6.27am. The sky is blue. The air is warm with a summer breeze. And in the last 27 minutes, seven people have been murdered.
In a series of coordinated attacks, seven men and women across London have been targeted. For journalist Famie Madden, the horror unfolds as she arrives for the morning shift.
The victims have one thing in common: they made up the investigations team at the news wire service where Famie works. The thought in everyone’s minds, what were they working on that could prompt such brutal devastation? And as Famie starts to receive mysterious messages, she has to find out whether she is being warned of the next attack, or being told that she will be the next victim…
In this gripping, fast-paced thriller that could have been ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, Simon Mayo has written an electrifying novel about the dangerous world we live in.

My Review

Wow what a page turner! I really did not want to put this book down, and read it in less than 24 hours!

I’ve literally just finished this and want to tell everyone to pre-order this as it isn’t published until June. I reckon it’s going to be a huge hit over the summer and I’d love to see it made into a film or TV series.

I loved the characters, especially Famie the main character. She was great, a strong female main character, but not ridiculously bad ass, something I’ve never been able to relate to. I liked that she was normal, had hopes and fears, but wasn’t frightened of taking risks or speaking her mind to those in authority.

I also really liked Famie’s colleagues Sam, Tommi and Sophie and of course her daughter Charlie.

I absolutely loved the pace of this book, totally unrelenting, making me flip those pages quickly, sometimes even having to speed read because I needed to find out what was going to happen next. Brilliant!

There were some excellent twists, especially the one near the end that I really wasn’t expecting, with me saying out loud “no way!” I’m so glad I was in my kitchen and not in a coffee shop! πŸ˜€

What more can I say, except if you love thrillers you’ve got to read this one!

Thanks so much to NetGalley, Random House UK, Transworld Publishers, Doubleday for my digital ARC.
