Blog Tour: To Kill a Stranger by Simon Kernick
Released: 26th November 2020
To save a life, could you take another?
How far would you go for the one you love?
And how well do you really know them?
They took your fiancé.
They framed you for murder. You have one chance to save her.
To clear your name.
You must kill someone for them. They give you the time. The location. The target.
You have less than 24 hours.
You must make an impossible choice.
I’ll admit that while I was intrigued by this novel when the review request came through, it was my partner that urged me to reply. I do enjoy thrillers, but something about this blurb really did demand to be read.
I’m so glad I decided to become part of the blog tour. The author really does take you on a completely engrossing rollercoaster ride.
Literally every chapter has a cliffhanger, meaning that it’s a book you take with you around the house when your cooking, having lunch, making a drink, because you simply need to know what’s going to happen next.
Most of us at the moment are looking to books, films, fiction of any kind to escape from the blurry mess that is 2020 and I can promise you that if you take a chance on this novel, you will be immersed in a dramatic storyline that you won’t want to put down.
I’m a huge fan of multiple perspectives in a novel, as it gives you such a rounded view of what’s going on and can help you to piece things together. It was a really interesting and intriguing tool used in this story, and made me turn the pages even faster.
I feel so grateful to have been able to read this book, and feel I have learnt from this as an author. How to capture a reader and surprise them at every turn, and for that during this weird time I am grateful to be learning and reading with vigour.
Thanks so much to the publisher for sending me a copy of this for honest review and to Tracy at Compulsive Readers for inviting me to be part of the tour.
