this book. It’s too much on the light side to be taken seriously but it is a quick read so will fill in a few hours when there’s nowt else on offer.
Other reviwers have pointed out the conversation between the villain and the female passenger on a crowded train. Earwigging, anyone?
And, quite frankly, I find that the plan hatched to get the money a bit far fetched. Would anyone really go to such lengths to get their hands on - what is really- a paltry sum for all their trouble?!
Add to the mix a greedy irritating teenager who thinks her mother should give her the money to go travelling. I felt like shouting "Get off your lazy arse and go earn it!".
