Okay, so I'm officially embarrassed.
I knew I'd had this book for a while, but I didn't quite realise how long.
Nor have I got a single good reason for why it took me so long to pick it up, because I liked the first book "I SEE YOU".
Lazy review housekeeping is the only excuse I've got which is why I'm so embarrassed.
But not a word of a lie, this is one of those really good thrillers that just draw you on and on. Sure there's cliffhangers at the end of each chapter ala TV (which would normally get up my nose a little). Sure there's a touch of the unrealistic about some of the scenarios.
But that's the sign of a really good thriller - somewhere there's a little voice saying "What a Lot of Tosh" and yet you cannot put the damn thing down.
From the Blurb:
We Know who you are. Nick Horrigan thinks that he has his life back on track after a mysterious, traumatic incident that occurred just before his eighteenth birthday. He has forgotten about the past, and lives contentedly in LA.
I snapped awake at 2:18am, the bloodshot numerals staring at me from the nightstand. For years on end, I woke up at this exact time every night, regardless of what time zone I was in. But after seventeen years, I had just started sleeping through the night. I had finally outrun the old fears. Or so I had convinced myself.
Over the past two decades, Nick Horrigan has built a quiet, safe life until, one night, a SWAT team bursts into his apartment, grabs him and drags him to a waiting helicopter. A terrorist has seized control of a nuclear reactor, threatening to blow it up.
And the only person he’ll talk to is Nick.
When they come face to face, he promises to tell Nick the real truth behind the events that shattered his life twenty years ago.
At seventeen years old, Nick Horrigan made a deadly mistake—one that cost his stepfather his life, endangered his mother, and sent him into hiding for years. Now, what Nick discovers in that nuclear plant leaves him with only two choices—to start running again, or to fight and finally uncover the secrets that have held him hostage all these years.
As Nick peels back layer after layer of lies and deception, buffeted between the buried horrors of the past and the deadly intrigues of the present, he finds his own life—and the lives of nearly everyone he loves—at risk. And the only thing guiding him through this deadly labyrinth are his stepfather’s dying words: TRUST NO ONE.
