My review - What a book.
This was an amazing thriller. A page-turner, a book that has kept me gripped from the beginning to end. Obsessive and full of twists.
In this book it starts with a letter. Daniel hasn't had the best life. After meeting Victoria, they move in together. He decides he needs a hobby and finds a programme where you can be a pen pal with people in prison. He sends his letter off and is surprised when he get's response from a woman named Ruby. Daniel is trying to start a family with Victoria but, there is something about Ruby and Victoria seems cold. With each letter they send each other, things start to get intense. At first it's just normal letters but, as time goes on, feelings are thrown into the mixture as well as desire. When Ruby turns up to find him, he needs to decide what to do.
This is a book that you need to just jump into. It is a book that, when you start it you won't be able to stop. The letters and characters will keep you captivated throughout. A book that has an eerie feel to it and will send shivers down your spin.
This is one of the best thrillers I've read. A book that will get you thinking and gripped and you won't be able to put it down until you've finished.
