Your husband goes out to buy a newspaper. He never comes back.
Months later, an unexpected phone call puts you and your daughter in unimaginable danger. Even if he were still alive, your husband can’t save you now. He told you way too many lies for that…
When it comes to good, tautly plotted and beautifully written psychological thrillers Samantha Hayes is my go to writer – she has a clever and twisted mind (in the best way possible) a sharp and intuitive eye towards character building and a tendency to have me reading throughout the night.
In Too Deep did that again. Not that I was expecting anything less but there you go. If you like this kind of novel then you too will be up all night…
A family hit by tragedy then whilst trying to put themselves back together, one goes missing. You follow one thread of one possible clue and end up In Too Deep. Thats the non spoiler plot in a nutshell. But oh boy is there so much more to it than that. From the brilliantly emotive and intriguing opening salvo, the author builds the tension, slowly slowly until BAM you are heading down the other side of the rollercoaster, wind whipping through your hair screaming at the top of your lungs. Metaphorically speaking of course…
In Too Deep will lead you down several garden paths until you finally find the gate – in that way it is classic storytelling within this genre The twists, turns and reveal moments are placed to perfection, you think you know one thing then find its another, believe you understand a character then realise you did not know them at all. I like the depth that Samantha Hayes brings to all the varying strands of this story (and her others for that matter) then always always manages to throw an unexpected and thought provoking finale onto things.
Overall a really great read. A lot of fun for the mystery solvers amongst us, it will test your mettle and as ever a proper page turner.
