Don’t be fooled by the innocuous title and beautifully simplistic cover – The Secrets of Strangers will fast get under your skin.
I felt as though I were present in that little cafe and found myself desperately trying to think of a positive way out for the gunman. I was willing Abi to come up with a clever way for him to get off.
There is pure magic in these pages as the story unfolds and the lives, hopes and dreams of the hostages becomes known to us.
I cared about these people. I cared about the gunman, I cared about the damn dogs outside and I cared about the negotiator.
My video review:
Blurb: A regular weekday morning veers drastically off-course for five strangers whose paths cross in a London café – their lives never to be the same again when an apparently crazed gunman holds them hostage. But there is more to the situation than first meets the eye and as the captives grapple with their own inner demons, the line between right and wrong starts to blur. Will the secrets they keep stop them from escaping with their lives?
