About The Book: A nerve-twisting thriller from bestselling author Tim Adler. How much do we really know about those we love? Kate is visiting Albania with her husband Paul, a much needed break from Paul's stressful website business. 'Hold still,' says Kate, taking a picture as Paul steps onto the hotel room balcony. 'We'll always be together,' Paul responds. Suddenly there is screaming below and a blaring car horn. Kate stares down from the balcony at the broken body of her husband lying lifeless in the street. Overcome with grief, Kate can't accept the truth of Paul's tragic death, and replays the incident over and over again, searching her pictures for a vital clue to what really happened. When she meets the enigmatic Priest at a grief support group, they journey together into a dangerous world of violence and secrets as Kate realises what Paul really meant when he said he would never leave her......
This book follows Kate who photographed her husbands death and is convinced he was murdered. Throughout the story we follow her every move into trying to figure out if her husband was murdered or if it was a tragic accident.
For such a basic story plot-line, this story did not disappoint. It wasn't such a great beginning but as I got into the book it picked up and left me hooked. The ending came out of no-where and left me in shock! I was disappointed when the story ended as i really wanted the story to continue. Lets hope Adler writes more stories in he future as i will defiantly be purchasing more of his books after reading this phenomenal book.I would defiantly recommend this book to any person who loves to read a thriller.
