Happy Friday guys!
It’s the end of another week, and another week closer to (Christmas!), although that is far too early to even mention the word!
Today on the blog, I’m taking part in T.A Cotteralls book tour for his debut book ‘What Alice Knew’.
A bit about the Author:
T. A. Cotterell read History of Art at Cambridge University. He worked in the City before resigning to become a freelance writer. He is now a writer and editor at the research house Redburn. He is married with three children and lives in Bristol.
I’m a big fan of Crime/Mystery books and this book is definitely under that category. What’s interesting about this book though is that we know the killer, but we don’t know how it’s happened.
Alice has a perfect life – a great job, happy kids, a wonderful husband. Until he goes missing one night; she receives a suspicious phone call; things don’t quite add up.
Alice needs to know what’s going on. But when she uncovers the truth she faces a brutal choice. And how can she be sure it is the truth?
Sometimes it’s better not to know.
We’re led to believe that Alice’s husband is a bad guy and he did a bad thing, simple enough?
What’s interesting though, is how Alice reacts. She and her husband decide to not go to the police and continue pretending that they know nothing about the murder. And yes, it was a murder.
They’re called in by the Police of course, and asked various questions, but we see things from Alice’s point of view and how she deals and copes with this new found information, information which could be hurtful to both her and her family.
It’s an understandable story, I mean what would you do if you’re loved one committed a crime? Even if it was accidental?
The ending though? The ending had me speechless, I couldn’t believe it! I was shocked, horrified even. I wanted to grab the character and scream at them, shaking them. But alas, that is not going to happen.
Fast paced and awe inspiring. This psychological thriller will have you waiting, with bated breath, for the thunderous ending.
Could not put it down, and I highly recommend it to all that love a good thriller, but be prepared for the surprise ending!
