Dr Maria Martinez is out of prison and on the run. Her mission? To get back to the safety of her family. Little does she know that this might be the most dangerous place of all…

I read and enjoyed The Spider in the Room, now retitled, and enjoyed that. But this one, not so much. I felt the attempts at tension were at times desperate and I didn’t like the switch in times between before capture and after capture as at times I wanted to shout, ‘enough already we know she’s been captured’. Having said that, the plot, once it got going was great with twists and turns and Maria was, as before, sharply drawn with regard to her struggling with her Asperger’s.

I realise I’m flying against the other reviews on this one, but can only give my own honest opinion. I was given a copy of this book by the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. Click the cover to go to the Amazon book page.
