Land of the living...

I've been busy reading the last week or so and thought it time for another book review. I'm working my way through a pile of books picked up at my local op shop. Todays selection is a novel called "Land of the living" by Nicci French.

I've read several of her books and enjoyed them all. Nicci French has the knack of writing in a style that keeps you on the edge of your seat right to the very end of the story. You WANT to know what is going to happen next. In this book the central character Abbie wakes in a dark place. She is hooded and bound and has no memory of where she is or how she got there. Her captor feeds her and talks to her and promises to keep her alive....for now! He tells her he will kill her all the others.

We follow Abbie's efforts to keep herself alive and desperately trying to remember her life before the nightmare she now finds herself in.
I can't tell you much m ore about the plot without spoiling it for you but there are enough red herrings and plot twists and turns in this book to keep you siting up well into the night!
A damn fine thriller with a surprise ending.
wishing you sunshine in your shadows
