The Other People opening lines: She sleeps. A pale girl in a white room. Machines surround her.
Gabe makes one wrong choice in his life that will have repercussions for him for the rest of his life. He chooses to get behind the wheel of the car, and then stays for the aftermath. He thinks that Isabella’s mother has the upper hand when it comes to revenge. But it is clear he doesn’t really understand the meaning of the word. Now his wife is dead and he is chasing a car. The one he last saw his daughter Izzy, in.

WOW! C.J. Tudor is an author that to me holds an exciting future. I found this book to be well written with a storyline that is totally believable. Somewhere out there Strangers On A Train might really exists. A real page turner in my opinion.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Random House South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
