Blog Tour: To Kill a Stranger – Simon Kernick*

WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO SAVE YOUR LOVED ONE?
AND DO YOU KNOW WHO SHE REALLY IS?
They took your fiancée.
They framed you for murder.You’re given one chance to save her. To clear your name.
You must kill someone for them.They give you the time and place.
The weapon. The target.
You have less than 24 hours.
You only know that no-one can be trusted…and nothing is what it seems.

My thoughts:

The premise of this was very clever and the way it was laid out, from the perspectives of three suspects and the detective investigating it was really clever, as they take it in turns to tell you what happened.

It all seems like a really bad dream when Nick wakes up to find his pregnant fiancée gone and a dead body in her place, and it gets increasingly worse from there.

There’s a lot of action for Nick, not so much for Kate, locked up by her kidnapper, but the back and forth of the interviews keeps the tension up and as the body count rises you can’t help but think “what on earth could happen next?”

The ending was a tiny bit less satisfying though and left me wanting more about what happens next between the two characters in the final scene – sequel please!
