Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, this is one of the best thrillers I’ve ever read and I’ve still barely got my breath back! It grabbed me from the first few paragraphs and I was absolutely on the edge of my seat throughout. It was so captivating and well-written; the characters and the tension leaped off the page – there were some moments when I felt genuinely frightened and jumped at any loud noise around me!
At times the book reminded me of parts of Die Hard, A Snowball in Hell (Christopher Brookmyre) and Ragdoll (Daniel Cole) – all of which are a compliment, but this is definitely its own story. It is original, inventive, clever, disturbing, very atmospheric and full of twists and the conclusion is a revelation. I was racing towards the finish but I didn’t want it to end! I thought it was amazing. Thank you so much to Bookouture and NetGalley (and obviously James Carol) for the ARC of The Killing Game.
