You have six seconds to read this message… The body of a 15-year-old is found hours after she sends a desperate message to her friends. It looks like suicide, until a second girl disappears. This time, the message is sent directly to the Metropolitan Police – and an officer’s younger sister is missing. DS Nasreen Cudmore and journalist Freddie Venton will stop at nothing to find her. But whoever’s behind the notes is playing a deadly game of hide and seek – and the clock is ticking. You have 24 hours to save the girl’s life. Make them count.
A second absolutely fantastic, nail-biting, roller-coaster of a thriller from Angela Clarke. The plot – 24 hours to save a kidnapped girl – perfectly lends itself to another fast-paced, unputdownable story.
This time round the book focuses slightly more on Nasreen than Freddie, but both characters are given plenty of opportunity to shine. It’s well-plotted and totally full of menace and tension.
It’s at times uncomfortable, disturbing and difficult to read, but it’s also clever, witty and gripping; it makes you think and it kept me glued to the page. Thank you to NetGalley, HarperCollins UK, Avon and Angela Clarke for the ARC of Watch Me.
