Lucy gets the same bus every day.
She hopes to get a seat to herself, tries to avoid eye contact, and, if she’s really lucky, reads a chapter of her book.
But it’s a Friday – and the bus is always crammed at the end of the week. Personal space doesn’t exist. She keeps her elbows close and clings to a pole at every juddering stop.
When she gets off, something feels different.
An envelope stuffed with thousands of pounds is in her bag.
Is it the answer to her prayers, or the beginning of a nightmare?
Because, in the end, everything has a price.
A compulsive read that will have you absolutely hooked and reading late into the night.
I love this author’s books so I was delighted to see that he had a new book out, this one, A Face in the Crowd!!
I really enjoyed this plot and whilst I did guess a major part of it around a third of the way through ,so it wasn’t as enjoyable as one that keeps me guessing right to the end, there were still a few twists and it still held my attention right to the end and the pace for the book was spot on to build just the right amount of suspense.
I really enjoyed the main character in the book, Lucy and I really felt for her as the book progressed, she was a genuine character for me and I think sadly it is common now for a lot of people to be in similar positions as she finds herself at the outset of the book, I warmed to her straight away and was rooting for her throughout and I loved the addition of Billy!
Four stars from me for this one, I really enjoyed it, another well written book by Kerry Wilkinson – highly recommended!!
