Margot Lewis is the agony aunt for The Cambridge Examiner. Her advice column, Dear Amy, gets all kinds of letters – but none like the one she’s just received:Dear Amy,I don’t know where I am. I’ve been kidnapped and am being held prisoner by a strange man. I’m afraid he’ll kill me.Please help me soon,Bethan AveryBethan Avery has been missing for nearly two decades. This is surely some cruel hoax. But, as more letters arrive, they contain information that was never made public. How is this happening? Answering this question will cost Margot everything…
I really enjoyed reading this psychological thriller. More so because I could not quite put my finger on ‘it’ right from the beginning, leaving me in suspense. It is a well written book and a great read that I can recommend.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Books South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
