I have no idea what it was that inspired me to get this book, probably a recommendation on Amazon, but there don’t seem to have been many people that have read / reviewed it!
A young actress regains consciousness in a basement in London. The room she is in is dirty and bare, apart from a mirror on the wall opposite her. She is tightly tied to the chair she is sitting on. A voice over a loudspeaker informs her that she has 15 minutes to live, and that she’d better make the most of it.
Troubled fourteen year old Kaylin lives on a London estate with her mum who is a struggling actress. Whilst round a friend’s house, Kaylin learns that there is a serial killer targetting actresses, and she begins to fear for her mum’s life.
I do love me a trashy stabby-thriller-catchy-killer type of book every now and then. And I have to admit, I really enjoyed this one.
It’s not the most descriptive book, it’s not a clear window into the souls of the characters, but there was something easy and compelling about it.
All the way through I kept convincing myself that I knew what was going to happen next. I knew how it was going to end, and then I’d change my mind, and know that it was going to end a different way.
I think that one of the reasons I actually look back on this story with a slight smile is because I really didn’t know how it was going to end. It kept me guessing right to the last few pages / clicks and was in fact more clever than I was expecting. Kudos to Mr Marcos for this, as there are not many thrillers that I haven’t been able to guess over recent years.
A good easy read, does what it says on the tin 🙂
