This is the first book by Jessica Webb which I started to read without big expectations, just interested in the book description. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by Ms. Webb’s original plot, proficient writing skills and knowledge on how to tell a story.
Even if the story can be categorised as science fiction, the author makes the events plausible and from the start the reader is taken into a plot full of twists which keeps you turning the pages.
The main characters are multifaceted and likable, their slow burn romance a good addition to the thriller. I really liked the way the book has been written from the Doctor’s point of view but in third person. In my opinion, this provides with a sense of mistery and aloofness to the cop character as we don’t know what’s on her mind and the reader only get clues of her feelings by her behaviour or what other characters say. The secondary characters are multilayered and well described which add interest and complement the plot nicely.
Overall, a very good thriller with a little bit of romance story. I’ll definitely read another book from this author. Highly recommended. 5+ stars.
I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
