The Passenger by Daniel Hurst

4.5 Stars from me

I whizzed through this book! I often wonder if that is actually a completely annoying thing for an author to hear – so, sorry Daniel Hurst if that is the case!

It is fast paced and exciting and a whole bunch of unexpected things happen – I loved it!

He delivers an ultimatum . She needs to give him the code for the safe where she keeps her savings before the train reaches Brighton – or she’ll never see Louise again.

Convinced that the threat is real, Amanda is stunned, horrified. She knows she should give him the code, but she can’t. Because she also knows there is a terrible secret in that safe which will destroy her life and Louise’s too…
